Patrick Kane Arrested For Chris Browning Buffalo Cab Driver

Patrick Kane

I absolutely HATE stories like this. If you don’t already know, Chicago Blackhawks star forward, Patrick Kane, was arrested early Sunday morning for punching a cab driver in his hometown of Buffalo, NY. Apparently there was a dispute over some additional money owed to Patrick, and his cousin, James. As the story goes the Kanes gave the cab driver $15 for a $13.80 fare. The cab driver could only come up with the $1.00 in change, but could not produce the additional $.20. This sent the Kanes into an outrage and sparked them to attack the cab driver. While it is still unclear who punched the cabbie, Patrick was certainly involved. You can take in all of the details here, but I have a much larger issue.

Battle of Political Sensitivity; Blackhawks vs. Canucks

 

Prior to the post, I want to thank these sites for helping me with the research:

The Chicago Blackhawks open their first Stanley Cup Playoff second round for the first time since 1996, the year the Avalanche won the Cup. Although the series will open in Vancouver, the Canucks a 3-seed and the ‘Hawks a 4-seed, I have no doubt in my mind the Blackhawks will open the series with a win. Here’s why: I was walking by the boardroom to find out there are left over chocolate chip cookies and brownies! How does this correlate to the Blackhawks winning tonight? It doesn’t, but it’s my post and when I just walked back over for a second helping, I realized someone had dropped off some more. The first though that came to mind was if Chicago is any bit as good as the brownie I just had, it’s going to be a 4-game sweep. Let me dig a little deeper though, Chicago is coming off a tough 6-game battle with Calgary. Vancouver dismantled St. Louis in 4 games. The difference? Chicago is already playing at the tempo Vancouver can produce, Vancouver will probably need to go through the gear box before getting up to Chicago’s speed and skill. Overall, I cannot wait until 9pm tonight and most likely a rematch of what we saw at the end of the season. You have Chicago’s potent, and awakening, offense going against Vancouver’s stiffling defense and goaltending. Not to mention the teams were only seperated by 4 p oints during the regular season. Vancouver getting the better seed for winning the Northwest Division.

Recchi-ng crew officially arrives in boston

The Bruins pulled out a much needed victory this afternoon at the Garden, in one of the best Original 6 matchups of the year. I’ve been looking forward to this game for a few reasons:

1. An Original 6 team that has a lot of history with Boston. Most people don’t believe in the rivalry anymore, but I think the Original 6 is something the NHL really needs to play up.

2. Seeing some more of the young talent in the league. Kane, Toews, Versteeg, Keith, Huet, and Burish are all tremendous players and a lot of fun to watch.

Coolest NHL story this year

Chicago Blackhawsk

Probably the coolest story regarding the NHL this year. This was written by Rick Morrissey of the Chicago Tribune. Hockey is the best professional sport around, its players are honest, humble, and truly love the game. I think this story can sum up all of hockey, no matter at what level. You will hear basketball and football players talk about “family”, typically this terminology is used after gun charges, drug allegations, domestic abuse, murder charges, etc, but hockey players are able to physically show the definition of “family”. Sorry for the dramatics, but it’s true.

Link To Tribune Story

It began with the rarest of elements in professional sports: silence. No press release. No major announcement. No photo opportunity. Just the quiet of people doing a nice thing, the right thing.
