Patrick Kane’s Stanley Cup-winning shot didn’t just foil Philadelphia Flyers goalie Michael Leighton. A good chunk of the hockey watching public couldn’t tell that the puck crossed the red line on that sudden Kane shot. The chaos following the goal caused a lot of confusion and perhaps for that reason, the location of the Chicago Blackhawks’ Cup winning puck remains unknown.
The Chicago Tribune reports that the city’s high ranking investigators are willing to help the team track down the historic puck. Before you get angry about the waste of taxpayers money, relax: word is that the Chicago FBI are assisting the search “on their own time.”
You might think that Chris Pronger would be the hot witness in the case, but he at least claims that he was too dejected by that deciding loss to focus on his puck nabbing antics.
While the FBI is willing to lend a hand, this is still an unsolved mystery. Surely there’s some ice hockey/”cold case file” pun opportunties floating around, but I’ll leave those to our plucky commenters.
