The puck form Patrick Kane’s goal that won Chicago it’s first Stanley Cup in 54 years has been missing ever since overtime in Game 6. An important part of history, even the FBI has investigated the whereabouts of the mysterious puck.
Now almost a year later, there may be a break in the case of the missing puck. Steve Miller, an 11-year NHL linesmen, has been removed from working any playoff games for the remainder of the season.
Miller reffed the night of the Stanley Cup, and in amateur video shot of the game winning goal, Miller is seen a “small black object” in the goal crease. While Miller denies any wrong doing, you can’t help but wonder what the puck happened to it?
The FBI is stepping in to help find the puck from the Stanley Cup game winning goal scored by Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Kane. The puck has been missing ever since Kane scored the overtime goal clinching the Stanley Cup for the Blackhawks in six games against the Philadelphia Flyers. Footage from the game shows NHL linesman Steve Miller skating towards the net and picking up the puck. Not only is the FBI getting involved but Grant Deporter, CEO of Harry Caray’s, offered a $50,000 reward for the missing puck. The FBI is searching for the puck on their own time to get to the bottom and find out what the puck happened?!?
This Sunday the NFC Championship game versus the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers will be played on Fox, and the network is taking full advantage with the upcoming season of American Idol premiering this week. American Idol winner Lee DeWzye tweeted, “National Anthem at home, yes. Go Bears.”
During last week’s divisional playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, the Bears enlisted Chicago fan favorite Jim Cornelison to sing the National Anthem. Cornelison is famous for singing the National Anthem at Chicago Blackhawks games where it has become a tradition for fans to cheer for the entire song. If Cornelison is out and DeWzye’s in, I am sure Bears fans will still find something to cheer about.
