from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,
After creating a bit of a firestorm when comments the Blackhawks center made about the Canucks’ Sedin brothers during a radio broadcast in Chicago on Monday night turned viral and drew a reaction from Vancouver, Bolland backtracked following the Hawks’ 4-3 shootout victory in St. Paul, Minn.
Bolland drew the ire of Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault during a broadcast of “Blackhawks Live at Harry Caray’s” on WGN-AM 720 when Bolland referred to the Sedin twins, Henrik and Daniel, as “sisters.”
Bolland was asked if the Sedins would still be sisters if they joined the Hawks.
“Well, they’ll never become Hawks,” Bolland said. “I don’t think we’d let them on our team. We’d be sure not to let them on our team. And, yeah, they probably still would be sisters. I think they might sleep in bunk beds. The older one has the bottom one, the younger one got the top.”
On Wednesday in Vancouver after the audio went viral, Vigneault responded.
