Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,
Patrick Kane said he isn’t the mystery chirper who angered the Bruins’ Shawn Thornton during a game Tuesday in Boston, but the Blackhawks winger nearly paid the price for it anyway.
“I didn’t say anything,” Kane said Friday night before the Hawks played the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena. “You have the wrong guy on that one.”
Thornton was upset at something that was said as he made his way to the bench after suffering a deep gash on his forehead that took 40 stitches to close. Several of the Bruins apparently thought Kane was the culprit and confronted the 5-foot-10, 178-pound winger.
“I was going out for the (next) faceoff and the next thing I know three guys are around me,” said Kane, who has not been in a fight in his four NHL seasons. “I don’t know if they thought I said it or what. I was like, ‘What did I do to deserve this?’”
