What Do You Expect On Friday The 13th?

via Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

It was nearly a devastating doozy, but breathe easy Chicago fans and Buffalonians because the first malfunction of Patrick Kane’s day with the Cup has been rectified.

Kane and the Cup were stuck about three stories up in the bucket of a fire engine for about 20 minutes because the motor that controls the ladder had stopped working. After calling in the technicians, the firemen finally got their ladder working and Kane was returned successfully down to earth.

As he stepped off the ladder he was visibly shaking.

“It was a little scary, but anything with this (the Cup) is unexpected,” a clearly relieved Kane said after making his way down. “I’m just happy to be out.”

You can read more from Dan on Kane’s day with the Cup.

Also, a video is posted below with Kane stuck in the bucket, but the music is bad and all you see is some people in the bucket…

Did he beat up the fireman in control of the bucket, or does he save such macho stuff for old men who drive cabs for next to no money?
