Afternoon Line- Tommy Wingels

“This is a championship-caliber team. If you want to join a team that has the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup, this is the place to do it. The guys in this locker room believe it. The guys in this organization believe it. The coaches believe it. And anything but a championship is a failure.”

-Tommy Wingels of the Chicago Blackhawks.  Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times has more on Chicago.

Video- High Hit By Chara On Wingels?

via CSNBayArea,

Sharks winger Tommy Wingels was forced from a game in Boston after taking a high hit from Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara with 2:28 to go in the first period. Wingels did not return.

from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea,

If McLellan had a problem with the Chara hit, he didn’t express it in his postgame presser, although he said earlier he “didn’t have a good angle, so I can’t comment.”

“You know what, every time somebody is hit now we quickly run to the video and we analyze – was it legal, was it illegal? It’s a hard game, and it’s played by hard players that have to get involved physically night in and night out,” said the head coach. “They have to take some lumps, too. We have to give some lumps, we have to take some lumps. If it’s dirty, I think it should be severely dealt with. If it’s hard hockey, than so be it.”
