BEWARE: An auto-play clip from Fox 2 lurks within!
We'll start with highlights, and NHL.com's highlights are narrated by the NBC schmucks:
TSN posted a 4:09 highlight clip; Sportsnet posted a 2:53 highlight clip; ESPN--with eight frickin' minutes of Barry Melrose and John Buccigross (Melrose LIKED the Walkom call); NBC posted a 2:08 highlight clip; and Comcast Sportsnet Chicago
TSN's Brent Johnson, Darren Dreger and James Duthie thanked the hockey gods for Brent Seabrook scoring to assuage Walkom's call--even though they feel that what David Bolland did to Gustav Nyquist on the game-winning goal "would have been a penalty" at other junctures;
That's Hockey 2 Night talked about the Hawks' "rollercoaster run," Steve Kouleas and Jamie McLennan raved the Hawks' ability to battle through "controversy and adversity" and they praised Corey Crawford;
Their post-game offerings include a 4:58 clip of comments from Brent Seabrook, Jonathan Toews, Niklas Kronwall, Patrick Kane and Niklas Hjalmarsson speaking to the media, and they posted Hawks coach Joel Quenneville's 8:22 post-game presser and Wings coach Mike Babcock's 5:10 presser;
NBC made sure to post Mike Milbury and Keith Jones' lament about the Walkom call available and highlighted its "insanity";
The Chicago Tribune posted clips of Niklas Hjalmarsson, Brent Seabrook, Patrick Sharp and Joel Quenneville speaking to the media after the game, and they also posted a clip of Henrik Zetterberg speaking to the media;
The Chicago Sun-Times posted a clip of Seabrook speaking to the media;
Comcast Sportsnet Chicago posted an interview with Gary Bettman about the "changes" to the Wings-Hawks rivalry, they re-posted the Walkom call, Seabrook's goal and his post-goal interview with Pierre McGuire, and they offer their own highlight clip;
Niklas Hjalmarsson also talked about the no-goal call, Bryan Bickell gave a post-game interview, CSN Chicago's Steve Konroyd weighed in on the game, they looked back at the "epic series" and they noted that Babcock said that when kids dream of playing in Game 7, they don't dream of losing the game;
The Blackhawks' website showed the Hawks celebrating after the game, they did post the handshake line...
The CBC posted a clip in which the announcers lamented the disallowed goal, in-game clips spotlighting the physical play between the teams, a bio of Bryan Bickell, Don Cherry blathering about benches on the same side of the ice yielding the Filppula injury and praising Brent Searbrook and David Bolland after the game (though he praised Howard, too), an ironic pre-game interview with Wings coach Mike Babcock and then quick post-game clips from Babcock and Quenneville's post-game pressers, and the ever-requested post-game show is 22 minutes long;
The Detroit Free Press posted Helene St. James' take on the game;
