UPDATE: FBI Helping Chicago Restaurant Look for Game 6 Puck, We Think We Know Who Has It

Linesmen Steve Miller, what a joker he is

And it's not Chris Pronger.

As we told you last spring, a Chicago restaurant is offering a $50,000 reward for the puck Patrick Kane slipped between the legs of Michael Leighton. It seems in all of the confusion of the Stanley Cup winning goal somebody stole the puck- Pronger says it wasn't him.

Enter the Federal Bureau of Investigation: [FOX Sports]

One attempt to claim the reward has already failed after the FBI used specialized equipment to show that the puck in question was not the winning one.

Officers believe they will be able to compare each nick on any puck that is turned in to digitally enhanced images they have of the winning goal.

"We feel we have enough in terms of visual evidence to include or exclude any future pucks," Chicago FBI spokesman Ross Rice said.

 

Perhaps their time would be better spent hunting down murderers, domestic terrorists, or the heist Ruben J. Amaro pulled off this winter. Either way, all of the fancy equipment isn't doing a very good job.

[UPDATE: The folks from the FBI tell us that they are not using tax payers dollars and are doing this on their own time. We figured as much.]

Thanks to some crack detective work- so we can finally show once and for all that a Flyer didn't steal the puck- we're pretty sure of who knows the whereabouts of the puck: Linesmen Steve Miller.

The video below, which shows Miller picking up the puck, follows him around for a blurry five minute shell game. We pieced together videos from NBC, CBC, and YouTube to follow Miller until the time the officials left the ice.

It's likely Miller held onto to the puck until the Stanley Cup presentation, when we see him hand something to a man in a suit, who then heads up the Flyers' hallway. 

There is some exchange between officials and players prior to that moment (which is shown), but it doesn't appear as though the puck was ever handed to a player. If it was, someone (Jonathan Toews) is hiding something, because the Blackhawks are as confused as the rest of us.

Please excuse my nasally narration, I ad-libbed this while playing the video back. Bump up the resolution to see it more clearly- it's already very blurry.

The video was taken from these YouTube videos: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

The 44 second mark of this one is where we clearly see Miller pick up the puck.

Miller might not have the puck, but he damn sure knows who does. Why doesn't somebody just ask him? Either way, I'm tired of looking at footage of the Blackhawks winning the Cup.

  1. With all the crazy stuff going on around the world and in our own country were wasting tax payers money on hockey pucks. Screw you FBI.

  2. I’ve dealt with the FBI in a professional manner over the years and this doesn’t surprise me. While it’s their Chicago Office’s doings I’m sure it’s the culture that’s encouraged by Director Mueller (and maybe his bosses boss being from Chicago may also be an influence this time). It says the agents are helping on their own time, but still, they’re using taxpayer funded equipment.

  3. Huh. It’s not like there are kids being kidnapped on a daily basis, murderers out roaming the streets, or drug dealers around. Glad this is at the top of the list of shit that needs to be found. You go, FBI.

  4. I’d like to thank Kyle Scott for proving to all of us out there that people with marginal writing skills can run a blog. Thank you sir. I think I’ll make a facebook fanpage for Sergei Bobrovsky to start off my following

  5. Is there a grassy knoll in this video somewhere in Philly’s version of the Zapruder film? And I would crack up if Kane put that thing down his pants and after all this time the stupid thing has been on a shelf next to his bunk bed.

  6. A few things standout from this post.
    #1) Steve Miller picked up that puck.
    #2) This is perhaps the best piece of investigative journalism I’ve come across today.
    #3) Emrick’s blown call of that final shot / play is only equaled by the utter confusion that must have been felt by the fans in the stadium.
    #4) ESPN should run a full special on this video and play it in its entirety on SC
    Awesome.

  7. Thanks writing! The reason for your article is always to document your lifetime and deliver your own personal thoughts. Some notion tend to be unique with me but really different. What you long for to offer to the modern society, I think I have already been known that. So long as most of us do well and believe that.

  8. I leave a response each time I especially enjoy a article
    on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.

    I was moved enough to drop a commenta response 😉 I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be simply me or does it appear like a few of these comments look like they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on other social sites, I’d like to follow you.
    Could you make a list all of all your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook
    page or twitter feed?

  9. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I came across this in my search for something concerning this.

  10. Agree ! !! .

    They are a serious company. I just received my product 24 hours ago. I would like to send them all my regards.I am amazed not only with the quickness of the delivery since I ordered them so late last night, but there has not been one time that I have spoken to their peoples that I have gotten anything less than A service. So, often in life we feel the need to complain about lousy service and never take the time to compliment those who actually take pride in their work and appreciate their customers. That is why I felt the need to let them know they have a customer for life in me and I will be sure to spread the word! .

  11. I do believe all of the concepts you have offered in your post.
    They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless,
    the posts are very quick for newbies. Could you please prolong them a
    little from next time? Thanks for the post.
