Quenneville Recovering In Hospital

UPDATED 02/17/11 8:03 a.m.

Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville was sent to the emergency room Tuesday night after experiencing what is described as severe discomfort while at his suburban Chicago home.

On Wednesday, the Blackhawks only said in a statement that the “undisclosed health concern” was “not of a cardiac nature.”

But on Thursday morning Versus Sports Network analyst Kelly Chase said Quenneville had suffered “a little bit of internal bleeding that couldn’t stop.”

Assistant coach Mike Haviland filled in as “acting head coach” for Wednesday night’s game against the Minnesota Wild.

“We’re all professionals,” Haviland said. “We can move forward. I mean, our thoughts are for sure with him and his wife and his kids. But certainly these guys are professionals and we know what’s at hand here.”

Although without Quenneville, the Blackhawks thrived against the Wild Wednesday night.

Troy Brouwer’s perfectly placed centering pass went off a Minnesota defenseman for the tiebreaking goal in the third period, helping Corey Crawford lead the Blackhawks to beat the Wild 3-1.

        What good is having an Apple product if you cant show it to everyone while screaming “LOOK AT ME!!!!”?

        Though it looks more like a blackberry than anything.

        Generally, you’re right. Can’t stand people who are at games and on their phones the ENTIRE TIME.. Those people are dopes.

        Although, I will admit… I do pull out my phone once in a while at games just to check texts and email… so if that makes me a dope… then guilty as charged.

        I would also however propose the possibility that the guy was just taking a picture. Looking at the trajectory of the phone’s camera and the players bench… maybe he was just taking a pic of Kaner… Then again, he probably posted it on facebook and gloated about his awesome seats… and that would make him a dope.

        Either way… he’s probably a dope.

        Jake, the thought never crossed my mind that he could be taking a photo (I am such a Luddite).

        I am reacting to my lifelong feeling/belief/observation that the best seats are often wasted on the worst @sshats [exception for Bears games] while the die-hard fans sit in the worst seats.
