New, comments

Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the world of hockey.

Apologies for the delayed Bag Skate this morning, there was a little miscommunication but I'll assume we were just distracted by that insane five minutes in the third period. I had to watch the game on DVR since I was out for my mom's birthday and missed it live -- still totally awesome, though.

Anyways, here's the latest news:

**The Denver Post fired longtime columnist Adrian Dater for inappropriate behavior on social media. There's a brief note from me on the situation at the bottom of this post. (Awful Announcing)

Editor's Note: I also wanted to take a brief moment to say that, in light of recent events across the online hockey community, we're going to be taking a harder stance at SCH in terms of moderating comments that might foster a community that's unwelcoming to certain people, and women specifically. This is far more important than arguing about how to win hockey games or support the team, it's about supporting our fellow fans as legitimate equals in every way. The vast majority of you have always been fantastic in fostering a place for all Blackhawks fans, and it would be a shame to let a few spoil the whole. I apologize to anyone who has been offended by things said in these comments sections and hope we can all do better going forward. Go 'Hawks.
