After a nasty blow to Avalanche center Nazem Kadri, a suspension and a hot Hades hockey seat should await Evander Kane

Will someone give the Avs a broom, so they can sweep Edmonton out of the NHL playoffs and take out Oilers thug Evander Kane with the trash?

Kane is a blemish on the hockey game. The kind that requires bleach and a wire brush to get the stink off the ice.

What Kane did to Nazem Kadri, slamming the Avalanche center against the boards with obvious intent to hurt, fits the modus operandi of a scoundrel who is known to flash a fake COVID-19 vax card and has been charged of swallowing on a stinking pile of gambling debts.

“The hit is the most dangerous thing in hockey,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said late Saturday after the Avs beat Edmonton, 4-2, to take a 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals. ‘Western Association. Kane “hit him headfirst from behind, eight feet off the boards”.

That the NHL is suspending Kane for at least two games is a given. The real puzzle is why Kane would be employed by a team in a city that loves hockey as much as Edmonton.

Unable to beat the Avs, Kane resorted to trying to hurt anyone wearing a Colorado jersey who got in his way. His calling card is chaos. It is dangerous to turn your back on an unscrupulous hockey player.

“Obviously it’s a huge loss,” said Bednar, who doesn’t expect Kadri to return to the lineup anytime soon. ” He went out. He will be out for this series at least… if not longer.

It took just 66 seconds in game three for Kane to lose his mind. As Kadri collected the puck beyond the baseline on the side of Edmonton goaltender Mike Smith’s glove, Kane attacked his opponent and made a dirty crosscheck into the Avs center that sent Kadri sprawling , his left shoulder crashing against the boards.

“I don’t like it,” said Avalanche captain Gabe Landeskog, who witnessed Kane’s cheap shot from the Colorado bench.

These bad shots are inexcusable, “the ones that send shivers down your spine,” Landeskog added. “You are taught from an early age that you don’t do that.”

Kadri was painfully slow to get up. In obvious discomfort, he immediately went to the Avalanche locker room and did not return to action.

Hockey is a tough sport of brave men proud of their hooked noses and not afraid to spit chiclets. But who raised Kane to disrespect his enemies?

He received a five-minute major penalty for tackling Kadri. It was not a hockey game. It was a premeditated attack.

If the NHL has an ounce of common sense, the league office will suspend Kane for anything less than two games, for no other reason than to prevent Kane from hurting someone else on an Avalanche team that is chasing the Stanley Cup.

The Avalanche dominated the run of play so often that Game 3 might have been a laugh without Smith. The Edmonton goaltender was a walrus, crumbling on the ice, throwing every inch of his body past Colorado’s shots, robbing Andrew Cogliano and Landeskog with saves so spectacular a man could say: coo coo ca choo.

But the hockey gods are taking notes. There’s a hot spot waiting in Hockey Hades for Kane.
