Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith got into a testy exchange with a female Vancouver radio reporter after Monday’s loss to the Canucks. Karen Thomson thought Keith should have been penalized for a two-handed stick swipe he took as Daniel Sedin finished his breakaway in the second period for the Canucks’ third goal. Here’s the complete exchange, which sparked a lot of discussion in Vancouver on Monday night:

Reporter: Can you talk about what happened after the Daniel Sedin goal?

Keith: Which one was that one?

Reporter: Third goal.

Keith: Third one? Um, we scored one goal after that, I think. And then the game ended 3-1.

Reporter: Right after the goal when you were on the ice, right after he scored.

Keith: They scored. I went off the ice and took a minus. I don’t know, what are you talking about?

Reporter: Just checking.

Keith: What did you see?

Reporter: Well, it looked like maybe there was a penalty that went undetected. You seemed a bit frustrated.

Keith: Oh, no, I don’t think there was anything. I think he scored a nice goal and the ref was right there. That’s what the ref saw. We should get you as a ref maybe, eh?

Reporter: Yeah, maybe.

Keith: First female referee?

Reporter: I can’t skate, though.

Keith: Can’t play probably either, right?

Reporter: No (laughing).

Keith: But you’re thinking the game like you know it? Yeah, see ya.
