Blackhawks at the White House
Fortunate sons
As NHL executives awaited the Chicago Blackhawks to begin a private tour of the White House early Friday afternoon, the Fago and Waivada families noticed that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was standing near 15th and E streets outside the White House. They ware here for a youth hockey tournament for their Mite-age sons. Tyler Fogu and Brendan Waivada, both Devils fans,  were extra fortunate because they also got photos with former Devils goalie Kevin Weekes.
Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
