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.
It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy. Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
