Blackhawks at the White House
Private time with the President
The Blackhawks players, coaches and front office staffers and their families enjoyed a private tour of the White House during the one o'clock hour. The team then took a private meeting with President Obama at 2. Heady stuff for all of the team, but especially American-born players Patrick Kane and 19-year-old Nick Leddy.

The President's remarks will be coming up soon outside on the South Lawn, and the White House buzz is this championship ceremony is particularly special with any number of Chicagoans working for the Administration.
Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
