Bettman statement on incident in London, Ontario
NEW YORK -- Gary Bettman, Commissioner of the National Hockey League, today released the following statement regarding an incident at Thursday night's pre-season game between the Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers in London, Ontario.:

"We have millions of great fans who show tremendous respect for our players and for the game. The obviously stupid and ignorant action by one individual is in no way representative of our fans or the people of London, Ontario."
Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
