Blackhawks to appear on Whitney
The Chicago Blackhawks will be making an appearance on the NBC sitcom Whitney.
NBC's NHL broadcasts don't get underway until the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend, but the League is already making its way on to the network in a manner that would make famed fictional Blackhawks fan Clark Griswold proud.

In an upcoming episode of the NBC sitcom Whitney, Chris D'Elia and Dan O'Brien's characters make their on-ice allegiance known as they commiserate over a missed shot by Troy Brouwer -- still a Blackhawk for the purposes of the episode, though he now plays for the Capitals. Displaying the superstition that fandom is heir to, the pair then debate over whose apartment is likely to help the team more and the finer points of recycling.

Whitney airs Thursday nights at 9:30 ET on NBC.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
