Obama to welcome Bruins to White House on Monday
President Barack Obama will welcome the Bruins to the White House Monday to honor the team and their 2011 Stanley Cup victory.
Last summer, the Boston Bruins all had their day with the Stanley Cup.

On Monday, they'll get their day at the White House -- and their charitable foundation will receive some well-deserved recognition.

President Barack Obama will welcome the Bruins to the White House to honor the team and their 2011 Stanley Cup victory, a seven-game series win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Continuing his tradition of recognizing sports teams for their work off the ice, President Obama will highlight the Boston Bruins Foundation which has raised and donated more than $7 million to various charitable organizations in the six New England states.

The Bruins will visit the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center on Tuesday night.
Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
