Blackhawks

Illinois, Massachusetts governors make NHL wager

CHICAGO – The governors of Illinois and Massachusetts have made a wager on the National Hockey League finals featuring the Blackhawks and the Boston Bruins.

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn's office said in a release Tuesday that the governor of the losing team's state will volunteer at a food bank of the winning governor's choice.

That means Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick would volunteer at the Greater Chicago Food Depository if the Blackhawks win. And Quinn would volunteer at the Greater Boston Food Bank if the Bruins are victorious.

Quinn says Patrick is "skating on thin ice" betting against the Blackhawks. Patrick says he looks forward to "seeing the Bruins circle the ice" with the Stanley Cup.

Game one of the best of seven series takes place Wednesday night in Chicago.
