Obama Honors Chicago Blackhawks For Stanley Cup Hat Trick

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is honoring his hometown Chicago Blackhawks for their third Stanley Cup win six years.

Obama says his presidency appears to have brought the team good luck and he's hoping they'll claim one more championship before he leaves office.

Obama noted that seven players participated in all three championships. But he paid particular tribute to "two unsung heroes." Goalie Scott Darling and Kimmo Timonen overcame blood clots to hoist the cup at age 40.
