    The two biggest items in Washington, D.C., crossed paths on Saturday night as Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner posed with the Stanley Cup. It was a matter of pure coincidence as the president's daughter and son-in-law visited D.C. hotspot Café Milano for a date night while Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin was celebrating with the Stanley Cup. The Capitals won the Stanley Cup, the NHL's championship trophy, on Thursday. They defeated the underdog Las Vegas Golden Knights in the series, 4-1, to win their first Cup.

    Across their 43 seasons, the Washington Capitals have dabbled in hapless hockey and exquisite hockey, boring hockey and effective hockey, but never had they played winning hockey through four playoff rounds, all the way to a grueling, glorious end. It took a team hardened by those postseason lures but liberated from high expectations to complete a run as dazzling as it was cathartic, capping it on Thursday night by dispatching the upstart Vegas Golden Knights, 4-3, to win the first Stanley Cup in franchise history. It was the Capitals’ fourth consecutive victory in the finals after a disorienting 6-4 loss...

    VANCOUVER – Damage done to the psyche of those unwillingly caught up in last year’s Stanley Cup riot was the most expensive part of workers compensation claims related to the mayhem. In total, 24 of 51 filed claims were accepted by WorkSafeBC, the provincial workers compensation agency. Only four of them were for post-traumatic stress disorder, but the awards for those claims consumed $71,000 of the $117,000 in claims incurred in the riot’s aftermath. The Canadian Mental Health Association on its website says PTSD symptoms include flashbacks or nightmares, emotional numbing and withdrawing from friends and family. -snip- Kerry Jang,...

    POOR SPORTMENS conduct on display right after the Boston Bruins win the Stanley Cup Championship and it is NOT from the Vancouver Canucks team members themselves but from a large number of angry fans. While both the Boston Bruins and their fans both in Boston and throughout New England celebrate the Stanley Cup win after nearly forty years, the downtown area of the Canadian city of Vancouver EXPLODE into rioting. While I do give credit to the Vancouver Canucks for a successful season and a hard-fought effort to win the Stanley Cup, their fans could have learned from the team...
