Difficult Time For The Bowman Family

from Adrian Dater at Versus,

Scotty Bowman has his name on the Stanley Cup a record 11 times, and he very much wants a 12th because it would be right next to the name of his son, Stan. Anybody want to bet against him?

“It would be a special thing,” the 76-year-old Bowman said Thursday night from his residence in Amherst, N.Y., while watching the first period of the Canadiens-Flyers game. “But, one thing at a time. It’s going to be a tough game tomorrow night with San Jose.”

Bowman probably would be with his son in Chicago, but he is staying close by another of his five children at the moment in Amherst. His son, David, is under hospice care, and it’s a tough time for him and his wife of more than 40 years, Suella. David was born with hydrocephalus, a serious neurological disorder that left him partially blind and mentally disabled.

Stan, the general manager of the Blackhawks, is just as affected by his brother’s condition, and the team knows he could be called away at any time. But soldiering through difficult personal situations has been a hallmark of all the Bowman family.
