Tribute To Moms

Four days ago I posted about the Blackhawks using pink hockey sticks this weekend in an effort to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Today the story hit the web in a big way and I have had many hits and emails looking for that topic. Here is the article from the CP via the Toronto Star,
Some NHL players will hit the ice this weekend with pink sticks. In a tribute to hockey moms and to raise awareness of breast cancer, Tie Domi, Mats Sundin, Steve Yzerman, Sidney Crosby and others — will have a pink stick in hand tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday. TPS Hockey, the sports equipment company, is forking out an estimated $50,000 for the initiative which sprouted in the Gretzky family home in Brantford, Ont. The idea took root shortly after the death in December of Wayne Gretzky's mother, Phyllis. "It's a tribute to hockey moms," said Brad Janson, TPS's director of pro-hockey.
