WARROAD, Minn. -- The Stanley Cup is headed to Warroad. T.J. Oshie said Thursday that he will bring the Stanley Cup to the northern Minnesota town where he played high school hockey on July 24 -- his personal designated day with the famed trophy. Members of the Stanley Cup-winning team each get one day with the trophy to do nearly whatever they want. Oshie won the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals last month. There haven't been any details released on a public showing in Warroad yet.
GRAND FORKS—T.J. Oshie will have his day with the Stanley Cup on July 24. He's expected to bring it back to the area, but exact details are not yet available and it is unclear whether there will be enough time for a public event to go along with it. Oshie, who played high school hockey at Warroad and college hockey at the University of North Dakota, won the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals last month. Each player on the winning team is designated one day with the Stanley Cup.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba—The Winnipeg Whiteout can be tamed after all.

GRAND FORKS — Referee Dan Dreger was on his hands and knees, blood streaming from his face and into a small puddle on the ice. His palate, the roof of his mouth, was cracked in half lengthwise—from his upper teeth all the way to the back of his throat. When he closed his mouth, his upper and lower teeth didn't line up anymore. Facial bones on both sides of his nose were fractured. The area between his upper lip and his left nostril was cut open, in need of three dozen stitches.
WINNIPEG—Bell MTS Place was full with fans decked out in white jerseys, shirts, pants, hair and beards. Two women even wore their wedding dresses to get in the spirit of the Winnipeg Whiteout, a famed playoff tradition in the city that dates back to the 1980s. They started partying on the street adjacent to Bell MTS Place in the afternoon, packed the arena by the time the teams came out for warmups and chanted "go Jets go" throughout the game. At long last, they didn't have to stop celebrating when the final horn sounded.
