Quinn, Patrick make wager on Blackhawks, Bruins NHL final

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick have made a wager on the National Hockey League finals featuring the Chicago Blackhawks and the Boston Bruins.

Quinn's office said in a release Tuesday that the governor of the losing team's state will volunteer at a food bank of the winning governor's choice. That means Patrick would volunteer at the Greater Chicago Food Depository if the Blackhawks win and Quinn would volunteer at the Greater Boston Food Bank if the Bruins win.

Quinn says Patrick is "skating on thin ice" betting against the Blackhawks. Patrick says he looks forward to "seeing the Bruins circle the ice" with the Stanley Cup.

Game 1 of the best of 7 series is Wednesday night in Chicago.
