What we learned in the NHL last week: Quenneville shouldn’t be scapegoat for Blackhawks’ problems

The Washington Capitals generously planned to donate their half of their 50/50 raffle proceeds last Wednesday to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, which is aiding those affected by the murder of 11 people at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. The jackpot climbed to $38,750, with the winner to get $19,375. But the winner, a Capitals season ticket holder, waived his right to the money so it would all go to the Jewish Federation. “Look, I could never write that check by myself. But it was easy. It was simple. It was the right thing to do,” he told the Washington Post, which granted him anonymity because he wanted to keep attention focused on the tragedy.
