Burke staying strong

Brian Burke, the general manager of the Maple Leafs and the Team USA hockey team, met with reporters Sunday. It started with a chat about hockey. As this story by NHL.com explains, it turned into a talk about loss.

Burke's 21-year-old son, Brendan, died early this month in a car crash.

"I cry less every day," Burke told reporters Sunday.

Brendan Burke became well-known in hockey circles after ESPN's John Buccigross told Brendan's story in December.
