Chris Christie Likes Hockey, But Won’t Push for Contract

A day after New Jersey’s two U.S. senators called for the NHL lockout to end, Gov. Chris Christie says he’s not going there.

The governor says he’s a hockey fan and would like to see players back on the ice. And he says the Devils’ games are a big deal economically for Newark.

But Christie says he doesn’t think the league or its players union would care if he calls on them to settle.

The governor says politicians who weigh in on such things are just “grandstanding.”

The Republican’s remarks Tuesday came a day after Democratic U.S. Sens. Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg sent a letter urging a settlement.
