NEW YORK - Zach Galifianakis brought the ferns, and President Barack Obama opened a new avenue of presidential communication.
The website was briefly the number one source of referrals to Healthcare.gov, the Obama administration said, with some 19,000 people navigating directly from the video to the health care website in the first few hours.
"Gone are the days when your broadcasts - or yours or yours - can reach everybody that we need to reach," Obama press secretary Jay Carney said to broadcast journalists at the White House press briefing Tuesday.
Peverley hospitalized, teammates try to regroup

ST. LOUIS - Stars forward Rich Peverley remained hospitalized Tuesday in Dallas, undergoing heart tests after collapsing on the bench during a game that was postponed.

Even if the NHL hadn't postponed the game Monday night in Dallas with the Blue Jackets leading 1-0 early in the first period, linemate Tyler Seguin was done for the night.
