"It feels great, especially doing it here at home before fans. It was great to reach that milestone here tonight. I thought we played real well, too, once we got our legs. We did a much better job in our own zone."
That courtesy of freep.com. What you may not have seen (I think I noticed the little red commercial light being on) was a tribute video played on the big screen at JLA to celebrate Lidstrom's acheivment. The place went absolutely nuts and King Lidas saluted the crowd from the bench...what a moment.
It was a wonderful end to a game that started out really, really bad. All's well that ends well I guess. I said it once, and I'll say it again, Molson Triple X should not be legal at public events. I'm going to have some apologizing to do to the Mrs. when I head to Grand Rapids this weekend.
