Tonight, the Dallas Stars retired the jersey number of the great Mike Modano.
To commemorate this, NHL Network played the game on March 17, 2007, when Modano became the NHL’s all-time leading scorer among US-born players; he scored twice to catch and then pass Joey Mullen for the career mark.
Lost in that was the captain of Dallas’ opponent, Kimmo Timonen, who scored twice to lead the Predators to the victory.
After this replay, the NHL Network went to the retirement ceremony, and then to the Toronto Maple Leafs – Philadelphia Flyers. In this game, the Flyers’ Kimmo Timonen scored twice.
I find things like that to be quite fun.
What’d they say?
