Lidstrom Is In Town, So Are The Avs

I am starting the live blog a little early so you can discuss the sweater retirement of Nick Lidstrom, which starts at 6:30pm ET on FoxSports Detroit.

"The Perfect Human's"  #5 will be alongside so many other great Detroit Red Wings sweaters hanging in the Joe Louis rafters. 

Well deserved Nick, you are one of the all-time great defensemen to ever play.

 

Oh yes, a game too, the Avs are in town, the fast Avs if you want to call them.

Keep up boys, skate, attack in the offensive zone, score at least one more than Roy's boys and leave with 2 points.

It's a live blog bitches.

Some still cannot get that. Should provide a link to see it online. If I find one, I’ll post it.

It’s gonna be an emotional night. I’m looking forward to it.

Just win.

Thanks for covering the GDT for me today, Sir Paul.

Something flew into my eye when Vladdy stood up during that ovation. Freaking cosmic dust.

Yeah, limping really badly and probably not wanting to be on his feet a whole hell of a lot.

Can’t say that I blame him.
