It was instinct more than anything. Marian Hossa had just scored his third goal of the game Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Kings, a hat trick.
Eric Simpson did what any hockey fan raised in Ohio, within an hour of Detroit, would do. He spotted a hat and threw it on the ice. It’s a longtime hockey tradition, but, unfortunately, it wasn’t his hat.
His stepson, Chris Millar, was furious. Well, not immediately. His initial reaction?
“He was stunned,” Simpson said.
So Simpson tried to get Millar’s lucky hat back.
