Going For #5

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

Lidstrom turns 37 during the playoffs, and he’s supposed to be entering the twilight of his career and yet he is on course for his fifth Norris Trophy.
Early in the season, it seemed like Anaheim Ducks defenseman Chris Pronger, building off his strong playoff performance for the Edmonton Oilers last spring, might unseat Lidstrom. Pronger was the difference in much of Anaheim’s early success, but a broken foot temporarily derailed Pronger and Lidstrom’s durability and consistency kept moving him forward.
Starting play Thursday, Lidstrom leads the NHL with a plus-minus of plus-31 and he’s tied with Scott Niedermayer for most points by a defenseman with 44.
