Skratins Closing In On Record

from the Daily Times-Call,

This record won’t make a ripple anywhere.
Maybe a blurb on the ESPN crawler, but that’s about it.
But if everything goes OK over the next 12 days, Colorado Avalanche defenseman Karlis Skrastins will enter the NHL record books.
Skrastins played in his 482nd consecutive game in Sunday’s 3-1 loss at Detroit. He is four games shy of tying Tim Horton for most consecutive games played by a defenseman, a mark he will reach Feb. 6 against Florida.
Two days later, at home against Atlanta, he can sit atop the list.
