Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times (Wednesday edition),
During a timeout in the first period of tonight’s game between the Lightning and Red Wings, the public address announcer at Joe Louis Arena will introduce Steve Yzerman.
A shot of Yzerman in his seat will be shown on the scoreboard, which then will run a video tribute; at least that is the plan, the Red Wings said.
It is a display Yzerman probably could do without.
Not that he won’t appreciate it, “But the game is about Tampa Bay playing Detroit. It’s not about me,” Yzerman said. “It shouldn’t be about me.”
But in a way it is.
