A former NHL goalie has been arrested in Bowling Green on public intoxication and criminal mischief charges.
Edward (Ed) Belfour, 54, of McKinney, Texas was arrested after an incident at the Kentucky Grand Hotel in downtown Bowling Green.
According to an arrest citation, Belfour is accused of damaging property at the hotel. When police arrived, Belfour was located laying on the floor and clutching a curtain rod that had been ripped out of the wall.
Police said Belfour had slow, slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and could barely stand up.
Reaching 20 victories requires the Wings to win roughly a quarter (.258) of their remaining games, which is almost the pace they set through 51 games (.235). Jimmy Howard has played considerably better the last four games, and Jonathan Bernier is expected to be back the first week of February, but even when the goaltending has been good, the Wings have struggled. They are flirting with breaking a record black mark for the organization: The 1985-86 Wings hold the franchise record for worst season at 17-57-6 and 40 points (but they made the playoffs the next season, under the leadership of first-year captain Steve Yzerman).
That's part of the respose from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press when a fan asked "“Why should I continue to watch this team? Will they even win 20 games?"
THREE HARD LAPS
* Thatcher Demko established the longest season-opening home point streak in Canucks history and backstopped Vancouver to its ninth straight win at Rogers Arena.
* Patrick Marleau joined Gordie Howe (24), Mark Messier (22) and Alex Delvecchio (22) as the fourth player in NHL history to score 10-plus goals in at least 22 consecutive seasons.
* William Nylander (1-1—2) scored in his fourth straight game and Auston Matthews continued his Maurice ‘Rocket’ Richard Trophy chase as the Maple Leafs have netted at least four goals in each of their last seven road games.
