The Blue Jackets beat the Stars 2-1 in Columbus last night. Both teams now sit at 2-3-1 on the young, lockout-shortened season. Sounds unremarkable, right? Well, except for what might go down as one of the best plays of this entire NHL season, maybe.
We’d venture to guess that casual hockey fans (and hey, probably a lot of hardcore fans too) have two events high up on their wish list of things to see when they attend a game – goals and fights. Last night, the Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars delivered.
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy a good hockey fight, but one drawback of them is that they rarely involve big stars. Scorers are scorers, enforcers are enforcers, and that’s generally that. But sometimes, gloriously, roles reverse.
In what may be the most awesome story you’ll hear about a former NHL coach’s solid citizenship today, Ken Hitchcock, former Stanley-Cup-winning Dallas Stars skipper, helped thwart an attempted shoplifter in Kelowna, British Columbia earlier this week.
