Yzerman scores his 690th goal to tie Mario Lemieux. And Chris Chelios becomes the first player to ever play 400 games for three different teams. The Red Wings have a gawdy record but it should be pointed out they played 24 games this year against St. Louis, Columbus and Chicago and they lost only once.
Anaheim Mighty Ducks forward Teemu Selanne is the NHL’s offensive player of the week. Selanne, 35, had four goals and six assists for six points as Anaheim went 4-0 last week.
Toskala, 29, went 3-0 last week with a 1.66 goals-against average and .946 save percentage last week, including a 6-0 shutout victory over the St. Louis Blues on March 21.
Henrik Lundqvist heard the cheers before the lights brightened the ice for the third period.
Fans grew tired of backup goalie Kevin Weekes and were frustrated that the New York Rangers appeared on the verge of a third straight loss.
The roar began as Lundqvist led his teammates out of the tunnel, grew louder when he was announced into the game, and was deafening when he blanked the Buffalo Sabres in a shootout Monday night that gave the Rangers a rousing 5-4 victory.
