More memorable than the win on Friday and that horrific loss last night was the tribute and ovation given to Jere Lehtinen during Friday’s game.
It was so touching, and I’ll admit that it got me choked up. God, Lehtinen’s so classy. He’s so humble that he probably only expected a few seconds of a tribute on the video board, not a two-to-three minute standing ovation.
It’s nice that we got to honor Jere like that. With any luck, we can someday honor Sergei Zubov with his own standing O as he never did get a proper send-off.
No matter, some day in the not-so-distant future, we’ll get to honor all three of our franchise guys, Lehtinen, Zubov, and Mike Modano when we retire their numbers.
Thanks for everything, guys.
