Top 10 Detroit Red Wings moments of decade: Goodbye Mr. Hockey, hello Captain | Freep
There were plenty of big moments — both good and bad — for the Red Wings during the past 10 years. My personal favorite was attending the Winter Classic at the Big House. That was one hell of a party. For the franchise, however, the biggest moment has to be the return of Steve Yzerman, right?

Columbus’ John Tortorella assails referees, NHL in postgame rant | ESPN
In overtime, the Blackhawks were called for too many men on the ice with about 19 seconds left. The clock ran down 1.1 seconds after the play was whistled dead, but the time wasn’t added back. Blue Jackets defenseman Zach Werenski put the puck behind Chicago goalie Robin Lehner on the ensuing power play, but the buzzer had already sounded. Had those 1.1 seconds been put back on the clock, the goal likely would have ended the game.
I think I’d be pretty upset too.
