Hossa plays in his 1,000th NHL game
DETROIT – Marian Hossa tried to treat Sunday just like any other of the 999 games he has played during his NHL career.
But even before he stepped onto the ice for the 1,000th time at Joe Louis Arena, fans in Detroit made sure he remembered it. When 15-year veteran’s name was announced the Blackhawks’ starters, the boos that accompanied any mention of the visiting team, grew louder.
Every time Hossa touched the puck during the first period of the Hawks’ 2-1 shootout win, the boos returned. When Hossa was recognized in between the first and second periods with a public address announcement and by having an image of him in a Red Wings sweater on the JumboTron, the reception was more boos than cheers.
