How tough are the Detroit Red Wings? Go ahead. Ask me.
They’re really tough.
Brett Hull and Nick Lidstrom didn’t practice Wednesday. They were questionable for last night’s game against Edmonton. But neither of these guys likes to miss games. Lidstrom’s only missed 17 games in 12 seasons. Hull hasn’t missed any as a Red Wing.
So what happens? They both show up to beat Edmonton, 6-2. Hull had three assists and Lidstrom had 23 minutes of ice time and six minutes of penalties.
Not bad for guys who were supposedly too sore to play. Good thing they weren’t too sore to get stoked, man.
