Sergei returns

December 31, 2005

From the Columbus Dispatch:


Scene of the crime
The Blue Jackets play the Detroit Red Wings at 7 p.m. tonight in Joe Louis Arena, their fourth meeting of the season. If it’s anything like their Dec. 20 game, it’ll be quite a scene.

The Red Wings won 4-3 in a shootout, and the game didn’t end until Blue Jackets center Sergei Fedorov — a legendary figure in his 13 seasons in Detroit — failed to score in the third round of the shootout.

Fedorov was booed lustily every time he touched the puck.

His return, not to mention the fact that it’s New Year’s Eve, should make for a loud night in The Joe.

“It’s usually hard to get a ticket, and there’s a great atmosphere around the rink,” Red Wings center Jason Williams told the The Detroit News. “It’s fun for both the fans and the players.

“With Sergei coming back, it’ll just add to the night.”
