After Eric Staal tied it at 7-7, Defenseman Kris Letang scored on a ripper of a shot to give the Staals a 8-7 lead. But the Lidstroms would not go away, scoiring two goals 46 seconds apart to retake the lead at 9-8. Danny Briere ended Henrik Lundqvist's masterful run by beating the Rangers goalie at the far post. Then, Jonathon Toews re-staked the Lidstroms to the lead -- just its second of the game.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
