Early in the third period, Beauchemin delivered a blindside hit to Jeff Carter that resulted in an injury to the Columbus forward. Jacques meanwhile, delivered an elbow to R.J. Umberger with 5:43 left in the game. He was given a five-minute major for boarding.
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
