Lidstrom Ties Points Record

Nicklas Lidstrom assisted on Brian Curranís first period goal last night in the New York Rangers game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. With that point, Lidstromís season total ends at 85. That ties him with Gary Suter for the points record by a defenseman in a season. Suter set that mark just last year. A marvelous achievement for the young blue liner. The talent always seemed to be there for him and now that he has talent around him, he was able to show what he can really do. Rangersí fans should be ecstatic about the future of this team. They made huge strides this season and narrowly missed the playoffs.
