    Probably not something I would normally bring up here, but I am since it seems there's a select few that read here and could appreciate this.  I'd delete it in a week if I could too, so by all means Jon...

    Mikko Koivu played in his 1000th game Sunday the 1st, all with the Wild, which turns out he's the 55th player to play his first 1000 games all with one team.  But he also got his 700th point on an assist.  But then it went to a SO, which was the first for the Wild this year.  They are an absolutely abysmal team when it comes to the 3 on 3 OT so while I don't care for the SO, was just happy we got through the OT.  Wild did their three skaters and Stars too, Parise and Seguin both with awesome goals.  Went to 4th round and Koivu, who hadn't scored in a SO in like 2 years (per Boudreau), scored on his patented move, which is an absolute killer if you can pull it off.  Was just so awesome, such an epic night, 1000 games and 700 points, SO winner, brother Saku (among other family) watching on.  Saku btw, had something like 830 points in over 1100 games and is 8 years older.  Was trying to include a video link but could not.
