After a long career, 18+ years with the Dallas Stars, Modano signed a one-year contract with Detroit Red Wings. Michigan native son finally came home. On October 8, 2010, 5:35 of the first period of Detroit's 2010-2011 home opener, on just his second shift, Modano took a pass from Cleary and beat Anaheim goaltender Jonas Hiller for his first goal as a Red Wing. Wish I was there at the Joe!

On Saturday, March 12, 2011, Detroit Red Wings, Mike Modano, played in his 1,487th game, tying Wayne Gretzky for 15th on the NHL career list. The game was against the Blues in St. Louis and we were there :)
Congratulations to St. Louis Blues Right Winger Adam Cracknell, #79, on his first NHL goal. Cracknell scored in the 1st period during the game against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday, March 12, 2011. (Being sportmanship, I will not hold it against Cracknell for scoring against my beloved Red Wings. Besides, the Wings won the game 5-3.)
