Brett Hull let only his familiar grin show what his latest milestone meant to him.
Hull tied Dave Andreychuk's NHL record with his 263rd career power-play goal and Kris Draper scored twice to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-2
victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday night.
I was sitting beside him when he came off, and I said, 'Did you realize that?' and he just kind of gave me the Brett Hull smile," Draper said. "It
was in typical fashion, too, with his one-timer."
Hull, who has 737 goals in 18 seasons, moved past Marcel Dionne for third on the NHL career list with his 732nd on Dec. 8. He trails only former Red
Wings great Gordie Howe (801) and Wayne Gretzky (894).
