Video: Devils honor Elias; Eric Staal celebrates 1,000th game with Jordan

Yuck, there have been a lot of negative hockey headlines lately. From Brad Marchand‘s spear (and the flame-war that might inspire) to the NHL skipping the 2018 Winter Olympics (and the gross lockout talk that emerges), hockey fans might be feeling a little down.

If that doesn’t lift your spirits, behold Eric Staal being congratulated for his 1,000th game by his brother Jordan Staal:

Ah, that’s a little better. (Turns out that Wild game was quite the generator of good feelings.)
