Another big night for hockey, at least locally

Last night was another big night for HOCKEY, at least around here.
The DETROIT RED WINGS beat the BUFFALO SABRES, 2-1, with the Sabres' lone goal coming from a player with local ties.
ZEMGUS GIRGENSONS scored a goal in his NHL debut.
It was big news locally. Girgensons, 19, played two seasons for the DUBUQUE FIGHTING SAINTS, a Tier-I junior team based here.
The Latvian-born player was selected in the first round of the 2012 NHL Draft.
I was able to watch on TV last night as Girgensons debuted for the Sabres, one of the youngest teams in the league.
It will be fun following his progress this season.
