The Detroit Red Wings quest for a sixth consecutive road win tonight in Carolina is important to Detroit fans. But seems less important than the San Jose Hockey Now story about how former Sharks player Tony Hrkac saved a life in the San Jose press box
TMZ originally broke the story of Hrkac, 57, performing a Heimlich maneuver to save an NHL employee who was choking on a pretzel in the San Jose Sharks press box on Jan. 4. The person resumed normal breathing after a piece of pretzel was ejected by the Heimlich.
Hrkac was an original Sharks player, and has been with the Lightning since 2015.

Red Wings In Case You Missed It
- Don’t look now, but the Detroit Red Wings are in third place in the Atlantic Division.
- Alex Lyon is the key to Detroit’s improved defensive play. It’s a chicken and egg situation.
- Suddenly, the Red Wings are winning road games. Defenseman Moritz Seider is certainly an important contributor to the team’s road improvement.
- Kris Draper still makes his living in hockey, but has found another sport that he enjoys/
