Mikko Koivu had the shootout winner in his 1000th game and his teammates absolutely loved it


  • There was no better way for Mikko Koivu to celebrate his 1,000th game in the NHL than with a win, and he willed it into existence himself with the shootout winner to beat the Stars on Sunday.
  • The bench reaction to his winner was incredible, and his teammates celebrated with some good old “Danza Kuduro” in the locker room.

  • Koivu notched his 700th career point to boot, with an assist in the second period.
  • He was going for all of the milestones!

  • Hilariously, Koivu almost didn’t factor into the shootout at all, until Bruce Boudreau relented on his big day.
