I watched the players come out of the tunnel to the ice last Saturday and at the time I was surprised as it appeared as the first few guys, including the goalies, didn’t bother to hit the GO BLUE banner. 

I listened to the Red Berenson Show (recap or full audio) on Tuesday and heard Shawn Hunwick tell Ira and co-host John U. Bacon about touching it, and more specifically, how he touched it with his stick. 

I didn’t doubt him—he pitched a shutout in front of 113K, why lie?– but I went ahead and pored through my photos from Saturday.  Trust but verify says me.

Voila:

  1. I also noted that Hunwick, the shortest Wolverine, touched the banner with his stick. Good for him!
