Ex-Plymouth goalie Bacashihua in the news

Jason Bacashihua grew up watching the Red Wings, going to school at Dearborn Heights Annapolis and later playing with the Ontario Hockey League's Plymouth Whalers.

Being on the ice Saturday night, and starring for the St. Louis Blues in the Red Wings' 3-2 victory was a thrill.

"It's definitely the most exciting game I've played in so far," said Bacashihua, who stopped 35 Wings shots, including several breakaways. "It's disappointing we came up eight seconds short. We tested Ozzie (Chris Osgood) for two periods there. But we just came up short."

Osgood has worked out with Bacashihua in the past, and wasn't surprised to see Bacashihua play as well as he did.

"He's a good goalie," Osgood said. "He's fast and agile. He's just been hurt this season. That set him back from playing in a lot of games."
