It was an emotional night in Anaheim, where Teemu Selanne played his final regular-season game as a member of the Anaheim Ducks in a 3-2 overtime victory over the Colorado Avalanche. Though Nick Bonino scored the winner, Selanne was named all three stars in the victory, which is garbage, in my opinion. They should have made an allowance to name him even more stars.

(I kid. Selanne got the tribute he deserved in front of the Anaheim fans.)

But he wasn't the only one likely playing in his final regular-season game. So too was Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who backstopped the Anaheim Ducks to the Stanley Cup in 2006-07. In an incredible, moving moment, Selanne opted to share the stage with his former teammate, now the Avalanche backup, and the two skated a victory lap together in front of the Honda Center faithful.

I'm not crying. You're crying.

Giguere had yet to make a formal statement on the future of his career prior to puck drop, but when asked if this was it for him in the regular-season, he responded, "Well I have flown in my family for the game."

Presumably, he didn't do that just to see Teemu off. (Although maybe he did. Teemu is special.)

After the game, he suggested the postseason would be followed by the post-career:

If Giguere does retire as expected, the league won't just be losing a great goaltender and person. They'll also be losing the last active former member of the Hartford Whalers.
