Joe Sakic let Joel Quenneville know.
The Avalanche's veteran center wanted to be on the ice for the final seconds of Colorado s embarrassing 8-2 loss to Detroit in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals Thursday night.
Quenneville went along with it.
So when the final horn sounded, and the Red Wings had finished off the resounding sweep of the overmatched and ultimately injury-wracked Avalanche, it was entirely reasonable to speculate Sakic s gesture symbolized more than a captain going down with his ship.
It might have been Sakic's final NHL shift.
