Sergei Fedorov answered the boos.
His goal in the third extra round of the shootout gave the Columbus Blue Jackets a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL on Thursday.
Fedorov, a member of the Red Wings from 1990-2003, is booed by Detroit fans every time he touches the puck each time he plays in Detroit.
"After the game it's sad, before the game it's exciting. It's not an easy building for me to play personally," said Fedorov, whose 400 goals for the Red Wings put him behind only Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman and Alex Delvecchio in franchise history. "I'm just happy we battled hard and got two points."
He beat goalie Chris Osgood on a wrist shot over the pads for the shootout winner, reports AP.
"In the business of sports, when you get booed, that means you're a good player," Blue Jackets coach Ken Hitchcock said. "I've seen (Todd) Bertuzzi get booed, I've seen Yzerman get booed like crazy in Dallas, (Chris) Chelios gets booed everyplace. Good players get booed."
