Miracle on ice

up; Ryan pulled on the "Zetterberg" Red Wings jersey he'd just received for his ninth birthday over his coat; and the two headed out the door. "We'll be back in forty-five minutes," Queen told his wife, Kirstin.

Queen took a photo of Ryan in front of a Red Wings ice sculpture as fans swarmed toward the entrance gates. That's when three guys in NHL coats approached. "Are you guys going into the game?" asked one. Learning they didn't have tickets, the NHL rep handed them a pair.

Ryan recalls the moment with a grin: "I said, 'It's a miracle!'"--and high-fived his dad. Queen says they were "great seats right off center ice in the middle of a bunch of Toronto fans." Even though he and Kirstin are Michigan State alums and huge Spartan fans, he says, "I love being here because of the university ... I think the stadium is great. It's always fun and festive, but at this game there were fanatics. It had the feel of a Super Bowl or World Series game."
