"Mike Modano Is America's Greatest Scorer!"

I thought that was Wilt Chamberlain. Hi-yo. Regardless, in case you missed it, here's Mike Modano last night scoring points 1,232 and 1,233 against the San Jose Sharks, breaking Phil Housley's record for most points raked up by a U.S.-born pro hockey player. Notes Deadspin this morning, "Wayne Gretzky finished with 2,857 points, but that doesn't make Modano's record any less special. It's still really, really good." Really? --Robert Wilonsky
