All I can say is WOW! Congratulations Patty!! :yea::beerbang::cheers::w00t::gd::clap2::boogie::devil::hail:

I will be at the hospital doing a shift (in Newark of all places) and will miss the game, but I hope he has a monster game and gets first star, game winning goal, hat trick, etc! :)

Yeah I hope he gets a standing ovation at some point in the game regardless of the outcome. We all know he deserves it.

I really wish I could be there. I'll be on an airplane home and miss the game entirely :(

CONGRATULATIONS to Patty, easily one of my top 3 favorite Devils of all time... his number is cemented in our history, and will be in the rafters in due time.

But he's still got some good years left. He's due for a goal or two right. How perfect would it be...

Regardless, long live #26

Ill be there tomorrow as well. Hes a beast and I think underrated.

I agree his 26 will be in the rafters along 4, 3, 27, and eventually 30 in due time. For now keep playing a beast Patty!

I think he's the 3rd player to log 1000 games with NJ (Daneyko, Brodeur) so Congrats !

Turning 36 in April I feel he'll play just 2 more seasons after this one, ending in spring of 2014.

Seems unlikely he'll play at age 38 in 14-15.

I know it is hard to compare since the Devils have a much longer history with great players and have accomplished a lot more as an organization, but when Daniel Alfredsson played in his 1000th game a while back, the Senators really made it a special evening for him and the fans. Hope the Devils honour him before the game with something, and the crowd gives him a very long standing ovation.

1000 games with one team in this day and age is very special.

I don't know, the way that DeBoer was talking about him playing so well and looking so young... Of course, that was part of an interview specifically about his thousandth game. That and those of us who are older know first hand that when you're youth goes it tends to leave you in a hurry. *sigh*

But yea, he's the third Devil to reach 1000 games, after Daneyko and Brodeur. Pretty amazing when you think about it.

I'm going to guess they will mention something during the game but save a ceremony for after the road trip.

I loved being at the 552 game and him coming out in that cap. I have always fealt Patty had another gear that he seems to just be able to turn on at special moments like last night. I think Deboer said it right on the pregame talking about how intelligent Patty is, you can just see his hockey sense when he plays on the 1k line, they may be older and less athletic but they just have great hockey sense.
