CHICAGO (AP) When Joe Serpico closes his eyes Eric Staal Jersey , he can go right back to that day in 1961.Serpico’s big Italian family gathered for cake and coffee for his 10th birthday. On a table full of presents, there was one unwrapped Wieboldt’s department store box from uncle Jerry ”The Barber” Del Giudice – a pair of game-worn jerseys from Chicago Blackhawks stars Bobby Hull and Glenn Hall – a moment of pure joy that stayed with Serpico forever.”I knew their birthdays, I knew these guys, this was my whole life, was hockey,” he said, ”and at 10 years old to get a gift coming from the two of them was phenomenal.”Serpico, born and raised in Chicago, grew up, got married and had five children with his wife Linda, four girls and one boy. The jerseys went along for the ride, tucked away for safe keeping. But that changes this weekend, when bidding on the signed Hull jersey comes to an end as part of Heritage Auctions’ Platinum Night Auction.Serpico Womens Jared Spurgeon Jersey , 66, wore the Hull jersey when he touched the Stanley Cup a couple years ago – a surprise present from one of his daughters – and something changed.”That was on my bucket list,” he said, ”and I feel like, maybe I could share it with somebody else. I hope it ends up in the right hands. I don’t know. … I’m having a hard time letting it go.”Serpico’s uncle was a colorful character who served as the team barber for decades, becoming friendly with Hull, Hall and several other players. He went to the old Chicago Stadium to cut their hair on Wednesdays, or they would come to one of the family barbershops on the weekend on occasion, creating lines of kids looking for autographs that ran around the block, according to Serpico.Hull and Hall were packing up after the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 1961 when Del Guidice mentioned Serpico’s birthday was coming up.”He was down there and he said `Hey, you know in a couple weeks is Joey’s birthday. It’d be nice if I brought him something,’ and Bobby and Glenn threw him a jersey,” Serpico said. ”That’s the story that was given to me.”Hull was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1983 Jason Zucker Jersey , and there is a statue of him outside of the United Center in Chicago. The high-scoring forward played 15 of his 23 seasons with the Blackhawks, but Chris Ivy, the director of the sports category for Heritage, said game-worn Hull jerseys from his Chicago days are ”pretty scarce.””I’d say there’s only a handful of them known in the hobby,” he said. ”Now there is some from his other teams. There’s some from the Jets and from Hartford. But the Blackhawks jerseys, there’s not a whole lot.”Heritage analyzed Serpico’s jersey – looking at the numbers, the fonts and other parts of the sweater – and determined it’s from the 1958-59 season, Hull’s second year in the league.”This may be one where his uncle asked either Hull or the equipment manager, you know, Hull said `Hey, I want to give a jersey away to my buddy. Do you have an old one laying around?”’ Ivy said, ”and I suspect that’s how they got a jersey in ’61 that had actually been used a couple years previous.”Decades after Serpico got the jerseys from his beloved uncle, he got each of them signed.Hall asked Serpico to try on his No. 1 sweater one last time Joel Eriksson Ek Jersey , and the Hall of Fame goaltender later sent Serpico a hand-written letter thanking him for being a fan. Hull’s No. 9 was retired by the Blackhawks – like Hall and No. 1 – but the jersey up for auction is No. 16, which Hull wore for a short time at the beginning of his career. And Hull was impressed by Serpico’s knowledge of the numbers from his career.”Bobby looked at me and he started laughing. He’s like `OK, so you do remember a lot of the history,”’ Serpico said.Del Guidice died a few years ago at age 81, and Serpico said he wishes his uncle was still around to share his own stories. Serpico’s family lived in the same Chicago neighborhood when he was growing up, and his uncle served as his godfather for confirmation and a consistent resource in his life.While the Hull jersey is heading for another home – ”I don’t even know if I’ve done the right thing about it,” Serpico said – Hall’s sweater is staying put. Probably forever.”My son’s comment … if he was here, he’d tell you `My dad’s going to be buried in that jersey and only that jersey,”’ a chuckling Serpico said.—Online:Heritage Auctions:—Jay Cohen can be reached at GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Montreal Canadiens scored twice within two minutes of the third period to turn a 3-0 deficit into a one-goal game, and Arizona Coyotes goalie Antti Raanta wasn’t happy.He shouted at his teammates on the bench during a break in the action, and the Coyotes responded. They scored two goals and finished off a 5-2 win over the Canadiens Thursday night.”Hopefully I don’t need to do that anymore,” Raanta said. ”Great to get the win but also learn from those mistakes.”Article continues below ...Raanta could laugh about it after the game Authentic Marcus Johansson Jersey , but coach Rick Tocchet and his staff were happy to see some fire from their No. 1 goaltender.”That woke our team up. I love that,” Tocchet said.Brendan Perlini scored twice in a 19-second span in the second period, and the Coyotes got their third straight win and fourth in five games.Perlini scored his first two goals since a four-game streak from Jan. 18-25. Tobias Rieder had a goal and assist in the third period to help the Coyotes hold off Montreal.”We’re just trying to get better every day. Last few games have been good for us but we still have a lot to learn and a lot to prove,” Perlini said.Clayton Keller had a goal and three assists, and Raanta made 34 saves for the Coyotes. They have earned points in five straight games.The Canadiens, on the second night of a back-to-back after playing at Colorado on Wednesday, lost their fourth straight. Brendan Gallagher scored his team-leading 21st goal of the season.Gallagher and Daniel Carr scored less than two minutes apart in the third to cut the Coyotes’ lead to 3-2. Carr stuffed in the puck right after Arizona’s Max Domi miraculously stopped a shot by reaching his stick across the goal mouth and knocking it away.Rieder’s power-play goal at 10:46 gave the Coyotes a key insurance goal. Then, Josh Archibald’s backhander with 3:59 to play made it 5-2.Keller’s pass from behind the net found Perlini for Perlini’s first goal 57 seconds into the second, and he got an assist on Perlini’s breakaway goal at 1:16.Oliver Ekman-Larsson also had three assists, the second one being the pass ahead to Perlini for his second goal of the night and 16th of the season.Carey Price had 16 stops for Montreal.Keller’s third goal in five games gave the Coyotes a 1-0 lead at 13:56 of the first period. After a boarding penalty to Montreal’s Max Pacioretty gave the Coyotes a power play, Keller took a pass from Ekman-Larsson and had plenty of time to load up a wrist shot that zipped past Price.Keller had hit the goal post with a shot moments before. He registered his team-leading 17th goal of the season and set a career high with a four-point game.”Good power play. Just getting shots early there leads to passing lanes,” Keller said.Raanta’s best save of the night came just over five minutes into the game. He reached far to his left for a glove save on Nikita Scherbak’s shot that was headed for the net.”When you feel good, sometimes you can make that kind of save Michael Hutchinson Jersey Womens ,” Raanta said. ”Need a little bit of luck also to get the puck straight to your paw.”The Canadiens outshot the Coyotes 36-21 but couldn’t solve Raanta for the first two periods. A slashing penalty gave Montreal a power play early in the third, and Gallagher put in a rebound at 5:46, making the score 3-1.”Can’t dig yourselves holes, especially on the road,” Gallagher said. ”That’s what cost us.”NOTES: The Coyotes opened a seven-game homestand Thursday, which will be their longest of the season. … F Richard Panik was a healthy scratch. He’d been a top-line player, but has not scored a point in his last eight games. … Jacob de la Rose and Carr were in the lineup for Montreal, replacing healthy scratches Nicolas Deslauriers and Byron Froese. … A moment of silence for the victims of the school shooting in Florida was observed.UP NEXTCanadiens: At Vegas on Saturday night.Coyotes: Host Edmonton on Saturday.
