When Ted Lindsay Fought, Everybody Won
Before Game 3 of the 1956 NHL semifinals between Detroit and Toronto, an unhinged Maple Leafs fan phoned the hotel the Red Wings were staying at to inform whoever would listen that if Ted Lindsay and Gordie Howe took the ice, they’d be shot on sight. Undeterred by the threat, each man laced them up. Howe scored a crucial second-period goal to get the Red Wings back in the game, and Lindsay scored to tie things up late in the third and then scored the winner in overtime.— Sen. Peter J. Lucido (@SenPeterJLucido)
RIP, Ted Lindsay.
The hockey world has lost one of its greatest players and leaders - both on and off the ice.

So Sorry to hear about the passing of Ted Lindsay. He was a Giant for our game as player, GM, Coach and even bigger for how he stood up for what was Right. We are all indebted to him for his contributions to the NHL.— Marc Crawford (@CroMarcCrawford) .Lindsay
Even the man responsible for the Stanley Cup posted. The concept of raising the Cup began with Lindsay:
The hockey world loses one of it's finest!— Philip Pritchard (@keeperofthecup) member and 4 x time champion, Ted Lindsay...will be remembered for everything he did for the great game of hockey. Not very many in the game have a trophy named in your name.
And here's a look at how hockey writers and journalists shared their thoughts on Lindsay:
I was so lucky to know him. To work on a book with him. To hear his stories and listen to his wisdom. I miss the days when he would show up, unannounced, to my JLA office. I will always cherish the memories of his friendship and everything that he stood for. RIP, Ted Lindsay.— Wheel Deal (@Bill_Roose)
I'm crushed to learn this morning of the passing oficon Ted Lindsay. My awe for Ted grew every time we sat to talk, a man who took no prisoners in a game he loved with every breath in his body. I'll have an appreciation coming to today.

So sad to hear of Ted Lindsay’s passing. This is the last time I saw him at Joe Louis Arena. He’ll be remembered for many things but I’ll remember “Terrible Ted” most for how much of a gentleman he was & how much he adored his wife Joanne. They are together again. ????— Christine Simpson (@SNChrisSimpson)
Ted Lindsay was a true hero to me. I never saw him play live, but I saw him live life. And if we all lived like that this world would be a far better place. What an incredible man! I love you Mr. Lindsay! You will never be forgotten.— Trevor Thompson (@iamtrevort)

Ted Lindsay has passed at 93. Outstanding player, NHLPA founder but my fav memory was how he boycotted his own HHoF in '66 induction because wives and families were not allowed to attend. The rule changed after that. RIP.— Jeff Marek (@JeffMarek)
