Home with a goal

Defenseman Brett Lebda grew up in Buffalo Grove, just outside of Chicago. His return to Wrigley Field included a goal.

"I don't go to many (White) Sox games," said Lebda. "I love the Cubs, grew up on the Cubs and still go to a lot of games during the summer."

For Lebda, yesterday's game was like a moment from the movie "Field Of Dreams", crossing over the line between fan and player at a ballpark.

"Just coming out of that dugout and seeing the sight, it was pretty cool," said Lebda. "You're usually on the other side of the fence there sitting in the stands. And just to be out there and playing in a hockey game in Wrigley Field was a pretty neat experience."
