Lidstrom became the first European defenseman and eighth overall to reach 1,000 points, assisting on two goals in Detroit's 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.
The Swedish star has 229 goals and 771 assists in 1,336 career games. He's also the fourth player with 1,000 points as a Red Wing, joining Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman and Alex Delvecchio.
"It felt great, especially doing it at home," Lidstrom said.
The Red Wings have gotten off to a sluggish start and are only 3-3. They were trounced 6-2 by the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.
"I thought we were tentative at the start, which I expected," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. "Anytime you get beat the way we got beat last game, confidence isn't huge and it took us a while to get playing. I thought we got some good goaltending early and then we got playing and just got better and stronger as the night went on."
Osgood talked about Lidstrom, a six-time Norris Trophy winner as the NHL's best defenseman.
"It's a huge accomplishment, 1,000 points, but he's done it over his whole career," Osgood said. "So it's something you can't really be surprised about. It's consistency over a long period of time."
"Tonight we didn't have the consistency shift after shift," Brown said.
Detroit scored twice in the second period to take a 2-1 lead.
Ericsson's second goal of the season tied it 3:34 into the period. He beat Quick with a wrist shot from the top of the left circle near the boards after Justin Abdelkader won a faceoff in the Kings' zone. It was Abdelkader's first career regular-season point. Holmstrom's power-play goal gave the Red Wings the lead 8:47 into the period. He tipped in Lidstrom's shot from the point.
Zetterberg made it 3-1, 3:24 into the third period. He deflected Lidstrom's slap pass past Quick.
"They capitalized on a their power-play and a couple of costly mistakes," Quick said. "You play a team like that, you've got to limit your mistakes."
Williams pulled Los Angeles within a goal with 8:03 left when he tipped Sean O'Donnell's slap shot from the point in off of Lidstrom.
Malby restored the two-goal lead with 5:17 left, slapping in a loose puck from the slot. Rafalski added an empty-net goal in the final minute.
Brown opened the scoring 5:41 into the game when he chipped in a loose puck from a goalmouth scramble for his first goal of the season.
