Christina Marleau makes nap joke in honoring husband's streak

Christina Marleau

Christina Marleau knows better than anybody how hard it was for her husband, Patrick Marleau, to become the NHL's all-time leader in games played

She has been there every step of the way. She knows all about the hard work and dedication. She also knows her husband's love for naps. 

In congratulating her husband for his amazing accomplishment Monday night, Christina had to add a little humor at the end. 

"P.S. Do you keep playing because a game day is a guaranteed nap?" Christina wrote in a touching tweet.

All he needed was 1,768 naps to be the NHL's new Iron Man.
