Celebrating history, retro games, and the big top rolling in

The Wings will celebrate the 1997 Stanley Cup Championship during Thursday’s 7pm game but you’ll want to be in your seats by 6pm to catch the special celebration. Then on Saturday there will be a celebration for the 1998 Stanley Cup Championship. The game is at 1pm, but you’ll want to be seated by noon for the special event. More than 30 players, coaches and staff from that time are coming back to Detroit for the festivities. Commemorative merchandise will be available in the team store. If you can’t make the games, there’s a new exhibit featuring the stories of the 1997 Red Wings opening Saturday November 5 at the Detroit Historical Museum in Midtown.
