Live Blog - Alumni Showdown Style

The first Alumni Showdown game starts just after 1:00pm ET and the 2nd game is scheduled for 3:30pm.

FSD and CBC will be televising both games and NBCSN will broadcast the first game at 1:00pm and the 2nd game may be on tape delay starting at 4:00pm.

The Malik Report has the rosters for both games, both teams.

Enjoy and any players you are looking forward to seeing on the ice again?

All Leafs all the time in the coverage on NBCSN. It sucks. They talk over all the Detroit goals, basically ignoring them. I actually turned off the sound

What was the final score?  NBC web feed cut to commercial after Manny’s first save.  I didn’t see the rest.  NBC BLOWS!!

Just seeing Stevie Y and Vladdie in the Wings sweater once more, I turned into a babbling mess.

Glad I wasn’t the only one. After player intros I got all emotional, and a few tears streaked down my cheek. “WTF??”, I thought, so I text a few friends to get their reactions.

Phew, I was ‘normal’, seems like a lot of people were more emotional than they thought they would be when that game 2 lineup was shown.

Noticed how Shanny circled back to the bench at least once as to ask Stevie “Are you sure?” before taking the final shootout shot.

You know the entire bench was pushing him to go out there.

You know you’re a Red Wings fan for life when you heard the words “Fedorov from Redmond” and it brought a smile a mile-wide to your face.

If you’ve missed it or longing for proper highlights, awood has got you covered and well.  He remains unbelievably awesome.
