Ducks Skate In The Barn

from the OC Register,

Unable to secure a convenient ice slot at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena, site of tonight’s game against the Red Wings, Coach Randy Carlyle arranged for the Ducks to practice at historic Windsor Arena, home of the Ontario Hockey League’s Windsor Spitfires.
Located just across the Detroit River, “the Barn,” as it is affectionately known, is the oldest rink in major-junior hockey, having opened in 1924 as the Border Cities Arena. The intimate building, with a seating capacity of 3,600, was home to the Red Wings, then known as the Cougars, while the former Olympia Stadium in Detroit was under construction during the 1926-27 NHL season.
“When you have an opportunity to visit the older, nostalgic rinks around Canada, I think it’s important to re-connect,” Carlyle said. “The building is part of the local history of Windsor and the hockey world.”
