Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Adrian Dater of Sports Illustrated,
Can you picture this?
It’s 25 degrees outside on an early January night and the Detroit Red Wings are taking to the ice against the Colorado Avalanche under the silhouette of the Rocky Mountains. More than 76,000 fans are packed inside Sports Authority Field in Denver, including—brace yourselves—TIM TEBOW.
One of the greatest rivalries in sports history—not just the NHL—is revived for one day at least. And in case the current Avs and Wings wouldn’t be enough of an attraction, there is the alumni game to consider. Are you saying you wouldn’t tune in to see Claude Lemieux and Darren McCarty face off one more time? Or Patrick Roy against Mike Vernon? Adam Foote against Brendan Shanahan? Joe Sakic and Peter Forsberg against Steve Yzerman and Sergei Fedorov?
