Dylan Larkin on ‘the Joe’

The Buffalo News's Mike Harrington wrote a fine column about the Sabres and Red Wings' respective memories of Joe Louis Arena, and one Dylan Larkin still feels that the rink is special:

"It's my second year and almost every day I have to pinch myself I play here," said Red Wings center Dylan Larkin. "I look right across from my seat and I see Nick Lidstrom's and Steve Yzerman's faces and it says 'Stanley Cup champions'. Everywhere you look it's history and reminders of the great players that came before."

After Monday's game, there are just six games left before the building heads for the wrecking ball. It will close with a final weekend April 8 against Montreal and April 9 against New Jersey.

"I thought I had a lot of people coming my first year to want to come to a game to see me play," Larkin said. "This last month has been pretty crazy with people wanting to come to see the Joe. It's already hard to find tickets."

Harrington continues, mostly with Sabres memories of the Joe...

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
