A Matinee Game

11/05/2022 at 12:00pm EDT

Good afternoon to you all. Today’s matinee game will feature the celebration of the Red Wings1998 Stanley Cup team. While it’s been really nice to look back and remember how good things were, it’s time to move forward and make this team better, or, at least better in the near future.

The fans in Detroit are hoping the Wings can close out the celebrations with another win, and it won’t be easy. The Islanders are coming in riding a five game winning streak. As we like to say around here, “let’s hope for the best.”

Pre game festivities will air on Bally Sports Detroit at 12:00 PM.

Today it’s the Islanders vs the Wings. The puck drops at 1:00 PM and will be broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit and the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit). Also on NHLPP/ESPN+, MSGSN, and SN(Sportsnet.ca)

It’s a Live Blog!
