Great pics! Those years with DMac, Drapes, Maltbs in their prime may have been the best years to be a Wings fan, and best years to go to a game! Someone from the 50's may not think so, but the team we had from 96-02 = Awesome!
For the younger Wings fans, now's great too, but there was just something about that team.
Hey, I got back from the game about an hour ago. The arena was about 1/3 empty! Ive never seen so many empty seats at The Joe. I checked the box score and the paid attendance was 18,177, but I wouldn't be surprised if 14,000 showed up. I didn't mind, the concessions lines were fast, it only took a couple minutes to get a hot dog and it was easy to move down to better seats.
Great bounce back game by Ozzie. Nice second goal by Datsyuk, only Dats could score that goal!
I should add, nice goal by Homer too. Classic Holmstrom! I had my Holmstrom jersey on and when he scored I was pointing to his name on the back of it, and stood up to point at it again when his name was announced over the PA. Fun times!
