The years that Babs, MacLean, Chelios, Lilja, Williams, and Filppula all played for the Wings are only 2006 and 2007. In 2006, Filppulla only played 4 games and none of them were against the Wild, so this photo is likely from 2007, assuming that everyone is properly identified.
The photo was taken at a home game, and we played Minnesota twice at the Joe in 2007. On December 22, and again on the 27th. Lilja did not play on the 27th, so my guess would be this photo is from December 22nd. (http://sports.yahoo....?gid=2006122205)
Chelios is not pegged as having any penalties, although Veilleux did get a roughing penalty in the second period (I don't know for sure if that is Veileux in the pic). The photo looks to be taken in the second period as well, as the defensman are closest to the camera, which is situated on the center ice side of the bench.
