Detroit Red Wings -vs- Chicago Blackhawks


@ Wrigley Field



The two teams will wear vintage-style uniforms, using the current Reebok Edge equipment and material. The Red Wings with a version of the sweaters worn by the Detroit Cougars in their first season, but with their familiar "Wheeled Wing" logo on the shoulders, and the Blackhawks wearing a sweater comprised of a mix of their 1936-37 sweaters and their 1937-38 sweaters, with the design of the sweater from the 1936-37 season and the chest crest from the 1937-38 sweaters. In conjunction with this, Reebok will stage a contest where one of the players will not be wearing a Reebok vector logo during the third period, and those at the game or those watching on TV in the USA could win a prize package including a trip to a Stanley Cup Finals game and a personal visit to see the trophy.

I'll probably be watching for the hell of it. The outdoor games always have a cool vibe for it. I believe Bob Costas is doing a bunch of intermission specials as well.

convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

It drums up a lot of interest in the US, and last year's game was great - snow, a shootout - and with two very good teams, it should be an entertaining match. I'll be watching it.

Kinda surreal seeing a rink on that field.
