...that is what the headline read in today's Detroit Free Press Sports
page. Tonight the 'Wing campers take on the 1993 SC Champion campers
at Joe Louis Arena. The game is an exhibition opener for both teams.
I don't have line-ups for Montreal (does anybody?), but the Detroit
players slated for the game are (according to the newspaper):
Forward: Dallas Drake, Sergei Fedorov, Greg Johnson, Sheldon Kennedy,
Slava Kozlov, Martin Lapointe, Darren McCarty, Keith Primeau,
Bob Probert, Ray Sheppard, Mike Sillinger, and Tim Taylor.
Defense: Steve Chiasson, Mark Howe, Vlad Konstantinov,
Nicklas Lidstrom, Yves Racine, and Aaron Ward.
Goalies: Peter Ing and Chris Osgood.
Injured: Steve Yzerman (sore wrist) and Shawn Burr (stiff neck)
To see Howe in the line-up is a good sign that his back's in good shape.
In the training camp workouts, he was skating like a 20 year old...
Should be a fun game for all...Hopefully, Demers and his team will get
a warm reception in what Jacques calls "my second home."
