it's a major award
Started from a Detroit news twitter account (https://twitter.com/#!/downwithdetroit)
Their source is XX Sports 1090 out of San Diego.
Rumor is that it's the Wings and Maple Leafs playing.
Hopefully this is true, too early to say now though.
NHL confirms 2013 Winter Classic will be at the Big House between the Red Wings and the Maple Leafs.
Source is XX1090AM in San Diego.
Detroit Sports Zone and others are attempting to verify.
@971theticketxyt just said various reports out about the Winter Classic at the Big House between the Wings and Leafs.
That could just be referring to everyone talking about it now though.
Sources tell me reports of winter classic in the big house are premature. No talks about event yet
That's the Michigan Daily senior editor and hockey writer.
Among NHL-insider circles, it is apparently a foregone conclusion that the 2013 Winter Classic will be hosted by Detroit.
The article linked here states that the NHL would love the opportunity to break 100k at the Big House, although hosting it there means sharing some of the revenue (and that isn't something in which Mike Illitch may be interested), so the event could still end up at Comerica Park.
Regardless of the final location, having the Red Wings host the Winter Classic can only be a good thing. They also mention a 'hockey celebration in Michigan' to go along with the GLI. Keep our fingers crossed for a Big House Winter Classic!
The chances for a U.S. medal at the world juniors are slim now, and Michigan-bound, Jacob Trouba, made a critical turnover that led to a late Czech goal. For all of you Red Wings fans, Czech goalie and Detroit signee, Petr Mrazek stopped over 50 shots and generally played out of his mind. Hopefully, the Wolverines can win at the Joe tonight.
Okay, Who all is going to the game tonight against FYS? We need to make this as much of a home game as possible for Michigan.
I got lower bowl seats and will be behind the net Michigan is shooting on for 2 periods. I think that's where the Alumni Band and Children of Yost will be.
Might go for the third place game too and boo tech.
