Postcards from the Classic: Alumni games

Took a quick lap around Comerica Park before the alumni game and got a couple minutes inside the Red Wings dressing room. It was great to see a stall set up for Steve Yzerman, playing in the second alumni game, and Mathieu Schneider chatting it up with Nicklas Lidstrom before the game. But perhaps the best part was seeing some of the sweaters of a few of the Russian Red Wings greats lined up side by side in the dressing room, waiting for the reunion. Slava Kozlov, Igor Larionov and Sergei Fedorov had their own corner of the locker room. Just seeing their sweaters hanging amps up the anticipation of the passing to come in the second alumni game.
