The excitement is building to go to the Red Wings game early in the day.
Finally arriving at the Joe Louis Arena. Lots of people taking pictures because it's the farewell season to the arena. A new arena is being built.
Just before the US National Anthem the guys are practicing. You can feel the crowds anticipation in the arena and everyone is ready to cheer on the Wings. Well almost everyone some are not fan of the Wings and are cheering for the New York Island Rangers.
The US National Anthem was just sung and the crowd has gone wild when it ended. Everyone stood up and hats and hands were placed over their hearts to show their love for the country.
Cheering on the Red Wings!
He shoots! But misses the goal. Lots of people booing because they did not score.
I am still cheering on the Red Wings and at them directly using their twitter hoping to get a retweet.
He shoots! Misses again! The crowd is growing more restless because no one has scored yet.
New Your Rangers player Steven Kampfer was given a penalty for tripping. Power play for Red Wings but wait the Rangers shoot and they score! Crowd is angry now.
Second Period begins! Crowd is making noise to cheer on the Wings.
Frans Nielsen shoots and scores!
Power play is in effect. He shoots and scores! The fans in the arena are going crazy. Score is now a tie.
Lots of skating back and forth on the ice from when they scored until the end of the period. On to the third period of the game. Red Wings keep shooting but missing every shot.
