March 26th, 1997

The Detroit Red Wings and the Colorado Avalanche met at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, MI for a regular season game. This game turned into a classic when it erupted into a brawl that even involved two hall of fame goaltenders. The focal point of this battle, however, was the retribution given to Claude Lemieux by Darren McCarty for Lemieux's cheap shot on Kris Draper in game 6 of the Western Conference Finals in 1996.

It is thought that this night bonded the Red Wings together enough for their run to the Stanley Cup in 1997, their first since 1955.

It was a momentous night in Hockeytown.
