ESPN’s ‘Unrivaled Red Wings vs. Avalanche’ Trailer Released

Whoa, baby, now it’s a teaser!

We know there hasn’t been much to celebrate in the big four pro sports in Detroit lately, a city looking for its first playoff victory since April 2016.

But over the years there have been many glory days. The Bad Boys and Goin’ to Work Pistons. The Tigers races in 1968 and 1984 – even in 2006 and 2011-14.

The Lions; okay, there’s not much to work on there.

But in all the moments and rivalries this city has had, few if any compare to the mid-90s and early 2000s with the Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche.

The Red Wings are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their 1997 Stanley Cup title run and on Friday, a trailer for an ESPN E:60 documentary coming in June about the Western Conference powerhouse rivalry of the time aired on the network’s “The Point.” To display.

This sent social media into a frenzy.
