ESPN’s ‘Unrivaled Red Wings vs. Avalanche’ trailer released

Whoa, baby, now that’s a teaser!

We know there hasn’t been much to celebrate in Detroit’s four major professional sports lately, a town searching for its first playoff victory since April 2016.

But throughout the years there have been plenty of glory days. The Bad Boys and Goin’ to Work Pistons. The Tigers’ runs in 1968 and 1984 — even in 2006 and 2011-14. 

The Lions; alright there’s not much to work with there.

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

The Red Wings are in the 25th anniversary from their 1997 Stanley Cup title run and on Friday, a trailer for an ESPN E:60 documentary coming this June on the rivalry between the then-Western Conference powers was released on the network’s “The Point” show.

This set social media into a tizzy.
