"We were getting our butts kicked early on,” Maltby said.  “I wasn’t too sure we were going to get to the seventh inning.”

The Wings also had a chance to sign autographs for fans and even handed-over their game-worn jerseys to a few special raffle winners.

All proceeds from the event benefited the Detroit Red Wings Foundation and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
