Red Wings celebrate 50th consecutive sellout
DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings are set to skate in front of a capacity crowd (20,066) at Joe Louis Arena for the 50th straight game later tonight when the Columbus Blue Jackets pay a visit to the Motor City for a 7:00 p.m. showdown with the reigning Central Division champs. Detroit has amassed a 31-12-6 record on home ice during the team’s run of consecutive sellouts, a mark which includes an active 15-game winning streak – the best in franchise history. Tonight’s game will feature the one-millionth arena patron to pass through the gates at The Joe since the sellout streak began on December 19, 2010.

A special video presentation thanking the citizens of Hockeytown for their continued support will be shown during this evening’s contest, with face painters and an old-time-hockey organist set to be on hand for the proceedings as part of the season-long Meijer Kids Night promotion. Furthermore, the first 2,500 children aged 12 and under in attendance for tonight’s game will receive a free Jonathan Ericsson growth poster courtesy of Meijer and the Red Wings.
