Sports buffs, as well as mavens of documentary films, lined up at The Fillmore Detroit — a short walk from the Red Wings' new home at Little Caesars Arena — to view the world premiere of “The Russian Five,” a feature-length film about a quintet of Soviet emigres who, from 1990 to 2003, dotted the Red Wings’ roster to blend speed, finesse, muscle and uncanny synchrony like hockey fans had never seen.
