Fox Sports Detroit rolling out classic Detroit Red Wings, Tigers, Pistons games in April | Freep

But the DVR-worthy games begin at 8 p.m. April 6, when FSD will show Game 1 of the 1997 Stanley Cup final, when the Wings visited Philadelphia.

Game 2 of that series will be shown at 8 p.m. April 9 and Game 3, played at Joe Louis Arena, at 8 p.m. April 12.

What about Game 4? That was kind of a big one.

Regardless... it’s almost April in the D again!

McDavid says NHL ‘can’t just step into the playoffs’ | TSN

“I don’t think we can just step into the playoffs,” McDavid said in a video conference call with three other Pacific Division players on Friday. “Game 1, it’s Calgary coming to Edmonton and guys are running around trying to kill each other that haven’t played for two months.

“It’ll end up the [AHL] Stockton Heat versus the Bakersfield Condors if that’s the case. We want to keep the guys healthy. A fair season is a full season. If we can do that, that’s what we’d obviously prefer.”

IF the NHL resumes play, I don’t see how the league can truly justify not starting back up immediately with the playoffs.
