Bruins head to Motown to skate with the Red Wings

The Bruins are in Detroit to take on the Red Wings tonight at Joe Louis Arena. The perennial powerhouse Detroit Red Wings have looked rather mediocre this season and are off to a 5-4-3 start. As if living in Detroit wasn't bad enough, now the Red Wings aren't even that good. Hey, at least they still have a thriving automobile industry, Tiger Stadium, an NFL caliber football team,abandoned skyscrapers and Insane Clown Posse.
