Red Wings Tickets
Red Wings tickets for one of the most well known NHL hockey teams in the league are on sale today. After a strike shortened 2012-2013 season, hockey fans will get the opportunity to see their team try their best to get back to the playoffs once again in 2015. The Atlantic Division is one of the toughest in the league, and the Red Wings are poised to take the top spot once again. Detroit Red Wings tickets for home and away games are always in demand.
Detroit finished on a high note during the strike shortened season, and their 24-16 overall record got them into the playoffs. Sadly, they had an uphill climb from the start. Detroit defeated the Anaheim Ducks to advance to the Western Conference Semifinals. Sadly the Chicago Blackhawks stopped the Red Wings from advancing any further.
Joe Lewis Arena is the place to see the Red Wings in action. Over the past 34 seasons, Detroit’s home ice has been at 19 Steve Yzerman Drive. When set for hockey, over 20,000 fans can fit into the venue. In that time, the Stanley Cup has gone Detroit’s way four times. Since its opening in 1979, the venue has been updated four times. The last major upgrade added over 80 skybox suites, and a private seating area in one of the corners of the arena. The City of Detroit is hoping to move the team to a new venue, but they have no plans to move out of state. You will find the Red Wings in the downtown area, no matter how long it takes to build the new venue.
