penguin chick pictureHI EVERYBODY!!

Penguins and humans have a lot in common. We both like to play in the cold and slide around on ice. Penguins call it fun, you call it hockey! Angie and Phil made a trek to "Hockeytown" to see the Detroit RedWings play the Chicago BlackHawks at The Joe Lewis Arena. It looks like everyone but the BlackHawks had fun!

See you later!

The Detroit RedWings (originally called the Cougars, entering the NHL in 1927, became the RedWings in 1932) and the Chicago BlackHawks (entering the NHL in 1926) are two of the original 6 NHL teams (name changes notwithstanding,) and is one of the oldest rivalries in hockey. The quest for Lord Stanley 's Cup has fans traversing I-94 between Detroit and Chicago for years to see their teams battle on the rink.
