Scoring for a song
Not sure who scored that last Red Wings goal?
Just wait for the music.
For example, the old cowboy song "Mule Train" could only mean burly forward Johan "Mule" Franzen is your guy.
specific goal songs have been a staple at Joe Louis Arena since T. Campbell took over as the team DJ 15 years ago. "I think it gives a lot of flavor to the Wings and gives them character and personality," Campbell said.
In two years with Detroit, Darren Helm has scored five times in 34 playoff games, but doesn't have a goal in 23 games in the regular season.
Of the 20 players who dressed for Detroit in last year's Finals, 18 have returned.
The Red Wings own home-ice advantage for the 20th consecutive series. Last time they didn't have it was in the second round against Colorado in 2000.
