Is anyone going? Plymouth is approx. half hour from Detroit. I really really want to go, but won't have a car (can't afford to rent either). Would greatly appreciate a ride as I'd love to get to shoot some of the USA kids on both teams.

There are both some already drafted top prospects and some who will go early in the upcoming draft between the two teams and it is a game 4 (Windsor is currently up by 1 game) so it should be good hockey.

Pretty please (and if it isn't obvious - I would not be inflicting my presence on you at the game, just need the ride)!!!

Melissa,

I am a UAH Charger player (86-90) and now live in the Windsor area and am a Spitfires season ticket holder. While I am a loyal college hockey fan, with the Spits and Major Junior hockey in my backyard my boys and I love to go to the games. not sure when you are getting into Detroit area, but its too bad that you can`t get to one of the games in this series in Windsor. The rink in Windsor is actually probably closer to downtown Detroit that the Compuware rink in Plymouth. The Windsor rink is 1 year old and essentially a mini-NHL rink with all the ammenities you would see at a new NHL facility. The Spits also sell out almost every home game, and with the rivalry with the Whalers, the Windsor rink will be packed and raucous. Game one was a great game with a sellout in Windsor, lots of action and a couple of good tilts! Not only do you have what is predicted to be 1 and 2 NHL draft picks but also another top 5 in Fowler and a couple more first rounders as well. I note that Game 5 (in Windsor) and Game 6 (in Plymouth) conflict with NCAA final four, but if you are in town this monday you should try to get across the border and to the game in Windsor. If there is a game 7 and you are in town next Monday, you should try to get to that game in Windsor. Again, great atmosphere here and the Plymouth rink rarely fills up. Although there will most certainly be lots of Spits fans heading over the river to Plymouth!

Paul.

hmm, the three top prospects in the draft (Hall, Seguin, Fowler) and another night of playoff hockey...that actually makes me regret not being there this year.

I get in super early on Wednesday in order to shoot the practices and I leave early on Sunday so Wednesday night's game is my only chance.

Come on, someone who will be in Detroit with a car on Wednesday has to want to go! Pretty please - I swear I won't sing along to your car radio and cause you to have an accident!!

Help!!
