Bowman to coach in Winter Classic alumni matchup

DETROIT (AP) - Scotty Bowman is one of four coaches set to participate in the alumni matchup in conjunction with the Winter Classic.

Bowman and Barry Smith will represent the Detroit Red Wings against former Toronto Maple Leafs coaches Red Kelly and Pat Quinn on Dec. 31 at Comerica Park in Detroit.

The following day, the current Red Wings and Maple Leafs are scheduled to play at Ann Arbor's Michigan Stadium.

Bowman has been part of 12 Stanley Cup-winning teams, including nine as a head coach.

Kelly played on eight Stanley Cup championship teams, four with Detroit and four with Toronto.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
