Scotty Bowman among 4 coaches set for Winter Classic alumni matchup

DETROIT - 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

I think that’s the sign of a good team. When you don’t play well, and you don’t stay focused and you don’t do the intangibles that it takes, you still win the hockey game.
