Red Wings add 4 from 'Russian 5' to alumni day

DETROIT (AP) - Four players from Detroit's "Russian Five" will be on hand when Red Wings alumni take on alumni from the Toronto Maple Leafs the day before the Winter Classic.

Viacheslav Fetisov, Igor Larionov, Vladimir Konstantinov and Sergei Fedorov will participate in the festivities Dec. 31 at Comerica Park in Detroit. The next day, the current Red Wings and Maple Leafs are scheduled to play at Michigan Stadium.

Gary Leeman, Russ Courtnall, Bill Derlago, Bob McGill, Vincent Damphousse and Dave Ellett are joining the alumni day representing the Maple Leafs.

Quote of the Day

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
