Former Detroit Red Wings forward Darren McCarty sat down with Dave Strader on NHL Live to discuss his anticipation of playing in the 2013 Maple Leafs-Red Wings Alumni Showdown.

"I remember the first night coming down here when the lights were all on," McCarty said, "and you're standing in the middle of Detroit in Comerica Park and you're looking out … just to see the atmosphere and imagine what it's like when it's filled for one of those World Series baseball games, it's going to be amazing just to see the people and the energy in there. They've done a great job with this."
