Fans are encouraged to arrive early at Joe Louis Arena for a special playoff pre-game show. The show begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, followed by team warm-ups at 6:30 pm, and Game 1 of the Red Wings-Calgary series at 7 p.m.

Sunday's pre-game show begins at 12 p.m. with warm-ups at 12:30 p.m., and Game 2 at 1 p.m.

Coca-Cola Red Wings Red Zone: At each Red Wings home game, one special section will be designated the "Red Zone". If you didn't "Join The Red Wave" before coming to the game, we will help you get decked out in Red Wings gear. Everyone sitting in this section will receive free Red Wings items. Fans are asked to wear these items and "Join the Red Wave" in the arena.

Red Wings In-Arena Patrol: At every home game, Red Wings staff will be on the look out for you -- if you're not wearing red, you soon will be. The Patrol will circulate inside and outside Joe Louis Arena looking for people who need a little red. So watch for them!

Face Painting and Sign-Making Stations: We will set up stations inside and outside Joe Louis Arena and at the Hockeytown Cafe for fans to paint their faces prior to home games. All supplies are provided.
