by Rick Bowness / Detroit Red Wings
DETROIT -- Red Wings' season ticket holders will be receiving a very special delivery this week, as for the 20th consecutive year the team will be distributing playoff packages throughout the dominion of Hockeytown. To commemorate the Red Wings’ incredible two-decade-long playoff-appearance streak, this year’s collectible post-season ticket packages are brandished with matrix-based Quick Response (QR) codes that will allow fans to view highlights from throughout Detroit’s last 19 Stanley Cup drives.

Earlier this year, Red Wings fans had the opportunity to vote for their favorite playoff moments from 1991-2010 by visiting the team’s official website. Through extensive online balloting, a carefully-selected assemblage of 32 classic playoff moments was whittled down to the 16 that will be featured on this year’s high-tech post-season tickets. Season Ticket Holders will be able to access video footage of Hockeytown’s favorite playoff moments from the last two decades on their smartphones by downloading a special mobile app at and then scanning the QR codes emblazoned upon each playoff ticket included in their forthcoming packages.
Red Wings fans are currently able to purchase up to four (4) tickets per game for each of the team’s first three opening round home games versus a to-be-determined opponent at the Joe Louis Arena Box Office as well as all TicketMaster locations, including The Hockeytown Café in Detroit and Hockeytown Authentics in Troy.  Tickets can also be obtained by logging on to, or by calling 800-745-3000.
The NHL’s best fans are able to save on box office prices by purchasing a full Playoff Ticket Plan, thereby ensuring access to the same seat for every possible post-season game staged at Joe Louis Arena this spring.  To qualify for this offer, fans need only to place a low down payment on 2011-12 season tickets.  In addition to enjoying significant savings, the Playoff Ticket Plan also offers the ‘Pay-as-the-Wings-Play’ payment option, which eliminates the need to pay for the entire post-season up front. Fans electing to take advantage of this exciting offer are charged only for games that are guaranteed to be played throughout the duration of Detroit’s impending championship quest on a round-by-round/game-by-game basis. Information on Playoff Ticket Plans can be obtained by calling the Red Wings’ Ticket Sales & Service Department at 313-396-7575.
