DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings will be looking to extend their home ice winning streak to eight games on Thursday, December 8 (puck drop – 7:30 p.m.) when the Phoenix Coyotes pay a visit to Joe Louis Arena. As part of the season-long ‘Bobblehead Thursdays’ promotion, the first 7,500 fans in attendance for this contest will receive a free Johan Franzen bobblehead compliments of Amway, presenting sponsor of the Detroit Red Wings.
Fans 1-7,500 entering The Joe on Thursday will receive a voucher, which they can then redeem for a bobblehead at one of the designated giveaway tables situated throughout the arena concourse until the start of the second period. Five (5) of the bobbleheads given away at this game will be brandished with a distinct marking on the inside of the box lid. Fans who receive these specially-marked bobbleheads will win a post-game meet-and-greet with Franzen outside of the Red Wings’ locker room.
Special Coke Zero Family Packs – comprised of two tickets, two hot dogs and two Coke Zeroes for as low as $54 – are available for the Red Wings’ first home game of December. Tickets to all upcoming Red Wings home games can be purchased at the Joe Louis Arena Box Office (313-396-7575), all Ticketmaster outlets (800-745-3000), and online at DetroitRedWings.com.
