Can you believe it has already been 25 years since the Detroit Red Wings won the 1997 Stanley Cup? Well, it has been that long and on Thursday night, the Red Wings celebrated their 25th anniversary at Little Caesars Arena. In 1997, the Red Wings defeated the Philadelphia Flyers in four games to win their first Stanley Cup since 1955. Toward the end of their celebration before tonight's game against the Washington Capitals, the Cup was given to Vladimir Konstantinov and the crowd went bonkers.
