Fan sign beckons Steve Yzerman to save the Red Wings
It’s pretty self-explanatory.
The Detroit Red Wings were officially eliminated from playoff contention for the third consecutive season. Though most fans had given up on the notion of the Stanley Cup playoffs months ago, it was still a disappointing milestone for a team that had just spent 25 consecutive years playing for a chance to be the last team standing.
A long-time Red Wings fan who lives in Montreal attended Tuesday night’s game at the Bell Centre against the Montreal Canadiens brought a sign beckoning the former captain to save the team, much like he did with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

“I didn’t think anybody would pick up on (the sign),” he said during a phone call with The Detroit Free Press
