The 2016 home opener and final home opener in the history of Joe Louis Arena could not have gone any better for the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night. They picked up their first victory of the season over Ottawa by a final score of 5-1 and defenseman Mike Green picked up his first career hat trick.
Outside of the victory, the fans were greeted to a number of memorable tributes Monday night. The Red Wings put together a video paying tribute to their soon-to-be old home, as they prepare to shift the scene to Little Caesars Arena in 2017. The video was narrated by actor and Michigander Jeff Daniels.
