Let The Festivities Begin

The 2014 NHL Winter Classic is just two days away but the biggest story  on Monday was the Leafs and Red Wings Alumni practices at Comerica Park. It was a chance for many old friends and foes to get caught up before they face-off against each other Tuesday afternoon (1pm CBC).

The players reacted like youngsters when Gordie Howe was escorted to the ice for the group photo.

Johnny Bower and Gordie Howe, two Hockey Hall of Famers and hockey legends shook hands and hugged at centre ice following the group photo.

The alumni game will give fans a chance to see some of their favourite players growing up back on the ice wearing the familiar Blue and White.
