Few teams in the NHL boast a history that rivals that of the Detroit Red Wings. Founded in 1926 when they were known as the Detroit Cougars, the Red Wings are one of the NHL's "Original Six" teams -- along with the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, and New York Rangers.

The Red Wings are a model of consistency in the NHL, once making the playoffs for 23 consecutive seasons -- a streak dating back to 1991. Easily the most successful of all the Detroit sports teams, the Red Wings are known for passionate fans -- and Detroit has been dubbed Hockeytown as a result.

Detroit used to play its games in the Western Conference, but the NHL's realignment prior to the 2013-14 season placed the Red Wings in the Eastern Conference. While the Red Wings built rivalries against the St. Louis Blues, Chicago Blackhawks, Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars in the Western Conference, the new realignment places Detroit in the Atlantic division, along with two fellow "Original Six" members -- the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens.

Detroit plays its home games at the Joe Louis Arena -- and there are few, if any, arenas that are better to watch a a hockey game. Find out first-hand how electric and raucous the atmosphere is -- buy your Red Wings tickets today, and get out to Joe Louis Arena this season!
