The NHL Network will continue airing its series “Raising the Cup” next week, and once again the Red Wings will be one of the teams on tap.â†µ
On Wednesday, August 11, the network will air Game 5 of the 2002 Stanley Cup Finals between the Detroit Red Wings and the Carolina Hurricanes. The super-loaded 2002 team featured the likes of Brett Hull, Dominik Hasek and Luc Robitaille joining the Red Wings’ already-stacked roster. The team also featured a $65 million payroll and was one of the key reasons behind the push for a salary cap.â†µ
Last week NHL Network aired the 1997 and 1998 Detroit Cup wins. They are going in order with their airings, so I assume the 2008 team will get its time in the limelight very soon.â†µ
Wednesday's show will start at 8 p.m. EST.
