After the game the boys hustled over to the Hockeytown Cafe for a pizza party then enjoyed watching the Detroit Red Wings defeat the Columbus Blue Jackets in an exciting shoot-out at the "Joe". On Sunday morning they were back at Joe Louis Arena, but this time it was the Jr. Sting skating on the ice with the big winged wheel at center!
