The Red Wings are one of the most popular and successful franchises in the NHL. In fact, hockey has been so popular in Detroit that it's often called Hockeytown, a name that comes from such a popular marketing campaign from nineteen ninety-six, that it's remained a registered trademark owned by the franchise to this day.

The Red Wings have won 11 Stanley Cups (no other team in the NHL has won that many). Its success may have a lot to do with the city's proximity to Ontario, Canada, home to some of the most prominent teams in the NHL.
Some of the Red Wings' honored members, those heroes that have made the team a reference in the history of the sport, are the following: Terry Sawchuk, Niklas Lidstrom, Ted Lindsay and Gordie Howe. A great assortment of players that have shown, time and time again, what this team is made of!
Like all great teams, they have faced some difficult times as well, but their resilience and strong dedication to their colors and their city have made them resurface from any adversity. Their 15-year dry spell (from nineteen sixty-seven to nineteen eighty-two was a dark period in their otherwise brilliant career that made them earn the monicker ''The Dead Wings'').
It didn't take long for them to win back their fans' love, as they beat the Philadelphia Flyers in four straight games in the Stanley Cup finals in nineteen ninety-seven. They have been back in top form, which was demonstrated in their good placement in the 2012-13 season, where they beat the Dallas Stars with a 3-0 score, which made them preserve their streak of 22 consecutive playoff appearances.
