Video: This New Trailer For The 90s Red Wings/Avalanche Rivalry Doc Makes Me Want To Run Through A Brick Wall

May 29, 2022

Holy shit balls. Full disclosure I am a Red Wings fan because of this. The Red Wings are an AHL team right now however when I was at a very impressionable age this rivalry was in full swing. I couldn’t get enough.

My entire family loved the Maple Leafs and because I loved being a shit disturber I chose a different team. Saturday nights were very interesting.

This documentary is sports pornography. A two-hour, top-notch-looking doc about the fiercest rivalry that the sporting world has seen. CHANGE MY MIND. New interviews with all of the characters. It looks unbelievable.

This rivalry had so many where you were moments.

Claude Lemieux’s legendary dirty hit on Kris Draper ignited it all.

When Igor Larionov and Peter Forsberg dropped the mits you know these teams hate each other. I would BEG my dad to stay up late to watch. There is no love lost between these two teams and their players. It was REAL LIFE WWE! You love to see it and I can’t wait.
