It will be nice to see Darren McCarty back in a Red Wings jersey tonight after playing the last two years for the Calgary Flames. McCarty was one of members of the infamous “grind line” for Detroit during the Stanley Cup runs in 1997, 1998 and 2002 and a very scrappy player. McCarty might be best remembered by Wings fans for getting retribution against Claude Lemieux in 1997 after his hit on fellow grind line player (and friend) in the 1996 playoffs. Having McCarty back will seem like old times!
