The Russian Five

It's hard to believe that it was 15 years ago yesterday (October 27) that the Russian Five first played together. This was the first time in the NHL that five Russian players played on the same line. The Russian Five or sometimes called the Russian Unit is a great moment in Red Wings history. There is a nice write-up of this day in history on NHL Fanhouse.

Check out this clip from Fox Sports talking about the Russian Five...and a very young James Brown! Go JB!
