For the last 26 years, Michigan State and Michigan have played each other in a conference game at Joe Louis Arena. Since 1990-91, the Spartans and Wolverines have met 29 times in the middle of winter at the home of the Detroit Red Wings, and usually in a compelling, exciting atmosphere that highlights one of college hockey’s greatest rivalries. This great tradition will be extended one more time on Friday before it ends with the closing of Joe Louis Arena in the spring.
