‘The Russian Five’ Documentary Based On The Detroit Red Wings Gets Release Date [VIDEO]
Since I have been hosting the Flint Firebirds Coach's Show the last few years, I have learned a lot about hockey. I have a new appreciation for the sport, fans and players.
Hockey fans are passionate. Detroit sports fans in general are passionate, but when it comes to Detroit Red Wings fans - you all are some of the best! Those of you that have followed the team are well aware of Sergi Federov, Igor Larionov, Viacheslay Fetisov, Vyacheslav Kozlov and Vladimar Konstantinov. These great players make up 'The Russian Five'.
The documentary takes us through the men joining the Detroit Red Wings, struggling to fit in - let alone communicate with other team members. You will see the team turned into winners and how these five men became true American heroes.
'The Russian Five' debuted in 2018 and has since won several awards. It will begin showing in Michigan theaters on March 22, 2019. This does include showings at NCG in Grand Blanc. For additional theaters, click here.
I will definitely be watching, will you?
