Red Wings overnight report: bullet-pointing the Winter Classic Alumni game, the CBA and Cup visits

I prefer to spend a little extra time on the “overnight reports” to proffer opinions that the day’s news cycle sometimes prevents me from stating—put simply, sometimes the news moves so fast that if you’re going to stay on your skates while trying to tip pucks down into the net, you might want to leave also attempting to balance on a soapbox for other times—but this morning...
