They will meet three times every regular season, including twice at Joe Louis Arena this season. Detroit goalie...

The surprising news, perhaps, is that the NHL has made the cover of Sports Illustrated, an event that occurs just a handful of times a year. The unsurprising part, however, is who will be on the cover. SI has decided to give hockey a little love on its upcoming issue, which will feature the NHL preview. It shouldn’t come as much of a shock, though, that the two regional covers...
