MSU AT JOE LOUIS ARENA

Joe Louis Arena, home of the Detroit Red Wings, has become a second home to Michigan State. Nicknamed "Munn East" by fans, the Spartans have played there 72 times since 1979. MSU has enjoyed tremendous success at JLA, winning 40 of its last 65 contests there (since March 12, 1982). During that span, MSU has won seven CCHA playoff titles and four Great Lakes Invitationals, and produced a stretch of 17 consecutive wins at "The Joe." This season, MSU will play at Joe Louis in the GLI, the College Hockey Showcase, a non-tournament game against Michigan and possibly the CCHA semifinals and finals, which are at Joe Louis for the 16th straight season.
