Postcards from the Classic: Wings practice

By ESPN.com staff

The Red Wings got a chance to practice on the ice at the Big House today. They bundled up to stay warm in the 17 degree weather. After a short practice, they got a chance to skate with their families.

Niklas Kronwall said that the ice conditions were better than he thought.
