The game represents their second outdoor matchup in three years since both teams took the ice at Michigan Stadium in 2014. The 2014 installment will surely go down as one of the better outdoor games the league has arranged, but as the sequel approaches, it doesn't have quite the same allure - and the reason for this is the lack of a rivalry.Sure the Red Wings and Maple Leafs have gone to war in the past, but that's the problem - it was in the past.
