Fans are calling this "peak girlhood."

If you thought this was about hockey-- you thought wrong! For those who were in attendance of Saturday night's hockey game at Little Caesar's Arena (LCA) this was a core memory in the making!

On March 16, 2024 hockey fans filled the Detroit, MI arena in anticipation of the Professional Women's Hockey League's (PWHL) match-up between Boston and Ottawa. According to CBC Sports the crowd of nearly 13,736 is, "the largest crowd to watch a professional women's hockey game in the United States."

However, Saturday night's game is one for the books not only for it's record-breaking attendance, but for the special powerful moment fans shared as an impromptu Taylor Swift singalong broke out!

With 5:39 remaining in the 2nd period, lyrics to Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me" flashed across the scoreboard and the pandemonium just escalated from there.

One TikTok use @a.turnz11 captured the moment to share with the rest of us, captioning her video, "Taylor Swift and Women's Hockey. What a duo"

What I love most about this whole thing isn't even the video, it's the comments! There's just something about watching female hockey fans, who have already set a record attendance in the PWHL's inaugural season, sing along to their favorite female artist who is also at the peak of her powers in a traditionally male-dominated industry!

Every Sweater Number in Detroit Red Wings History Worn Just Once (Or Not At All)

For whatever reason, these numbers have either been worn just once or never at all in the nearly 100-year history of Detroit Red Wings hockey, according to Hockey Reference.

(Hockey Reference suggests that No. 6 was only worn by Cummy Burton, which is incorrect as Larry Aurie wore the number first and the number is pseudo-retired. Such inaccuracies are difficult to narrow down, so where they can be corrected they will be.)
