Ahead of Sunday night's playoff game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, a familiar face made his way to the roof of Joe Louis Arena.

'Al the Octopus' has signaled the Red Wings' quest for the Stanley Cup since 1952.

On top of Al being raised to the roof, the Red Wings will also transform the stairs of the east and west entrances ahead of the game.
