At long last, the NHL season is set to begin, and the Detroit Red Wings will open — as reported multiple times — on Jan. 19 at St. Louis. The Wings’ home opener will take place three days later on Jan. 22, following a Jan. 21 visit to Columbus, when the Dallas Stars visit Joe Louis Arena.
Detroit plays six games in the month of January: at St. Louis, at Columbus, vs. Dallas, vs. Minnesota, at Chicago and vs. Dallas again.
The Wings’ full schedule can be found here.
The regular season will conclude with game No. 48 on April 27 … at Dallas. The Wings play three straight home games (Phoenix, L.A., Nashville) before that finale.
