Home Opener 10/9 Against Bruins

Great game for the fans and the media but for the team not so much, starting with a hefty loss is never a confidence builder.

The Wings had Boston's number in the regular season; no reason they can't get back to that.

It could be worse. The Kings are raising their Stanley Cup banner in a home opener against the Sharks.

I always thought this thing is overhyped, once the new season starts I doubt opponents still care about the past season. Maybe they'll use it as a motivation and spoil their party.

I think most times it is, but the Sharks had a historic meltdown against the Kings after being up 3-0. Now they have to watch the Kings raise the banner. It seems almost cruel.

And even if they spoil the party, the Sharks have already proven they're great at dominating the regular season.

Well, they could have made the Kings home opener against the Hawks, which would have been even more cruel right?

Detroit played Boston in the 2nd game of the season last year and beat them badly. I don't see this as anything different.

Detroit actually lost that game. 4-1 I believe but not totally sure on the score

We will get a nice early look at this season's new styles in diving.

Embellishment City!

In the 3rd game the Wings won, 8-2 in Boston. The Wings lost their home opener to Boston two days later, 2-0.

I counted 12 back to backs and I think 3 or 4 were in the last month or so. Way more than I would prefer and a lot of 3 games in four days and 4 in 6

interesting look, and the last 8 games or so don't appear to be (at this stage) too hefty:

@ NYI

vs OTT

vs BOS

@ MIN

vs WSH

vs CAR

@ MTL

@ CAR

Then again, I'm really really hoping that we won't need to be looking at these games that are late in the year hoping we get in!!

I remember the days, not so long ago, when the League didn't release the upcoming schedule until after the "Las Vegas Gala' and "Draft Day" had happened.

That first month is pretty brutal. But I expect the squad to be healthy and ready for the new season. Hopefully we make some trades or signings and we can get back to having some consistency.

Is there a reasoning behind 17 out of 23 games being road games in the months of January and February? Ouch.

Interesting schedule. Glad to be done with the Leafs before the new year, hate dealing with my bozo friends :lol:

On the contrary. This is the worst time to play the Leafs.

The best time to play Toronto, traditionally, is late February - early April :lol:
