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?

I just may go to that home opener.  Wings did have Boston's number during the regular season and there is no reason that they can't beat them.

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

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.
