The Detroit Red Wings are hosting four preseason games in September as a lead off to the Regular Season. If you would like to see players like Martin Frk, Anthony Mantha, and Luke Glendening getting a significant amount of minutes on the ice as Red Wings I would suggest heading down to the Joe for at least one game.
The Detroit Red Wings host the Boston Bruins, their new division rival, on September 21st. It will be a good introduction to the Eastern Conference and our new division.
On September 22nd the Chicago Blackhawks head back to Detroit for early semi-revenge game.
After the Blackhawks, the Red Wings take on another Eastern Conference rival whom Wing fans already did not like, the Pittsburgh Penguins. That game will take pace on September 25th.
In their last preseason game on September 27th, the Red Wings take on their Winter Classic rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Each of these games will be great, but do not expect to see the same intensity you would during the Regular Season. The Wings will be experimenting with younger players and trying to keep their veterans healthy.
In the preseason leading up to the 2011-12 season, Todd Bertuzzi did not play a single game, but was ready for the regular season. That is something to expect in the preseason leading up to this season as well. Expect to see plenty of the youngsters with the veterans mixed in to get them read for the preseason.
Tickets are on sale now and could be had for as little as $25.
