On October 12, this picture won't make any sense to people who are watching their first ever Wings-Preds game.
You can head on over to the Wings' official site for more details, but some of the highlights of this year's schedule include a visit to the Joe of every Original 6 team with the exception of the Maple Leafs, who will be playing the Wings in some sort of "special" game on January 1st. The Eastern opponents who the Wings will face twice are the Penguins, Devils and Jets.
Opening night is October 12 at home against the Predators, in what could be a very interesting game depending on the fate of one Ryan Suter. It won't be long before we see what the new Wings could be, as 3 of their first 4 games are against Central opponents (Nashville, St. Louis and Chicago) followed by a match up with the Canucks.
