Yesterday, we found out that the Wings would be opening the 2015-16 season on October 9th at home against the Maple Leafs and also their 2nd game would be on the 10th in Carolina. We already knew the team would be in Denver on February 27th to play the Avalanche at Coors field.

Today, we get the rest of the schedule. Here are some key features:

  • Four back-to-backs in October, including getting the Western Canadian road trip out of the way early in the season.
  • Seventeen back-to-backs total.
  • The Wings will have a two-week and six game road trip to start 2016 after playing 9 of 14 games in December at home. This trip takes them out to California to finish the road schedule against the far west teams.
  • The end-of-season run includes the Wild, Bruins, and the Rangers to contend with if Detroit isn't firmly locked into a playoff spot by April.
  • No games against the Sabres until December, no games against the Hurricanes after October.
  • Nine day games!
  • 11 cases of three games in four nights. Three of those are "stacked" into four games in six nights. Lots of cases of two days off.
  • Outside of the late January All-Star break, the wings don't have more than three days off all season. They have three days off in a row six times this season.

Here's the full schedule.
