The Red Wings official schedule was announced yesterday! NHL hockey is back! Yay! The Griffins and college is great, don't get me wrong, but the NHL is the NHL. Next thing the league needs to do--Fire Bettman!

Here's a story from Fox 17 with the Wings 48 game schedule due to the lockout.
"Detroit Red Wings Schedule Released"

"For the Detroit Red Wings, it will be 48 games over 99 days beginning in St. Louis on Saturday, January 19. Detroit will host Dallas on Tuesday, January 22 at Joe Louis Arena for the team’s home opener. The regular season ends against the Stars as well, when Detroit visits Dallas on April 27."
