New start times, visits from old rivals highlight 2010-11 schedule
DETROIT – For the first time in seven seasons, the Red Wings will play host to all five Original Six rivals at Joe Louis Arena. And they’ll do so with a new weeknight start time – for 34 of the 41 home games – at 7 p.m. ET.

News of the Original Six home dates highlights the NHL’s release of the 2010-11 schedule for the Red Wings' 85th season. The last time the Red Wings played all five opponents in the same season was in 2002-03. The Wings will host six of the eight Eastern Conference teams that reached the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs, including Washington, Pittsburgh and New Jersey.

The Red Wings will play seven home games against Original Six teams, including three games with the Central Division rivals and Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. The Wings will also host Montreal (Dec. 10), New York Rangers (Feb. 7), Boston (Feb. 13), and Toronto (March 26).

Besides their home opener, the Red Wings will participate in three other Opening Nights -- at Chicago (Oct. 9), Dallas (Oct. 14) and Phoenix (Oct. 16).

The Red Wings will again host their traditional New Year’s Eve game when they welcome the New York Islanders to JLA. The Red Wings have only hosted the Islanders once before on the Dec. 31 tradition. New York won that game in 1985 when rookie left winger Mikko Makela scored at 53-seconds of overtime against Wings goalie Mark LaForest before 18,017 fans at JLA.

The Wings boast a 33-22-8 record on New Year’s Eve, a tradition that dates back to 1927.

In all, the Red Wings will play on back-to-back nights 14 times this season. They will also play in four home-and-home series against Columbus (Nov. 26-28 and Jan. 14-15), Boston (Feb. 11-13), and Chicago (April 8-10).

One of the back-to-back nights will likely be of great interest to Wings' fans. That's when the team swings through Florida with a date with Steve Yzerman's Tampa Bay Lightning at the St. Pete Times Forum on Feb. 17. Last month, Yzerman, who won three Stanley Cup titles as a player and another as a Wings' executive, was named general manager of the Lightning.

The Red Wings will host 23 different teams at Joe Louis Arena. Only six teams – all from the Eastern Conference – will not play at JLA: Atlanta, Buffalo, Carolina, Florida, Ottawa and Tampa Bay.

Fans can still lock in the lowest available prices for the 2010-11 season by becoming a Red Wings season-ticket holder. Full season ticket packages as well as the Gordie Howe 9-Game Plan and the Steve Yzerman 19-Game Plan are currently available.  Fans can take advantage of the many benefits of becoming a Red Wings season ticket holder including a free player autographed hockey stick, bonus tickets to select regular-season home games, several extended payment plans, private presales, exclusive team events and more!
