October 22nd vs. New York Islanders
A team the Red Wings competed with for a wild-card spot last season. Winning this game is crucial to staying ahead in the playoff race.
October 26th at Buffalo Sabres
Both teams are in a slow build, and winning this game will prove the Red Wings' growth. It's essential for setting the tone in the Atlantic Division rivalry.
October 27th vs. Edmonton Oilers
The Red Wings' upcoming match against the defending Western Conference champions will test their mettle. A win here would prove their playoff worthiness.
January 16th at Florida Panthers
Playing against the Stanley Cup champions will be the ultimate measuring stick. Success here indicates readiness for playoff competition.
February 27th vs. Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus might struggle this season, making these games must win for Detroit, especially with the trade deadline approaching.
March 6th vs. Utah Hockey Club
