Red Wings’ next three opponents

Following an embarrassing drubbing at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday at Joe Louis Arena, the Detroit Red Wings will look to rebound and get back on the winning side of things as the end of the regular season draws closer. Their work doesn’t get any easier as they aim for their 25th consecutive playoff berth. Here are the Red Wings’ next three opponents.

Monday, March 28 vs. Buffalo Sabres

The Red Wings and Buffalo Sabres will meet for the fifth and final time this season tonight at 7:30 ET. The Sabres, while out of the playoff race, have improved from last season under the coaching of Dan Bylsma and second overall draft pick Jack Eichel. The Red Wings lead the season series 3-1 so far; their most recent game was in Buffalo on January 22, a 3-0 Detroit triumph.

Tuesday, March 29 at Montreal Canadiens

This will be Detroit’s second game against Montreal in less than a week; only this time the scene shifts to Quebec. The Red Wings defeated the Canadiens in Detroit on Thursday night by a 4-3 final, a game that featured Anthony Mantha’s first NHL goal. Despite a 9-0 start to the season, the Canadiens have fallen out of the playoff race following the injury to last year’s Hart Trophy winning goaltender Carey Price. This is Detroit’s first visit to Montreal since October 17, a 4-1 Canadiens win.

Friday, April 1 vs. Minnesota Wild

The Red Wings return home to face the Minnesota Wild, a Western Conference foe also fighting for a playoff spot. Their only previous match-up this season was in St. Paul on December 28, a 3-1 Wild win. Minnesota has improved under new coach John Torchetti following the firing of Mike Yeo in February. Though this game will be played on April Fools Day, the Red Wings won’t be in a joking mood as they try to gain additional ground in the playoff chase.
