Red Wings’ week at a glance, post All-Star break

With the 2016 NHL All-Star Game in the books, all 30 teams will resume their schedules.

The Detroit Red Wings (sans All-Star speedster Dylan Larkin) took advantage of their time off to relax and heal up, but they’ll soon turn their attention to their next opponents on the ice.

Detroit Red Wings Free Agency Review

Here are Detroit’s next three match ups.



Wednesday, February 3 at Tampa Bay Lightning

The Red Wings return to the site of last season’s disappointing Game 7 loss to their divisional rival.

The Lightning, led by GM Steve Yzerman, are currently neck and neck with the Red Wings in the standings. This will also be Detroit’s first game against Steven Stamkos since The Hockey News‘ Ken Campbell predicted a blockbuster trade that would send the sniper to Detroit.



Thursday, February 4 at Florida Panthers

The Red Wings continue their Florida swing with a matchup against the Panthers, another Atlantic Division foe.

The Panthers have enjoyed a rejuvenation this season, led by a mix of youth and veteran leadership. Goaltender Roberto Luongo’s name has been mentioned as a Vezina Trophy candidate, and the ageless Jaromir Jagr continues to play at a high level at 43.



Saturday, February 6 vs. New York Islanders

The Red Wings return to Joe Louis Arena looking to snap a five-game losing skid there when they host the New York Islanders.

Pending free agent Kyle Okposo leads the Isles in scoring, while Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss have provided a solid 1-2 punch in goal.
