Huge month for Wings

January 2, 2006

Of the 14 games the Wings play during the month of January:

  • 12 are against teams headed for the playoffs.  Colorado (on 21 January) is on the bubble–insert laugh track here–but we’ll assume they’ll make it.
  • 3 are against Nashville.  Currently, Wings have a four point lead with a game in hand. 
  • 3 are against some of the best from the East: Carolina, Philly and NYR, and occur over a four-day span (10-14 Jan)
  • 5 against Nashville (twice), Vancouver, Dallas and Minnesota in the month’s final week.

If the Wings are in first on 1 February, October’s schedule against the league’s jv squads should be long forgotten.

20 points out of a possible 28 would be very nice.
