DETROIT – The Red Wings quest for the 12th Stanley Cup in franchise history begins on Thursday, Oct. 9, when the Boston Bruins, the defending Presidents’ Trophy winners, pay a visit to Hockeytown for a 7:30 p.m. showdown at Joe Louis Arena.

In conjunction with opening night, all fans in attendance will receive a 2014-15 Red Wings magnet schedule, courtesy of Belle Tire, as Detroit and Boston meet in a rematch of last year’s opening round series of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The matchup will mark the 11th time in franchise history that the two Original Six opponents have squared off in the Red Wings' home opener and the first time since the 1973-74 campaign. Overall, the Red Wings are 47-31-9 in home openers and own a 5-5-0 record in opening games against the Bruins.

The complete Red Wings 2014-15 regular season schedule will be released at a later date.
