New era in Red Wings hockey begins Wednesday vs. Buffalo
DETROIT (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new era of Red Wings hockey begins Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena.
Detroit opens play in the newly aligned Eastern Conference after spending the last 31 years jetting back and forth to the west coast and places in between.
The Wings will still play teams from the west, but just not as often.
The team opens the year on most short-lists of Stanley Cup contenders, but there will be an adjustment, as they haven't played some of these teams in a year or more.
Still, the players say they feel rejuvenated and fans will have fewer late nights.
Every team in the conference is in the Eastern time zone.
