They bolstered their offense this off-season with the addition of Brad Richards and added Mike Green for defensive purposes, as the Red Wings look for their first Stanley Cup Trophy since 2008.

In order to reach the postseason once again, it’s a sure thing that the Red Wings will need to see strong production from veteran forward Pavel Datsyuk.

With Teemu Pulkkinen and Riley Sheahan each scoring once and adding one assist, the Red Wings ended the game 2-5. Unfortunately, they are no closer to the top of the division.

After that, it will be nearly two weeks before the Red Wings return to Detroit. Tickets are available starting as low as $25.
3/3/15 - The Detroit Red Wings are just wrapping up their six-game series of away games and they did admirably, winning four of the six games on the road. These recent wins are getting them close to the top of the Atlantic Division. They trail behind the Montreal Canadiens and the Tampa Bay Lightning, with only 6 points between them and the number one position. With such an exhausting run of games, the Red Wings are sure to be grateful to be back on their home ice. They start by taking on the New York Rangers on March 4th. Tickets start at $34. However, the March 6th game against the Calgary Flames is the more anticipated match and tickets for that one are available beginning at $73.
2/24/15 - It has been an exhausting stretch of games for the Detroit Red Wings, who have seen four of their last five go into overtime. Three of those contests ended in shootouts, with the Red Wings claiming two victories in their last three games. Saturday night featured a particularly wild battle, as Detroit prevailed over the Dallas Stars, 7-6. The Stars led by two goals in the second period, and again mid-way through the third, but two scores by the Red Wings in the final eight minutes pushed the game in to overtime, where Niklas Kronwall netted his seventh of the season to complete the rally. Detroit will duke it out with the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night, and you can be a part of all the excitement starting at $40!
2/17/15 - The Detroit Red Wings came up short in their rivalry game versus the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night, falling 2-0. Following a tough 5-4 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets, a game in which they led by 3-1 in the second period, the Red Wings are looking to change their fortunes in a hurry, as they try to keep pace in the Atlantic Conference. Goaltender Jimmy Howard made his second start since returning from a groin injury which kept him off the ice for over a month, stopping 27 shots as he continues to shake off the proverbial rust. Detroit will get right back to it on Wednesday night, as they travel to the United Center in Chicago to face off with the Blackhawks. Get in with tickets starting at $94!
2/13/15 - Trailing the Montreal Canadiens by just two points in the Atlantic Division standings, the Detroit Red Wings have been playing like a team with designs on a first-place finish. Having won 10 of their last 12 games, the Red Wings have added to their cushion over the Boston Bruins, making the most of a manageable schedule that included games with Colorado, Arizona, Florida, and Minnesota. However, they ran into a wall on Wednesday, falling 4-1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins, putting in their lone goal in the final minutes when the game was already decided. Detroit will get three nights of rest before returning home for games versus Winnipeg and Montreal. A handful of tickets for Red Wings vs. Canadiens is still available starting at $85, but don’t delay—supplies are limited!

They scored a whopping four times during the middle stretch of the game, the first of which being only 32 seconds into the second period. Luke Glendening scored twice, while Stephen Weiss got one point and two assists and Riley Sheahan also had two assists. This was the Red Wings' sixth victory in a row, but they unfortunately lost it on Jan. 29th when only Darren Helm was able to score against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Detroit plays the New York Islanders next and tickets start at $34.
1/19/15 - Tuesday night, the Detroit Red Wings will look for their fifth straight victory as they close out a three-game homestand versus the Minnesota Wild. The Red Wings managed an improbable comeback victory on Sunday night, rallying from a 3-0 deficit to knock off the Buffalo Sabres behind captain Henrik Zetterberg’s hat trick—the sixth of his 11-year career. Detroit is knocking on the door for first place in the Atlantic Division, and not far behind the New York Islanders for tops in the Eastern Conference, with the mid-season All Star break just around the corner. Get in the game on Tuesday night at Joe Louis Arena when the Red Wings host the Wild—a handful of seats are still available starting at $40, so act now!
1/13/15 - The third ranked team in the Atlantic Division is the Detroit Red Wings. Thus far, they have amassed a 23-11-9 record, and are one of the better teams in terms of offenses. Their last game was against the Buffalo Sabres, which ended in their favor 3-1. Darren Helm, Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyguist all scored for the Red Wings, and it was a team victory that they can hang their hats on. Kyle Quincey had a great game passing the puck around, and ended up getting 2 much-needed assists. Up next for the Red Wings is an important game against St. Louis, which goes down tomorrow. Tickets for the game can be bought right now, and the starting price is $55. It should be an exciting one for the fans.
1/5/15 - The Detroit Red Wings have a huge following no matter where they go. They’ve been on the road since January 3, and on January 17, they finally come back to home ice at Joe Louis Arena to face the Nashville Predators. If you’ve been missing your Detroit hockey team, don’t wait to get tickets from Razorgator. Great seats are available, with prices starting at just $67. The next day, the Red Wings host the Buffalo Sabres. Seeing your favorite team two days in a row is a fantastic way to beat the winter blues. At 21-10-9, the Red Wings sit in 3rd place in the Atlantic Division. Coach Mike Babcock says this is the best Red Wings team since the 2008-2009 season when they almost repeated as Stanley Cup champions.
12/30/14 - After winning two games in a row, the potential for a streak ended when the Detroit Red Wings lost 2-5 against the Boston Bruins in their most recent outing on December 29. Despite the Bruins having many players on the sick and injured list, they were able to draw ahead early. Although the Red Wings have recently been strong at coming back from behind, they were unable to do so against the Bruins. Detroit's two goals came from Justin Abdelkader and Tomas Tatar, and Jimmy Howard also had a strong night with 40 saves, although not enough to bring about a victory. The Red Wings have learned a lesson about needing to be ready to play their best at the start of the game. They can test their readiness when they meet the New Jersey Devils at home on December 31. Tickets are still available, starting at $34.
12/24/14 - The Detroit Red Wings most recent shoot out loss of 2-1 against the Colorado Avalanche brought their winless streak to six games, with them losing 7 out of 8 shootouts. They currently have a record of 17-8-9, putting them 3rd in the Atlantic Division. The team is working on how to score more goals, and be stronger in shootouts to turn around their season. Stephen Weiss is back from injury and ready to play after missing four games with a shoulder injury. He will provide a welcome assist to an offense that has been rather lackluster in the past few games. They next face the Buffalo Sabres at home on December 23rd, before heading to Ottawa to face the Senators on the 27th (tickets starting at $81) and Boston to see the Bruins on the 29th (tickets starting at $24).
12/18/14 - Coming off their fourth loss in four games, the Detroit Red Wings are hoping to regain their traction as they take on the New York Islanders on Friday at home. The combination of being in Wing territory and a sea of red-attired fans in the seats should help Detroit as they battle the 21-10-0 Islanders. Despite being on a two-game winning streak, the Islanders have holes in their defense that the Red Wings would be smart to expose. With the combination of their power play expertise and hopefully some players coming off the injured list, Detroit just might be able to snap that losing streak. Tickets are still available to see the Wings in person at the Joe Louis Arena, starting at only $24 per seat.
12/10/14 - The Detroit Red Wings are currently ranked 1st in the Atlantic Division, with a 17-6-5 record so far this season. Their latest victory, on Sunday, December 7, was a 3-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes. The dynamic duo Tomas Tatar and Pavel Datsyuk led the Red Wings to success, with Tatar scoring two goals and Datsyuk scoring the third and assisting twice. Their win against the Hurricanes makes three in a row. They will be looking to add a fourth when they return home to face the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday December 10, followed by the Florida Panthers on December 12. These games pit them against other teams in their Atlantic Division, so the outcome will affect their status as number 1. Tickets are still on sale for the Panthers game, starting at $19.
12/2/14 - The Detroit Red Wings had an outstanding victory on Sunday when they took on the Vancouver Canucks. In a very high scoring game, Detroit managed to score twice in the first and third period and one more in the second brought their score to a whopping 5 over Vancouver’s 3. Henrik Zetterberg led Detroit with 2 assists and Pavel Datsyuk led in scores with 2, the second of which was unassisted. Despite winning the game, Vancouver did shoot more often, but the Red Wings’ strong defense held strong. Now that they are at 14-5-5, Detroit prepares for a series of away games, starting with the Florida Panthers. They will return to Detroit on the 7th, when they take on the Carolina Hurricanes. Tickets start at only $7.
11/25/14 - At one-quarter of the way through the NHL season, the Detroit Red Wings are averaging 2.75 goals per game, which puts them right in the middle of the pack. They sit in 4th place in the Atlantic Division, with a 10-5-5 record. On Wednesday, November 26, the Red Wings are on home ice for a game against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Red Wings recalled Stephen Weiss from Grand Rapids, and he’s looking to get his start on the ice for the team. Tomas Tatar is on a hot streak with 8 goals in the last 11 games. You’ll want to get your tickets to watch these great players on the ice. The Red Wings need your support to get back into the playoffs for the Stanley cup.
11/18/14 - The Detroit Red Wings hardly have time to breathe between their upcoming games when they’re out on the road against the New York Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday and Saturday respectively. Local fans will be happy to see them come back home to the Joe Louis Arena on the 24th to host the Ottawa Senators. Detroit is 4th in the Atlantic Division at 8-4-5, and they are struggling with consistency this season. They have a strong fan base, and they are the favorite in their road trip games. They’ll need your support to find the motivation to stay on top of the game and take more shots which should help them put more wins in the column. Get tickets to cheer them on and watch them play great hockey!
11/11/14 - The Detroit Red Wings are on home ice on Sunday, November 16th facing the Montreal Canadiens in an evening game. The Red Wings had a tough game against the Tampa Bay Lightning that ended in a shootout with the Lightning taking the win. Before the Wings meet the Canadiens, they host the Chicago Blackhawks in a Friday night game. You’ll want to get tickets to see them play at the Joe Louis Arena before they go out on the road for three games. The Red Wings are 5th in the Atlantic Division, and they are a fan favorite, so the tickets will go fast. They have made the playoffs in 28 of the last 30 seasons. Help cheer them on to get back there again.
11/4/14 - As the Devils arrive in Detroit, the Red Wings are sure to be eager to defend their territory. Currently standing at 6-3-3, Detroit is shooting for those crucial victories that can help them fight their way into the upper tier of the Atlantic division. Following the stroke of Gordie Howe, the Red Wings have certainly got their cause to rally around, and with the news of his progressing recovery can only help to embolden their resolve as New Jersey arrives for the match in Detroit. Fans can expect their Detroit Red Wings to leave it all on the ice on Friday, and can get personal view of the action by securing their seat before they’re gone. Tickets for the game are still available starting at $28.
10/27/14 - With 10 points and seven assists, the Detroit Red Wings’ Henrik Zetterberg is back to his old form. Zetterberg missed significant parts of last season with back injuries, but offseason surgery took care of the issues to return him to his form as a productive skater.
10/23/14 - The city of Detroit will demolish the Red Wings’ home, city-owned Joe Louis Arena, as part of a deal struck with a creditor in the city’s bankruptcy case. Not to fear that the Wings would be left homeless – a new downtown arena is under development not far from JLA.
10/16/14 - Through the first 3 games of the 2014 NHL season, Detroit's 1-1-1. After winning a home game on 10/9 vs the Boston Bruins 2-1, they lost to Anaheim 3-2 and Boston 3-2 in OT. Still, with 3 points they're 6th in the Atlantic division.
The Detroit Red Wings are a franchise steeped in excellence and prestige, having made the playoffs for an incredible 23 seasons. Last year’s campaign was decimated by injuries, chiefly those to Henrik Zetterberg, Joe Franzen, Pavel Datsyuk, Darren Helm, Stephen Weiss. Despite setting a franchise record for most man games lost to injury (471), this Original Six team still proved talented enough to make the postseason with vigor, but was ultimately cut in the first round by the Boston Bruins. Detroit is returning a generally unchanged squad from last year’s playoff team, and if the Motor City squad stays healthy, who's to say they won't punch a playoff berth for an astounding 24th year?
Some of the game’s most beloved players pepper Detroit lines, and now, those veterans will fine-tune an impressive influx of youngsters like Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar and touted prospects Alexei Marchenko, Anthony Ouellet, Ryan Sproul and Petr Mrazek. GM Ken Holland was unable to bag a top-four defenseman in free agency, and must work with a lineup that boasts seven left-handers. In his 10th year as head coach, Mike Babcock is nears his 500th NHL career win, while David Legwand is likely to attain his 1,000th career game—making the entirety of the 2014-2015 calendar a can’t miss affair. But, before they can toss the octopus onto the ice, they'll have to get through their 82-game slate (relatively) unscathed. See Detroit host playoff caliber teams early on: the defending champion LA Kings visit on Oct. 31, the Chicago Blackhawks on Nov. 14 and of course, the Bruins on Oct. 9. The game against Boston not only marks a playoff rematch from last year, but it also opens up the Red Wing’s 2014-2015 season. Lock-in Detroit Red Wings tickets for this monumental year now!
4/21/14 – Boston and Detroit’s first round playoff series is all tied up 1-1 and the Red Wings will play their first postseason game of the year at Joe Louis Arena, Tuesday.

In a best-of-seven series that the Bruins are widely favored to win, the Detroit Red Wings secured Game 1 of their twenty-third consecutive playoff run. Pavel Datsyuk’s goal with 3:01 remaining did the trick, and Detroit won 1-0 Friday on the road. Boston evened the series with a 4-1 win over the Wings in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, playing more physical and limiting Detroit to just one power-play shot in four tries.
4/17/14 – The Red Wings secured the second and final NHL postseason spot in the East with 93 points and now have the longest active Stanley Cup Playoffs streak (23). Detroit will face the No.1 seeded, Presidents’ Trophy winners Boston Bruins for the first time in 57 years in the playoffs. The three home games played in Detroit (Games 3, 4, and 6) of the Original Six matchup are much cheaper (avg. $175) than the four game average of those played in Boston ($366). Tuesday, the Red Wings will play their first playoff game at Joe Louis Arena (avg. $111, min $42), followed by home game 2 (Game 4) Thursday averaging $143 and a Game 6 if necessary in Detroit Monday (avg. $240). First round playoff tickets for the series are an average $254. Detroit holds the regular-season record at 4-2.
4/7/14 – The NHL enters the final week of the regular season with the Red Wings leading the wildcard race in the East. Winners of four straight, Detroit’s playoff hopes looked more attractive when All-Star forward Pavel Datsyuk (knee) returned to the lineup Friday against the Buffalo Sabres. Expect a fast-paced, high scoring game at the Consol Energy Arena Wednesday when the Red Wings travel to Pittsburgh in a potential first-round preview. The two teams have met twice in the NHL playoffs in the last five seasons and have split two games already this season (DET with the OT win March 20). Detroit Red Wings playoff tickets are now available, with round one prices upwards of $41 (home games 1 and 2).
4/1/14 – If the Red Wings can find a way into the NHL Playoffs, they’d extend their postseason streak to 23 seasons, the longest active streak in all North American professional sports. After grabbing four points on a back-to-back weekend, Detroit holds the first wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. Mike Babcock secured a historic mark in his own right, earning his 411th victory as the Red Wings’ coach, second most in the franchise. With just three more wins, Babcock will surpass Jack Adams for the top spot.
3/24/14 – The Red Wings won 10 straight home games without a regulation loss before losing in OT to the Minnesota Wild Sunday night. Detroit will look to protect its playoff position with a handful of wins this week. Two of the Red Wings next four will be played at Joe Louis Arena – 3/27 vs. Montreal (avg. $75) and 3/30 vs. Tampa Bay (avg. $78). Following a 3-2 win over the Wild Saturday in Minnesota, the team moved into eighth place in the Eastern Conference.
3/18/14 – Tonight’s Original Six clash against the Toronto Maple Leafs is the most expensive (avg. $98) regular-season game remaining at Joe Louis Arena. Detroit is looking for a spark from their offence (scored three goals over their last four games) as the club looks to make a push for their 23rd straight playoff appearance. Currently three points behind the New York Rangers for the last playoff berth in the East and without their captain Zetterberg (back) and superstar Pavel Datsyuk (knee), the Red Wings need your support!
3/10/14 – Former Detroit Red Wing Nicklas Lidstrom had his jersey retired last Thursday, becoming the first defenseman in franchise history to do so. The Colorado Avs ended up winning that game in overtime, but the night belonged to No. 5. After Detroit put up a massive seven goals against New Jersey Friday, the Red Wings were shut out by the Rangers Sunday. In addition, Joakim Andersson broke his left foot when blocking a shot during the second-period PK in New York and will miss 2-3 weeks. Catch the boys, sans Andersson, when they return to home ice Thursday to take on the Edmonton Oilers (avg. $73).
3/3/14 – Pavel Datsyuk (knee) will not play Tuesday night, when the Detroit Red Wings visit New Jersey but is expected back on the ice Thursday against Colorado at Joe Luis Arena. Colorado Avalanche vs. Detroit Red Wings tickets start at $55; the game will be the first at home for the Wings since the Olympic break. The next night, Detroit will host New Jersey, coming full circle. New Jersey Devils vs. Detroit Red Wings tickets are slightly cheaper, with a get-in price of $45.
2/25/14 – Currently in the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, Detroit needs to return to the ice post-Olympics with a sense of urgency. Just one point separates the Red Wings and ninth-ranked Columbus. A back injury will likely sideline the team’s leader in points (48), assists (32), and goals (16) - Henrik Zetterberg - for the rest of the regular season, which means the Wings’ will look to their veterans - Pavel Datsyuk, Johan Franzen and Daniel Alfredsson – to fill the void. Cheer on the Wings when they return to Joe Louis Arena Mar 6; with 11 home games remaining, Detroit Red Wings ticket prices are averaging $94 in the tight playoff race!
2/18/14 – Like their rivals Chicago Blackhawks, the Red Wings have a strong presence at the Sochi Olympics with 10 players on rosters. However, both Detroit’s first-time Olympian forwards Tomas Tatar and Tomas Jurco, ended their Winter Games journey today as Slovakia fell to the Czech Republic in the playoff qualification round. But, each delivered in the group phase of the tournament, scoring the only two goals for their Country in the first three matchups. Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg pulled out of the Sochi Games last Friday after suffering a herniated disk. The Captain of Team Sweden will return to the U.S. shortly, but will not take the ice when The Wings return to action a week from Wednesday due to the injury.
2/3/14 – The Red Wings may have dropped an 11-goal battle to the Caps Sunday, squashing hopes for a home-and-home sweep, but it was a standout day for right wing Gustav Nyquist who earned his first career hat trick and added an assist. Like the Washington Capitals, the Red Wings have gone to a shootout or overtime in three of their last four games. Tonight, Detroit will face the Canucks as John Tortorella returns to the bench after a 15-game suspension. Detroit Red Wings tickets at Joe Louis Arena are as cheap as $10 to see the 24-19-12 team for the last time at home until March 6.
1/28/14 – Last week NHL fans were asking if the Red Wings, Blackhawks rivalry could be renewed. Detroit Red Wings tickets to the Wednesday night matchup averaged 55 percent less than they had March 3 and 45 percent less than the Original Six members meeting March 31, 2013. Detroit made a statement against the defending Stanley Cup Champs, rallying to defeat the Blackhawks 5-4 (SO) and reviving the rivalry that some questioned could be restored. Things continued to look up for the Wings when Daniel Alfredsson returned to the ice against Montreal Friday and Johan Franzen was back in the lineup Sunday. Unfortunately, Franzen is out again with concussion symptoms. Next up for Detroit at home? Washington. Red Wings tickets are as low as $35 against the Capitals.
