Detroit Red Wings receive new dates for COVID-19 postponed games

Detroit Free Press

The Detroit Red Wings have the dates for their pandemic postponed games.

The NHL released dates for the more than 100 games that, halfway through the season, have had to be postponed because of COVID-19. The Wings were so hard hit by the virus they shut down days ahead of the Christmas schedule, which meant two games were postponed before the holiday. Another four were postponed on the flip side of Christmas, but the Wings made up the Jan. 6 contest at Anaheim on Jan. 9.

The Wings were off Wednesday, with their next game scheduled for Friday against the Dallas Stars at Little Caesars Arena.
