FOX Sports Detroit to air 71 regular-season Red Wings games

FOX Sports Detroit will televise 71 regular-season games and three preseason games during its coverage of the 2014-15 Detroit Red Wings.

Regular-season coverage begins Oct. 9 with the home opener against the Boston Bruins. The preseason schedule includes three games: Sept. 29 vs. Toronto, Oct. 1 vs. Pittsburgh and Oct. 3 at Toronto.

Among the 71 games produced by FOX Sports Detroit, 11 are slated to air on FOX Sports Plus.

All 82 regular-season games will be available on television with 11 games on NBC or NBCSN.

"We can’t wait for this new season to get started," said Greg Hammaren, Senior Vice President/General Manager of FOX Sports Detroit. "The Ilitch family’s commitment to the Red Wings and Detroit compels us to bring our best effort each and every night."

Calling the action again this season on FOX Sports Detroit is the popular team of Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond. RED WINGS LIVE studio analysts Chris Osgood and Darren Eliot return for another season. Osgood will also serve as a game analyst for select road games this season.

FOX Sports Detroit’s comprehensive coverage, presented by Belle Tire, includes pregame and postgame editions of RED WINGS LIVE. In addition to live reports from Joe Louis Arena and road venues, studio portions of RED WINGS LIVE will originate from FOX Sports Detroit’s Studio at its Southfield headquarters.
