NHL lockout results in cancellation of more Red Wings games

Bruce Bennett

After the NHL announced Friday that more regular season games are gone as a result of the lockout, the Red Wings crossed four more contests off their calendar.

With the NHL's announcement Friday that all regular season games through Nov. 1 are now erased from the schedule as a result of the ongoing lockout, the Detroit Red Wings have lost four more contests off of their 82-game calendar, according to a report by Ansar Khan of MLive.com.

This latest round of game cancellations leaves open the possibility of beginning the season on Nov. 2, which, according to the report, commissioner Gary Bettman said earlier this week is the date that would make getting a complete season back on the schedule possible. For this to happen, however, the league and the NHL Players Association would need to come to terms for a new collective bargaining agreement by Friday, Oct. 26.

Previously cancelled games would be inserted back into the schedule, as the regular season would likely last a few extra weeks if a deal were to be struck in the timetable Bettman outlined above.

In all, the Red Wings have lost 10 total games from their calendar, with the most recent round of cuts eliminating contests against the San Jose Sharks, Winnipeg Jets, Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames.
