How to watch the Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings are an ice hockey franchise that competes in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference in the National Hockey League (NHL). The franchise’s games are available to stream across various online streaming services. 

The Red Wings are the most successful American NHL franchise of all time, which has led to Detroit being dubbed “Hockeytown” by hockey fans and media. It has won 11 Stanley Cup championships, which is only bettered by Canadian franchises the Montreal Canadiens (24) and the Toronto Maple Leafs (13). However, the Red Wings haven’t won the Stanley Cup since 2008 and have failed to reach the NHL Playoffs for the last four consecutive seasons.

In the 2019/20 NHL season, the Red Wings finished last in the Eastern Conference. The team won just 17 of its 71 regular-season games with a .275 points percentage and a -122 goal differential, both of which were comfortably the worst records in the entire NHL.

Therefore, the only way is up for the Detroit Red Wings in the 2021 season, which the NHL is targeting to begin on 1 January 2021. This article will explore how to stream Red Wings games and the channels and streaming services that enable people to watch the Red Wings live in the new season.
