Detroit — The Red Wings will begin their home season Oct. 9 against the Boston Bruins.

It was the Bruins, remember, who ended the Red Wings’ season in April with a first-round, five-game defeat in the playoffs.

The game will mark the 11th time in franchise history the two Original Six opponents have met in the Red Wings’ home opener — and the first time since 1973-74.

The Wings’ complete 2014-15 regular season schedule will be released at 4 p.m. Sunday.
