The Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Blackhawks, St. Louis Blues and Florida Panthers all have flew out overseas this weekend. All teams will be playing against European clubs this coming week before they open up their regular season campaigns in Sweden and Finland on Friday afternoon (afternoon to us).
Here in North America there is only two exhibition games left which will be played on Tuesday. New York Islanders vs. New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia Flyers vs. Minnesota Wild, and the Dallas Stars play some minor league club on Wednesday I believe. Thursday night the official NHL season starts with four games.
