Given their move to the Eastern Conference, one could argue that every Detroit Red Wings game in 2013-14 is of the "can't miss" variety.

Indeed, the young season has already yielded an intriguing new rivalry with their Atlantic Division neighbors, the Boston Bruins and previously uninteresting tilts against Eastern Conference teams like the Carolina Hurricanes are suddenly consequential.

The Red Wings off-season moves combined with their new NHL zip code also make for some interesting story lines.

Their marquee summer acquisitions in Daniel Alfredsson and Stephen Weiss arrived from Ottawa and Florida, respectively, with whom the Red Wings now share the division.

Additionally, former Red Wing, Valtteri Filppula, who was handed his hat over the summer after eight years in Detroit, found a new home with Steve Yzerman's Tampa Bay Lightning.

Three familiar faces in new places all in the same division will make for no shortage of potential grudge matches this season.

However, the heated rivalries that Detroit was forced to leave behind in the Western Conference will undoubtedly be made even more intense given the infrequency they'll face off with the likes of the St. Louis Blues, Nashville Predators and Chicago Blackhawks.

Finally, while all fans highlighted some "can't-miss" games on the schedule when the season began, the first nine outings of the 2013-14 season have added some considerable spice to previously bland offerings on the Red Wings calendar.

With 73 games remaining in the 2013-14 season, here are five that no fan should miss.
