The Detroit Red Wings look to win their third straight game tonight as the Blue Jackets come to town. The Blue Jackets have lost four out of five games.
The Detroit Red Wings got a huge win on Saturday night against the Nashville Predators. With over a minute left in the first the Red Wings actually scored first as Mike Green got his 10th goal of the year.
Thanks to Petr Mrazek that was all the Red Wings needed. Mrazek was by far the first star of the game as he shut out the Predators. The Red Wings won 1-0 as Mrazek stopped all 42 Predators for his first shutout of the season. If Mrazek has really turned things around, that will bode well for this team.
Tonight, the Red Wings face the Columbus Blue Jackets at Joe Louis Arena. The Blue Jackets are currently second in the Metro Division. Since that 16 game winning streak the Blue Jackets had, they’ve gone 6-8-1 including losing four of their last five games.
Even though the Blue Jackets have come back down to earth recently they’re still a very good team. Cam Atkinson has been leading the Blue Jackets this season. He has 25 goals and 47 points, the Red Wings have no one even close to those numbers.
Petr Mrazek should get the start tonight as he has seemingly turned things around and he could be a big key to the Red Wings turn around.
Tonight starts a tough stretch for the Red Wings. The Red Wings face the Blue Jackets, at Washington, at Columbus, at Minnesota, home against the Blues and Caps and at Pittsburgh. That is one tough stretch of games in the next two weeks. In those seven games hopefully the Red Wings can get a few wins during those two weeks.
Here is all the important information for tonight’s game:
Columbus Blue Jackets (33-13-5) at Detroit Red Wings (22-21-9)
