The Columbus Blue Jackets look to rebound from a tough home loss when they hit the road and head north to take on the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets took the NHL by storm prior to the deadline, rattling off a huge winning streak and sky rocketing themselves to the top spot in the NHL.
However, since that winning streak, things have gone south for Columbus.
Despite sitting with the third best record in the NHL still, Columbus has gone just 6-8-1 since the streak came to an end.
Sergei Bobrovsky will be a huge key here as he looks to get himself back on track. After being lock down for most of the season, Bobrovsky has allowed at least 4 goals in each of his last 4 starts.
He does have a solid track record against the Wings, going 7-4-1 with a pair of shut outs.
Detroit Red Wings
Stability is the key going forward for Detroit.
The Red Wings have been one of the most streaky teams in the NHL and after another losing streak, they’ve put together back to back wins and now find themselves above the .500 mark once again.
Detroit needs to first look to their power play units and perhaps mix things up.
The Wings have gone just 2 for their last 30 with the man advantage, failing to really take advantage of golden opportunities.
Detroit needs to also find some more consistent home play. The Wings enter play on Tuesday just 11-12-4-0 as they put in just 2.5 goals per game.
Generating offense has been a huge issue for Detroit, but this is a perfect team and situation to find some solid shots at goal.
