Tuesday night NHL action brings you the Detroit Red Wings traveling to Columbus to take on the Blue Jackets. Detroit got their second win of the year last time out against the Dallas Stars, While the Blue Jackets took down the Sabres in OT. Columbus is 8-1-1 in their last 10 games vs. Detroit.
Detroit Red Wings
Detroit is trying their hardest to get things rolling this year, and a win against a .500 hockey team is a good place to start. The win was at home, and the NHL is really set up for the home team to have the advantage. Tuesday will be a completely different story for Detroit as they have only won once on the road, and Columbus is a pretty good hockey team.
Detroit isn’t exactly lighting it up offensively this year, scoring an average of 2.27 goals a game this year. Dylan Larkin is leading the way with 4 goals and 5 assists with a plus/minus of -6. Projected starting goalie Jimmy Howard comes into Tuesday’s game with a 1-5 record and a 3.07 GAA and .913 save percentage.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets have bounced back well after that 4-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes last Tuesday by rattling off two straight wins against the St. Louis and Buffalo. The Jackets have a real good shot of making it a perfect three for three against an underachieving Red Wings team.
Columbus comes into this game scoring nearly 1.5 more goals a game than Detroit, and with the poor defensive play of the Red Wings, this game could be an ugly one for Detroit fans. Sergei Bobrovsky will look to get his numbers under control in this one. He comes in with a 2-4 rocord, with a very inflated 3.87 GAA and a .872 save percentage. Not good numbers for this guy at all.

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Prediction:
This is a matchup of two battered goaltenders who are trying to get their stats back into the respectable range for NHL goalies. It could go either way.
But put your money in on Columbus to win this game at home. Detroit just isn’t that good of a hockey team, and the Jackets are playing below their potential at the moment.
