Early on this year, wins have been hard to come by for the Columbus Blue Jackets. This has been mainly due to a sputtering offense that has produced the fewest goals in the league. Columbus had won its first seven games by one goal before the offense erupted in a 5-2 rout of Montreal on Tuesday
Detroit had won three in a row following a disastrous 1-11-1 stretch but followed that up with three straight defeats (0-1-2), failing to earn a point for the first time in six games with Tuesday’s 4-3 setback versus Ottawa.
It appears to me that the Blue Jackets are coming into this one with momentum, and the Red Wings are the team that’s falling. Columbus has won it’s last 2 and the Red Wings have lost their last 3.
I am predicting the Blue Jackets to win this won, and beat the spread.
Detroit Red Wings
Offensively the Detroit Red Wings are still relying on one line. Forward Anthony Mantha recorded his team-leading 12th goal and has collected eight points in his last seven games. Tyler Bertuzzi is second in team scoring with 20 points in 24 games.
Larkin had two goals and six points in three games versus Columbus last season.
Detroit will likely be short-handed against Columbus after defenseman Mike Green (upper body) and forward Darren Helm (lower body) exited Tuesday’s game
Starting in net for the Red Wings will likely be Jon Bernier. His stats on the season are: 5-5-2 W-L | 3.24 GAA | 0.891 SV% | 0 SO
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets, however, are coming off a season-high goal output and are seeking to win three straight for the first time when they host the Detroit Red Wings in Thursday’s finale of a three-game homestand.
In their last game, Blue Jackets F Emil Bemstrom tied the franchise record for a rookie with a five-game point streak. He has been impressive so far and his scoring has been a big reason the Blue Jackets have been on a winning streak.
Top gun Center Pierre-Luc Dubois scored twice and set up another tally Tuesday, lifting his team-high totals to nine goals and 15 points.
Starting in net for the Columbus Blue Jackets will likely be Joonas Korpisalo. His stats on the season are: 8-7-1 W-L | 2.97 GAA | 0.9 SV% | 0 SO
