*Note: This preview and prediction was written Thursday afternoon, prior to the Winnipeg Jets vs Washington Capitals game Thursday evening.
The Jets hit the midway point of their three game road trip Friday night when they visit Joe Louis Arena to take on the Detroit Red Wings.
Both teams are coming off losses and will be looking to right the ship.
The Jets have gotten out of the gates quite slowly with just four wins in their first 10 games and sit sixth in the Central Division. What’s been a killer for the Jets so far this season is their inability to start games quickly.
Far too often, the Jets have found themselves behind early in games and have had to battle back.
It’s worked out a few times with comeback wins over the Hurricanes and Maple Leafs in overtime, but those are a pair of lowly teams as far as the NHL standings are concerned.
Winnipeg did the same thing on Tuesday evening on home ice when they fell behind 2-0 after two periods to the Capitals.
Winnipeg battled back to tie the score at 2-2 late in the third but the Caps countered with a goal with just 30 seconds remaining to earn the 3-2 win.
For the Jets to have any measure of success this year they’re going to have to learn to show up for the opening puck drop and play a full 60 minutes.
Detroit Red Wings
This is a team that is still tough to get a handle on as they’re in a bit of a transitional stage.
Pavel Datsyuk has departed, Henrik Zetterberg is getting up there in years, and there’s a scattering of vets on the limp with injuries including Tomas Vanek, Niklas Kronwall, and Johan Franzen.
On the other hand, Detroit’s seemingly limitless supply of young talent keeps coming up through the ranks to help carry the load.
Andreas Athanasiou has had a respectable start to the season with three goals and four points in nine games, Dylan Larkin is a bit slow out of the gate with five points in 11 games but he will get it going, and Gustav Nyquist who is the oldest of that trio at 27 has put up 9 points so far.
Detroit may have a goaltending controversy on the horizon as well as Petr Mrazek, who is expected to start Friday, and is the team’s number one has been outperformed by veteran Jimmy Howard by a wide margin.
Howard has posted a record of 2-1-0 with a shutout and a spectacular 0.86 GAA and .973 SV%, while Mrazek’s numbers are very pedestrian at 4-3-1, 3.07, and .908.

Free Winnipeg Jets vs. Detroit Red Wings NHL Hockey Prediction:
This looks like a really tough out for the Jets who will be playing their third game in four nights and on the back half of back to back games.
Detroit blew a late lead to the Flyers on Wednesday and ultimately lost in OT, so look for them to buckle down against the Jets.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Red Wings -164
Detroit will be more rested, the Jets are playing a lot of hockey in this stretch with travel mixed in. For a team that has notoriously started games slow this season, this doesn’t stack up well in the Jets’ favour.
