Game Thread: Blue Jackets vs. Red Wings

Loading Scores

Coming off a disappointing performance against the Philadelphia Flyers, the Detroit Red Wings host their final home game of the regular season against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

With the eight playoff teams set, the battle becomes where the Red Wings will finish. They currently stand seventh, and the loss on Sunday means best they can hope for now is fifth (they would lose the wins tiebreaker to Phoenix even if they won their three remaining games).

Jimmy Howard makes his return to goal tonight after what may have been Chris Osgood's final appearance this year. Pavel Datsuyk has a three game scoring streak coming into tonight. Look for Henrik Zetterberg to try to break out of his seven-game goalless streak (second-longest streak of the year for him).

Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30. The game is on Fox Sports Detroit and Fox Sports Ohio. Please feel free to comment below.
