The Red Wings head into NationPam Arena in Columbus to take on the Blue Jackets for the first game of a home-and-home series. The Red Wings have taken the first two meetings of the series this season and will look to keep that streak alive against a Columbus team that has floundered to third worst in the conference. Up until the first meeting between these two teams, Columbus was 14-6-0 and has gone 6-14-3 since. Talk about a turn of events for a team, they've pretty much flipped their record since. But, that's also no reason to overlook a team and automatically expect two points.
Puck drops at 7:00 PM ET and the game will air on FS-D. Comment away below and GO RED WINGS!
