The Red Wings return to the Motor City tonight as they gear up for their matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Detroit will aim to end two streaks tonight, their three-game winless streak, as well as Columbus's six-game win streak. Detroit's 4-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs last Saturday may have ceded two important points to a division rival, but as the Red Wings prepare to open a four-game home-stand, help may be on the way. Justin Abdelkader and defenseman Danny DeKeyser could be back in the lineup, and forwards Tomas Tatar and Johan Franzen should be on the ice despite missing practice Monday because of illness.

The last time these two squads met, Jimmy Howard was perfect and the Red Wings offense lit up Columbus, netting five goals. “They’ve got a good team,” Babcock said. “They were really injured. It should be a good game. A lot of fun. We need a bounce back game ourselves. Our energy level should be back.” Detroit will have to play well for sixty minutes as Jackets goalie, Sergei Bobrovsky, has compiled a .943 save percentage and a 1.91 goals-against average over their six-game win streak. 

Welcome to the Detroit Red Wings Game Day Blog, where you can get behind-the-scenes information, thoughts from players and staff, and up-to-date news on anything and everything Red Wings on game day.
