The Detroit Red Wings are looking to pick up a win in their contest against the Winnipeg Jets. They are playing their second game in as many nights, getting on a plane and heading west to face off against the Jets.
The Detroit Red Wings end of the season effort has been putrid. At the same time, the team is already without netminder Ville Husso who is on the Injured Reserve (IR). They trust their netminder duties to Alex Nedeljkovic and Magnus Hellberg, who are fighting for the future of the backup spot.
But the Red Wings are relying on Dylan Larkin to get the job done offensively, as he has been pretty hot as of late. Maybe not as David Perron, who had a hat trick against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.
It will be interesting to see how the Red Wings match up against the Jets when things got a little feisty the last time that they squared off. It will be interesting to see how things go with the Red Wings as they try to outmatch the Jets and avoid another loss.
Detroit Red Wings game information and prediction vs. Jets
The Jets have relied on Kyle Connor and Mark Scheifele for most of their offense. Blake Wheeler has been a welcome sight after he returned to the Jets lineup. The Jets have several offensively gifted players, and the Red Wings will have to quiet them.
On top of that, the Red Wings must find ways to get their offense working with a really steady goalie between the pipes for Winnipeg. Connor Hellebuyck is a solid goalie, and the Red Wings will have their work cut out for them.
