Why it Matters

  • The Red Wings are currently sitting at 9-8-3 at home and 16-15-7 overall this season.
  • On the other hand, the Jets have a strong record on the road at 10-7-1 and overall at 26-13-1.
  • The Red Wings have had a brutal schedule recently, playing back-to-back games and three games in four days.
  • Despite his recent success, the Red Wings have sent rookie forward Elmer Soderblom to the Grand Rapids Griffins to make room for returning player Tyler Bertuzzi.

Detroit Red Wings vs. Jets Prediction

Despite the Red Wings' recent losing streak, the return of Tyler Bertuzzi and a few days' rest might be just what they need to upset the Jets. With a strong defensive team like the Jets, the game is predicted to go Under 6.0 goals with Ville Husso in goal for the Red Wings. The Red Wings are picked to win both the Moneyline and spread.
