The battle for a place in the playoffs in the Western Conference looks set to go down to the wire. The Winnipeg Jets currently sit eighth in the standings, but they come into this game after losing each of their previous two. Over their last ten, they have won on five occasions, with their home record standing at 22-12-2.

However, there will need to be a response this weekend, as the Jets were easily beaten in their most recent game. On that occasion, the San Jose Sharks ran out comfortable 3-0 home winners.

Meanwhile, the Detroit Red Wings come into this game sitting 13th in the Eastern Conference standings. They have won just four of their last six games in the NHL, and they have gone 14-17-5 on their travels. They aren’t completely out of the playoff race in the East, but it would need a minor miracle.

The Red Wings should come into this confident, as they picked up a fine 7-4 win in their previous game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. David Perron was in excellent form on that evening, as he scored three times.


This is an interesting Friday night showdown between the Red Wings and Jets. However, we will take a chance on the Red Wings, as they have won each of their last two against the Jets, and three of the previous four.
