The Columbus Blue Jackets look for another victory to get back to a .500 record. The Columbus Blue Jackets are averaging 1.5 goals per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities. Boone Jenner leads Columbus with one goal, Michael Del Zotto has two assists and Zach Werenski has nine shots on goal. Defensively, the Columbus Blue Jackets are allowing four goals per game and are killing 100 percent of their opponents power plays. Joonas Korpisalo has given up two goals on 34 shots faced and Elvis Merzlikins has allowed five goals on 33 shots.
The Detroit Red Wings look for a win as well to get back to a .500 record. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging two goals per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities.

The Blue Jackets are 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The Red Wings are 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 9-20 in their last 29 home games. The under is 9-4-2 in Blue Jackets last 15 overall. The under is 4-0-1 in Red Wings last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The Blue Jackets are 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Detroit and 21-6 in the last 27 meetings.
I gave the Detroit Red Wings a chance yesterday and they let me down as expected. The Red Wings just can't get out of their own way and have had issues through three games finding the back of the net. The Columbus Blue Jackets were in control of yesterdays victory from the start despite being outplayed in some areas, and usually the better team has been more success on the end of a back to back, as they kind of know what to expect this time. I'll take the Blue Jackets and the PL for max betting value.
