The Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets face off on Monday in an NHL showdown at Nationwide Arena. 

Red Wings Offense Looks to Continue Success

The Red Wings have been strong to start the season and even though they have a 1-1 record they have scored nine goals total. In the last game against the Tampa Bay Lightning,  the Red Wings scored six goals against the Tampa Bay Lightning and that was enough for the victory. Alex DeBrincat had a strong game in the last one scoring two goals and adding an assist. Dylan Larkin had seven shots on goal and an assist. Even though the offense has found success  the defense hasn’t been exactly lights out and is something that could be improved upon in this game. 

Blue Jackets Look to Build on Last Game

The Blue Jackets sure looked impressive in the last game and they currently sit with a 1-1 record. The Blue Jackets scored five give goals against the New York Rangers and ended up winning by two goals. Boone Jenner had quite the game finishing with three goals and four shots on goal. Johnny Gaudreau had a strong game finishing with two assists and they are going to need the offense to be good again in this game. 

Shane’s Free Pick

These are two teams who both have a ton of confidence right now and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. The Red Wings scored six goals in the last game and they are going to have no issue running up the score again here. Look for the Blue Jackets to also have no issue running up the score, and this game is going to go over the total. Back the over to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
