Red Wings-Blue Jackets morning skate Tweets and articles: Coreau starts as Wings tangle with Columbus

The Red Wings don’t usually hold a morning skate when playing back-to-back games, but after last night’s 4-0 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights, the Wings found themselves on the ice in Columbus this morning, per the Free Press’s Helene St. James…

And the Detroit News’s Ted Kulfan:

The Wings face the Blue Jackets this evening (7:00 PM EST on FSD Plus/FS Ohio/Sportsnet/TVA Sports/97.1 FM).’s Brian Hedger penned a fine game preview this morning

Columbus has won its past four games at Nationwide Arena and is now 21-11-2 on home ice. Conversely, the Blue Jackets are 14-17-3 on the road. … Columbus won for just the 11th time when the opponent scores the game’s first goal, improving to 11-18-1 in that scenario.

  1. Seems like a tough game for the Wings but have a habit of having a head scratching good game they may pull a few rabbits out of the hat.

    It is a Road game and that should help for some odd reason.
