ESPN NHL Scores: Winnipeg Jets vs. Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings are finally back at the bottom of the league, with a 2-6-2 record in their last ten games and sole owners of the 29th spot in the standings. As the season gets further away, after losing two straight to the Canadiens and the Capitals, a trip to Winnipeg makes nothing any easier.

The Winnipeg Jets happily welcome the struggling Wings to town as they fight to unseat the Central Division-leading Nashville Predators. The Jets are 5-5 in their last ten but are 15-6-2 at home this season.

Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings are ready to start winning again, despite the fans’ pleas to lose for Hughes (Jack Hughes, the projected number 1 pick), considering the return of Mike Green to the lineup. The Red Wings winning record when Green is on the ice, 13-8-2, is downright confusing, but it is a fact.

When the Red Wings have a balance on the back end, he can carry the puck out of the zone that makes the difference. The Red Wings enjoy an extra nine shots per game, when Green is playing, which will help boost the 28th ranked CorsiFor% in the league.

Despite their losing ways, the Red Wings still see glimmers of hope for the future. The supposed future Captain of the Red Wings, Dylan Larkin, has taken a massive leap forward this year as he has already eclipsed his goal total from the previous two seasons (16 and 17 goals). His 18 goals and 41 points lead the team, but his 4 OT goals demonstrate a strong work ethic and leadership.

Winnipeg Jets

The Winnipeg Jets are happy to be sitting where they are at in the standings, especially considering they have three games in hand over the Nashville Predators. They currently sit 5th in the conference and would greatly benefit from home-ice-advantage.

To reach the goal of home-ice-advantage, the Winnipeg Jets need to rely on Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele to lead them to victory. With Blake wheelin’ and dealin’ the assists (48 A on the season), it’s been Scheifele racking up the goals (24 goals and 54 points).

While the Jets wait for Hellebuyck to heal, Laurent Brossoit is taking over between the pipes. Brossoit can take solace in the fact that his team has a CorsiFor% above .500 and are currently 8th in the league in goals-for. The Jets also own the 2nd best power play. As Net minding jobs go, this should be one of the more manageable tasks to handle.

Cover the Spread 365

The Detroit Red Wings may not be having a great season, but they are 27-18 against the spread this year. The Wings play a very tight style of hockey, that is built to take into account their lack of firepower. With the return of Mike Green, it’ll be interesting to see if the Red Wings find balance again and start to win.

For the Jets, they do have a lot of firepowers, they need this win, and their back-up goaltender has been excellent, posting a .939 SV% and a 2.11 GAA.

Pick: Detroit Red Wings +1.5, Winnipeg Jets in Moneyline -220, and the Over +6.5.

#RedWings signed defenseman Moritz Seider, their top 2019 pick, to a 3-year entry level contact today. They’ll determine after training camp whether he should play another season in German league or with @griffinshockey

I'm on vacation, but just noticed this morning....Tyler Wright out as #RedWings amateur scouting director. Steve Yzerman likely to replace Wright with Kris Draper, I would think
