The Detroit Red Wings and the Columbus Blue Jackets meet in NHL action from Nationwide Arena on Saturday.

The Detroit Red Wings will look to build some momentum after a 7-4 win over San Jose last time out. Dominik Kubalik leads Detroit in scoring with 20 points including a team-high 8 goals and 12 assists while Dylan Larkin is just behind with 7 goals and 12 assists for his 19 points. David Perron has 14 points with 6 goals and 8 assists and Filip Hronek has 10 assists. Ville Husso has gone 6-2-3 with a 2.69 GAA and a .912 save percentage while Alex Nedeljkovic is 2-3-1 with a 4.34 GAA and an .873 save percentage between the pipes for Detroit this season.

The Columbus Blue Jackets will try to build on back-to-back wins after a 6-4 win over Montreal last time out. Johnny Gaudreau has a team-high 14 points with a team-high 6 goals and 8 assists while Boone Jennerhas 12 poitns with a team-high 7 goals and Yegor Chinakhov has 9 points with 7 assists. Elvis Merzlikins has gone 2-5 with a 4.74 GAA and an .864 save percentage while Joonas Korpisalo is 3-1-1 with a 3.76 GAA and a .909 save percentage and Daniil Tarasov has gone 1-3 with a 3.57 GAA and an .893 save percentage in goal for Columbus this year.

Detroit is 27-82 in their last 109 road games and 3-9 in their last 12 Saturday games while the over is 6-2-1 in their last 9 road games. Columbus is 1-4 in their last 5 games played on 1 day’s rest and 1-6 in their last 7 games after scoring 5 or more goals in the previous game while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record.

I get the case to be made either way here, but I’m looking at the over here. The Red Wings’ struggles on the road are well-documented and I don’t see it changing here against a Blue Jackets team that’s started to string some successful performances together in recent games. On the other side, I don’t trust the Blue Jackets’ goaltending as they’ve been involved in some high-scoring affairs themselves, so give me the over here. .
