Currently leading the Central Division with a record of 41-19-3, Detroit will battle the Columbus Blue Jackets (18-37-7) tomorrow night at Nationwide Arena (7:00 p.m. – FSD+ &  WXYT 1270 AM). The Red Wings’ next home game is scheduled to be played on Friday night versus the Minnesota Wild (puck drop – 7:30 p.m.).
