Pregame: Jets @ Red Wings – 11/12

Without a home win since October 15, the Red Wings look to get back on track tonight as they host a Winnipeg Jets team that beat them 4-2 a week ago in Manitoba.

Detroit will have Johan Franzen back in the lineup as he returns from the un-named mystery injury that kept him out since late October. He’ll skate on the second line with Darren Helm and Daniel Alfredsson.

To make room for Franzen’s return, Daniel Cleary will be a healthy scratch. He joins Jordin Tootoo and Patrick Eaves out of the lineup.

Jimmy Howard gets the start opposite Ondrej Pavelec.

Stupid stat of the day: The Red Wings haven’t lost at home on November 12 since 1983.

Game time is 7:30 PM on FSD.
