Friday the 13th Pregame Notes


It’s Friday the 13th and the Red Wings are hoping it won’t be unlucky for them as they face the Blue Jackets in Columbus. By my records, Detroit is 3-2-1 in franchise history on Friday the 13th, with a two-game losing streak.

Derek Meech comes into the Wings’ lineup to replace the injured Brett Lebda. That’s the only lineup change for the Red Wings as Chris Osgood gets a second start in as many nights.

Steve Mason gets the start for Columbus, returning from a bout with mono.
