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