The Columbus Blue Jackets take on the Detroit Red Wings tonight in Hockeytown, where the Red Wings have won a franchise best 15 straight games, five shy of the all-time NHL record of 20 straight by the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers.

If the Blue Jackets win, it'll be the second lengthy streak they've snapped this season against the Red Wings. The first, a 4-1 win on October 25, snapped their own eight game losing streak to start the season.

Detroit won the other match up against the Blue Jackets on October 21, 5-2. This will be the third of six games between the two Central Division foes this season. Detroit has more than twice the points as the Jackets (63-31) and are a point behind the Blackhawks for the most in the NHL. The Blue Jackets are the NHL's worst team.

Puck drop is at 7:00 p.m.
