Playing in the second half of back-to-back games, the Detroit Red Wings lost 2-1 against the Blue Jackets on Saturday afternoon at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. It marked the first game since the death of Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch, who passed away on Friday at the age of 84. Former Wild forward Thomas Vanek scored the lone goal for the Wings and goaltender Petr Mrazek was outstanding, making 37 saves. Detroit is attempting to salvage the final game of a three-game road trip; the Red Wings are 0-2-0 so far on the trip and have been outscored 8-4 in those games.
• Vanek scored 93 points in two seasons (154 games) with the Wild from 2014-16.
• Red Wings assistant coach John Torchetti served as Minnesota's head coach for the final 27 games of last season, leading the Wild to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
• Red Wings defenseman Nick Jensen is from St. Paul and played three seasons at St. Cloud State University.
