Predators at Blue Jackets – This may be the first time in page history we are recommending Columbus as a team to watch. But the Jackets grabbed 16 of a possible 20 points in their last 10 games (6-0-4) by the weekend, so it’s worth a look to see what’s up with the perennial doormat. Tuesday, 7 p.m., Fox Sports Tennessee, Fox Sports Ohio.

Wild at Red Wings – Both teams were on two-game winning streaks by Sunday and were scrapping over fifth place in the Western Conference. Wednesday, 7:30 p.m., TSN2, NBCSN.

Bruins at Leafs – If Toronto is to have any hope of turning itself around, it needs at least one win out of this home-and-home series with its nemesis Boston, which starts here. Saturday, 7 p.m., CBC.
