The Carolina Hurricanes and Columbus Blue Jackets look to keep pace in the NHL’s Central Division this Sunday, as the Hurricanes travel to Ohio for this matchup with the Blue Jackets.
The Hurricanes had their 4 game winning streak broken last time out against the Chicago Blackhawks, as they fell by a score of 6-4. The Hurricanes have looked decent on defense, though, so I think that may have been a bit of a fluke surrendering 6 goals to the Blackhawks and just looking at their goals against average is not really fair, as they have played some tough opponents thus far.
Look out for Andrei Svechnikov in this game, as he has started the season out quite sharp scoring 6 goals in the first 8 games and this matchup against the Blue Jackets presents as good of an opportunity as any to add to those solid stats.
Columbus Blue Jackets
It has been an up and down season for the Blue Jackets, and it looks like things are going to get worse for them, as they have lost their starting goalie Elvis Merzlikins due to a practice injury and he is now day to day, so his status is up in the air.
Columbus has struggled a bit putting the puck in the net with them scoring 2.5 goals per game and none of their players really standing out in terms of offensive production.

Free Carolina Hurricanes vs. Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Prediction:
The Blue Jackets are a decent enough team, but I think Carolina are just better in most areas and think they get the job done here on Sunday afternoon. This feeling mostly comes from the eye-test watching these two teams play, as it just seems like Carolina has much more talent and with the Blue Jackets possibly having to go with Joonas Korpisalo in net I like the chances of the Hurricanes here.
