The Columbus Blue Jackets and Colorado Avalanche will face each other in back to back nights with the first matchup going down on Wednesday night. The Avalanche have been slowly getting back to their winning ways as they finish off their homestand on Wednesday.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets are off a shootout win against the New Jersey Devils on Sunday. Columbus once again continues to stay in games even when they fall behind early. Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to play a role in who is in the starting lineup and Max Domi will not be playing on Wednesday after testing positive for COVID-19. He most likely will not play in the rematch either.
Columbus is also dealing with some injuries on the back line. They most likely will be without defensive star Adam Boqvist and Dean Kukan who has a fractured wrist.
Columbus has won three of the last five games but comes into this game as slight underdogs.
On the other hand, the Colorado Avalanche are starting to pick up on some notable wins. They come into this Wednesday contest taking down the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. However the notable win came at a cost for them.
Colorado will be dealing with some injuries heading into this game as Mikko Rantanen will not suit up and miss third straight game. Andre Burakovsky will be missing his first game as well as Cale Makar as they both suffered injuries in the Wild game.
However, enough of the bad news, Colorado is still the heavy favorite in this game for a reason. The Avs are scoring nearly three goals per game but continue to struggle on the power play with only scoring on 12.9% of chances.
