Columbus Blue Jackets
Three wins out of their last four have the Blue Jackets in first place the Metropolitan Division with 16 points in 12 games. Columbus’ latest win was a 4–3 shootout victory against the Bruins on Monday.
That win was a little high-scoring for the Jackets, who average just 2.5 goals allowed per game, the fourth-best mark in the NHL.
This is a good, balanced team that can win in a variety of ways, though. Sergei Bobrovsky was back in the net after taking a game off when the Blue Jackets lost 4–1 in St. Louis. He should be all set for Thursday’s matchup with Florida, too.
The Panthers have also been off since Monday but they didn’t have as good a result, losing 8–5 on home ice against the other team that calls Florida home.
The Lightning scored early and often against the Panthers, who are a bit inept on the defensive side of the ice.
Florida did improve their goals per game mark, now 3.6, the sixth-best mark in the NHL. That doesn’t look at good when you give up 3.9, though. And that is the challenge for Florida, how to maintain the offensive prowess while solidifying the defense.
