The Blue Jackets will begin their west coast road trip with the first stop being in Los Angeles to take on the Kings.
Both teams enter play with back to back wins after their slow start to the season.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets started the season off 0-2 with losses to the Bruins and Sharks, both on close calls.
Since then, they got a full week off and the time off couldn’t have worked out better for this team. Columbus has put together back to back wins over the Chicago Blackhawks and then against the Dallas Stars in a back to back.
Defenseman Zach Werenski is making quite the statement early as he has become the first player in franchise history to start his NHL career with a 4 point streak. Werenski has a pair of goals and 3 assists in the 4 game span.
G Sergei Bobrovsky has been a huge key to this turnaround as well. Bobrovsky was knocked around against the Bruins, but has done a phenomenal job in the following 3 contests as he’s allowed 4 goals in the 3 games.
He’s had some solid success against the Kings, holding just a 2.28 GAA. However, despite that Bobrovsky is just 2-4-1 in his career against Los Angeles.
Los Angeles Kings
The Kings have put together back to back wins after their abysmal 0-3 start as they have found an offensive spark in Tanner Pearson.
Pearson, who was suspended for the first two games of the season, has 4 goals and an assist in his time back. He tallied a goal in the Kings 4-3 win over the Canucks in a shootout on Saturday.
The early season hasn’t been easy for the Kings, as they lost Jonathan Quick to an injury in their loss to the Sharks on opening night.
In his place, Peter Budaj is starting to find his rhythm. Budaj was clutch in the shootout as he stopped all 3 shots and his experience against Columbus will bode well for him here.
Budaj has gone 8-5 in his career against Columbus as he continues to try and find his rhythm early in the season.
