Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus continued its strong start with a blowout win in Florida on Thursday. The win comes on the heels of a shootout win in Boston earlier in the week.
Josh Anderson put two past the goaltender of the Panthers, his fourth and fifth goals of the season. He’s the team leader with those five goals and one of eight Blue Jackets with eight or more points on the season.
Columbus’ real strength is holding opponents, however. Sergei Bobrovsky has been a stalwart in the net, allowing just barely over two goals per game. As a team, Columbus allows 2.5 goals per game, which is the fifth-best figure in the NHL.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning want that defense tested against at Amalie Arena, though.
Tampa Bay’s top-scoring offense will welcome in Columbus’ strong defense to Florida. The Lightning average 3.9 goals per game and that’s after an off-night when it scored just one in an overtime loss to the Rangers.
After starting the season 6–0 at home, the Lightning has lost its last two at Amalie Arena. That slide has to stop sooner rather than later. The Lightning is still 10-2-2 and in first place in the Atlantic Division.
NHL Betting Trends:

- Head to Head: Under is 19-6-1 in the last 26 meetings.
- Head to Head: CLB are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Tampa Bay.
Free Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Tampa Bay Lightning Prediction: Tampa Bay’s offense gets it done in the test match.
The offense has only scored one goal in each one of its last two home games, both losses. It’s time to bust out of that little slump and show the Blue Jackets there is still a gap between them and the class of the Eastern Conference.
