The Dallas Stars will continue to try and find some kind of momentum or rhythm to get themselves going in a season which has been one to forget. They do have the team on paper to make a run however, and if the Stars want to have any chance of making a run at a playoff spot they will need to be picking up wins against teams like the Columbus Blue Jackets.
On the other side of things on Sunday will be the Blue Jackets who looked to have something going earlier in the season, but this team has completely fallen off as of late and now it looks like the Blue Jackets will be missing out on the playoffs once again.
The last 4 games that the Stars have played really encapsulate the inconsistency of this team with losses being followed by huge blow-out wins making it hard to determine just how good this team is at times.
One of the biggest problems for this Stars team in 2021 has been a situation which is completely out of their hands and that is the injuries, as the Stars will be without Seguin, Bishop and Radulov which are all key injuries with all three of those players being able to make a significant impact when on the ice.
Once again, Anton Khudobin should be in net here for the Stars and he has been the definition of mediocre this year and he really has not been the reason this team has been winning or losing games this season. The Columbus Blue Jackets do not possess a super scary type of offense, so he should be able to build upon those numbers this Sunday afternoon.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Columbus Blue Jackets have been one of the worst teams in hockey over the last month only picking up 3 wins in their last 13 games and a run like that, especially in a shortened season, will put you out of playoff contention in a hurry.
They were quite competitive in their last game against the Panthers, though, and that should give this Columbus team some belief they can pick up the home victory this Sunday over a Dallas team who has also been struggling.
The Blue Jackets have a few guys playing decent in terms of offense, but the guy I would look out for in a game like this would be Boone Jenner, as he does have the ability to score netting 8 goals this season, but his physical play style also helps wear opponents down and that could be key in a game that is projected to be very tight.

Free Dallas Stars vs. Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Prediction:
This should be a tightly contested game and although I am not a massive fan of either net-minder I do not see this being some kind of shootout either.
