The last NHL teams play their first game on Friday night. Two of those teams will take the ice at Nationwide Arena.
The New York Islanders make the trip to Columbus to take on the Blue Jackets. The Blue Jackets won three of the four games played between the two teams.k
New York Islanders
The New York Islanders missed the playoffs last year, and most expect that will probably be the case in this one as they go through a rebuild.
This team is young though and they have a lot of exciting pieces that could really prove to be big in the future.
To win this game the Islanders are going to need to get good goal tending in this game. It’s something that really struggled last year, and they can’t let that be the case again this year.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Columbus Blue Jackets were able to make the playoffs again last year but they were once again disappointed with their first round exit.
This year they had a successful preseason finishing with a 6-0-2 record and will hope to build on that this regular season.
The guy to watch in this game for the Blue Jackets is Artemi Panarin who they acquired from the Blackhawks in a trade.
Look for him to really try and have a nice first game in front of the home crowd.
