Free New York Rangers vs. Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Prediction:
Columbus has gotten the best of the Rangers through their previous 10 meetings with a record of 7-2-1. The over/under has gone 6-4 through the span.
The Blue Jackets have been able to put the puck in the net for an average of 3.80 goals per game during the 10 games while giving up an average of 2.90 to New York.
Through their previous 10 head-to-head matchups, the Rangers have scored six power-play goals on 29 opportunities. Columbus has scored on three of their 25 power-plays.
I’m liking the Rangers to win on the road Thursday. They have been more aggressive on the offensive end of the ice and only give up around have a goal more per game. I see this one staying close, but my money’s on the Rangers.
