Tuesday night, February 12th brings you an exciting Eastern Conference matchup as the Washington Capitals travel to the Buckeye State to face off against the Columbus Blue Jackets live from the Nationwide Arena. Columbus won the last meeting between these two teams last month 2-1 in overtime.
The Capitals have won three out of their last five games prior to Monday nights game with the Los Angeles Kings and are sitting pretty in a playoff spot at the moment. This will be the second game of a back to back that involves them traveling from Washington overnight, so tired legs may be an issue for the Caps.
Washington’s leading scorer is the one and only Alex Ovechkin who has 37 goals and 24 assists so far on the year. Projected starting goalie Phoenix Copley comes in with a 11-5-3 record with a 2.97 GAA and a .904 save percentage.
Injury Report: The Capitals have no injuries to report for Tuesday nights game.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets are riding a nice little three game win streak after their triumphs over Colorado, Arizona and Vegas in their past three games. This is a team with a winning home record, but they haven’t been overwhelmingly all that great on home ice.
RW Cam Atkinson is the Jackets leading goal scorer at this junction of the season with 31, while their overall points leader is LW Artemi Panarin who has 21 goals and 42 assists. Projected starting goalie Sergei Bobrovsky comes in with a 22-16-1 record with a 2.98 GAA and a .901 save percentage.
Injury Report: C Bandon Dubinsky is listed as “questionable” for Tuesday night.

Free Washington Capitals vs. Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Prediction:
I’m pretty much thinking of this game as a pick ’em, it definitely has that feel to it. One team is slightly better record wise, and Washington has as many road wins as Columbus has home wins, so there is really no clear cut favorite in this game. No injuries to blame things on, this is the type of hockey game that is exceptionally fun to watch. Playoff seeding is most definitely on the line in this one.
With all of that out of the way, take Washington to win this game on the road. They have been slowly but surely looking like their Stanley Cup winning form once again.
