Columbus is 6-1 their last 7 games, 5-2 their last 7 games against the Rangers, 4-1 their last 5 games on the road & 5-0 their last 5 games against the Eastern Conference. New York is 4-1 their last 5 games & 5-0 their last 5 games against the Eastern Conference. I like Columbus here !
Rangers won their last five matches at home. In those games were scored 39 goals (7.80 on average). In the last five games between the Rangers and the Jackets were scored 38 goals (7.60 on average). Columbus scored 8 goals in their last two matches. Score Prediction: 4:3 Columbus Victory.
Columbus 8-2 ML last 10 overall. They are sending a callup goalie to protect the net vs Rangers. Rangers also have a youngster who's only starting his 3rd game. He did win the last 2. He gives up 3 GA. Rangers won their last 2 Sunday games. The combined score has hit 5 or more goals 5 straight games. Rangers can score. Blue Jackets have a good defense. Taking home team to prevail tonight.
