The Columbus Blue Jackets also look for consistency after splitting their last 14 games. The Columbus Blue Jackets are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 17.2 percent of their power plays. Brandon Saad leads Columbus with 22 goals, Scott Hartnell has 20 assists and Boone Jenner has 169 shots on goal. Defensively, the Columbus Blue Jackets are allowing three goals per game and are killing 80.5 percent of their power play chances. Sergei Bobrovsky has allowed 67 goals on 753 shots faced and Joonas Korpisalo has given up 54 goals on 657 shots. Korpisalo has allowed 10 goals in his last three games.

The Devils are 0-4 in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-5 in their last 7 vs. Metropolitan. The Blue Jackets are 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-5 in their last 5 vs. Metropolitan. The Devils are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings.

The Blue Jackets have had the Devils number as of late and are playing the more consistent hockey overall. I like Columbus to get the job done on its home ice.
