The Columbus Blue Jackets look for a nice win after splitting their last eight games. The Columbus Blue Jackets are averaging 2.3 goals per game and are scoring on 18.2 percent of their power plays. Scott Hartnell leads Columbus with seven goals, Brandon Dubinsky has seven assists and Boone Jenner has 41 shots on goal. Defensively, the Columbus Blue Jackets are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 73.5 percent of their power play chances. Curtis McElhinney has allowed 10 goals on 113 shots faced and Sergei Bobrovsky has given up 39 goals on 335 shots. Bobrovsky has given up seven goals in his last three games.
The Canucks are 0-4 in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-1 in their last 6 Tuesday games. The Blue Jackets are 0-5 in their last 5 home games and 7-1 in their last 8 vs. Pacific. The Canucks are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Columbus and 14-4 in the last 18 meetings overall.
The Canucks have owned the Blue Jackets over the years, and Columbus hasn't been great on its home ice as of late. I like the Canucks to get the job done here on the road.
