The Columbus Blue Jackets and New York Rangers meet Sunday in NHL action at Madison Square Garden. The Columbus Blue Jackets look to rebound from a 2-4 record. The New York Rangers look to build on their 3-1-1 start.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 0 percent of their power play opportunities. Johnny Gaudreau leads Columbus with 4 goals, Yegor Chinakhov has 4 assists and Zach Werenski has 22 shots on goal. Defensively, the Columbus Blue Jackets are allowing 4.3 goals per game and are killing 88.9 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Daniil Tarasov has allowed 9 goals on 82 shots faced, and Elvis Merzlikins has given up 17 goals on 125 shots.

The New York Rangers are averaging 3.8 goals per game and are scoring on 25 percent of their power play opportunities. Mika Zibanejad leads New York with 4 goals, Artmei Panarin has 8 assists, and Mika Zibanejad has 27 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Rangers are allowing 3 goals per game and are killing 76.5 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Igor Shesterkin has allowed 11 goals on 111 shots faced, and Jaroslav Halak has given up 3 goals on 33 shots.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have been a complete mess through 6 games, and going on the road on the end of a back to back doesn’t help matters. The Columbus Blue Jackets have allowed at least 3 goals through all 6 games this season, getting absolutely killed defensively. The New York Rangers have shown a balanced attack up to this point, and they’re well rested given that they haven’t played since Thursday. This should be a routine win for the home team. Give me the Rangers and the PL for max betting value.
