Columbus Blue Jackets vs. New York Rangers, 3-20

NEW YORK NY – MARCH 20 Boone Jenner

NEW YORK NY – MARCH 20 Boone Jenner

Goalie Probables: The Blue Jackets will send out Sergei Bobrovsky and the Rangers will counter with Henrik Lundqvist. The Blue Jackets played the Rangers at both their worst (during October) and best (during November). Eastern Conference and 7-0 in their last 7 overall. The Columbus Blue Jackets have allowed three or less goals in 10 of their last 14 games.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have been on a roll of late as they will enter their game against the Bruins on Monday night having won their last seven games in a row and they have outscored their foes 28-15 in those games. He'll head into his next start with a 2.94 goals-against-average and a.915 save percentage. In his career, he has gone 102-79 with a 2.49 GAA on the road and 53-45 with a 2.42 GAA against the Metro Division, while against the Rangers he has gone 15-5 with a 2.27 GAA. The Blue Jackets are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in NY and the over is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings.

Columbus has converted on just 15.3 percent of its power play chances this year, a figure that places them in the bottom- overall among National Hockey League teams.

NY players have been sent to the penalty box 3.5 times per game in total this season, and 2.4 per game over their last five home outings.

Henrik Lundqvist has stopped 29.2 shots per game as the top netminder in goal for NY. Michael Grabner leads NY with 25 goals, Mats Zuccarello has 34 assists and Pavel Buchnevich has 123 shots on goal. The New York Rangers are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 21.3 percent of their power play opportunities. At the defensive end of the ice, they have been poor as they come in ranked 25th in goals allowed, giving up 3.14 gpg, while also ranking 30th in shots allowed (35.1 spg) and 7th in penalty kill, allowing teams to convert on 17.4% of their chances. NY has played better at home than on the road, but they have been struggling overall of late, while the Blue Jackets have won their last seven games in a row. I'll take a stab with the plus money and the rested home team. I look for Columbus to pick up a huge win in this one.
