The NHL is back in action on Sunday as the Columbus Blue Jackets will clash with the New Jersey Devils.
The Blue Jackets will head into this game after a 4-3 win in Philadephia.
On the other side, the Devils enjoyed a dominant home win against the Senators.
Columbus Blue Jackets Form
The Blue Jackets have been struggling lately. Especially at home, their form is not dominant. However, it seems that they turned the tide as they won their last three games. Moreover, they have 4 wins in their last 5 games.
They are on the 2nd spot in the Metro Division and have a very good chance for a playoff spot this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Blue Jackets have an average scoring record of 3.26 goals per game.
Therefore, this record puts them on the 10th spot in the league in scoring.
On the defensive side of the ice, the Blue Jackets are placed on the 20th spot in the league. They have been conceding an average of 3.09 goals per game.
New Jersey Devils Form
The Devils are heading into this game after a home win against the Flyers. Moreover, they played very well and the result of 5-2 was exactly what they deserved. Yet, it will be hard for them as their chances for a playoff spot are average. Also, the main reason behind this is they away from. To be more specific, their away record is 3-15.
Nevertheless, they have a mountain to climb until the end of the regular part of the season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Devils are placed on the 14th spot in the league in scoring. Their average scoring stands at 3.00 goals per game.
On the defensive side of the game, they allow 3.53 goals per game. Therefore, this record puts them on the 27th spot in the scoring defence.
The Devils have a solid record at home. However, their away form is not that good. On the other side, the Blue Jackets are on the 2nd spot in the Metro Division and they had a solid season so far. Therefore, I pick Columbus is this one.
