The NHL is back in action today as the New York Rangers will clash with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Rangers are heading into this game after a 4-1 defeat in the game against the Golden Knights.
And on the other side, the Blue Jackets lost in the home game against the Coyotes.
New York Rangers Form
The Rangers have been playing better in recent weeks. Moreover, their recent record stands at 4-2. However, they dropped that as they lost in the game against the Golden Knights.
Also, Rangers’ point leader Artemi Panarin has been held pointless in two straight games. However, he still has eight points in his last six games. Now the 28 years old will be facing his old club and this is a good chance for brilliance against them.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rangers score an average of 3.3 goals, good for seventh in the NHL. And on the defensive side of the ice, they are allowing an average of 3.3 goals, placing them 25th overall.
Columbus Blue Jackets Form
The Blue Jackets are not playing well at the moment. To be more specific, they need to start picking up some wins as the crisis point is near. Moreover, they have lost their last two games. Also, their recent record stands at 1-3 which is not good enough. Furthermore, they need to improve their defensive game as they conceded 4 goals in the game against the Coyotes in their last game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Blue Jackets of 2.5 goals per game which is enough for the 28th spot in the NHL in scoring. Also, they are allowing an average of three goals, positioning them 19th overall.
The Rangers have been playing well in recent weeks. However, they lost their last game and now are facing a team that needs to win. And on the other side, the Blue Jackets need to win a game. Also, they are at home and I expect them to take this opportunity. Take Columbus in this one.
