Columbus Blue Jackets

For the first time in a long time, Columbus lost two games in a row, but rivals were quite powerful. First, the Jackets in a bitter struggle lost to Colorado (1:2), and then in overtime they were defeated by Tampa – (1:2).

But even despite the failures, John Tortorella’s wards didn’t miss more than two goals against the scoring teams, which once again confirms the fact that the club has a strong line of defense. That is why the team doesn’t accidentally occupy the 6th place in the East and scored 70 points.

It should again be noted Elvis Merzlikins, who is very confident in the frame, until the euphoria has passed. It remains for the partners to pay a little more attention to the attack, but there is a problem, Houston: defender Jones and Atkinson have dropped out for a long time, but their return is expected in the near future.

Buffalo Sabres

After losing to Anaheim (2:3), Buffalo almost lost to Detroit, as they lost (0:1) in the course of the meeting, but still achieved (3:2) success. It’s also worth noting the actions of Carter Hatton, who reflected 27 shots.

The Sabres are unlikely to fight for the playoffs this season, as they have lost a huge amount of points in recent years, although they started in a great way. Now they are on the 13th line of the Eastern Conference and have only 58 points.

Buffalo became one of those teams that had problems with the supply of hockey sticks from China due to the coronavirus, but this situation is unlikely to directly worsen the situation for the Sabres. However, their affairs are on the decline, and wins happen much less often than defeats. The latter was quite unexpected over the Rangers (3:2).

Jackets vs Sabres Prediction

Columbus is quite capable of dealing with Buffalo away, given how great the wards of the Tortorella are able to play on the defensive and restrain the onslaught of the opponent. But they have problems with the composition. Many players are injured and will not be able to take part in this fight. The Sabres have lost ground recently, but home stands will be able to rehabilitate them. That is why we propose to bet on the Sabres win.

Our prediction: Buffalo Sabres will win.
