Columbus Blue Jackets
The Ohio club, in the Metropolitan Division’s standings, is now one point ahead of Philadelphia.
After a February 1 Buffalo defeat in extra time (1-2), Columbus played a short stretch of three winning games.
Jackets were as good at the beginning of the year (10 wins in 12 games, 6 wins in a row), so bad now – 5 losses in a row. And let the team caught three points, it had to win at least three opponents. Now Columbus is waiting for a difficult visit to Philadelphia, which he has so far lost both matches this season, conceding them 10 pucks.
The guests have a chance, but they are few. Flyers look much better and more confident and Jackets still suffer and risk even leaving the top 8 of the East.
The team from Pennsylvania is now in fifth position in the Metropolitan Division standings. This team has 71 points on their roster.
Recently, the team has won a little more than lost. And if it weren’t for the sudden loss of points, it would be 1-2 lines higher for Flyers. The last 7 wins Philadelphia won with a difference of at least 3 (!) pucks. And Florida Panthers and Washington Capitals destroyed, and on the road – 6:2 and 7:2. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh Penguins (3:0), among others, was defeated at home.
Obviously, the Flyers are capable of much, but as if they had not yet realized it. A match with a direct competitor should give them a head start. Losing points can be expensive, so you must use the experience of fresh victories and win the most important match.
- Columbus Blue Jackets: C. Atkinson, S. Jones, R. Murray, A. Wennberg, J. Anderson, J. Korpisalo, A. Texier
- Philadelphia Flyers: S. Gostisbehere, C. Hart, S. Morin, O. Lindblom
Jackets vs Flyers Prediction
In the Wells Fargo Center arena, motivated hosts will have a great chance to improve their tournament position, but they won’t be able to score much.
According to the results of home meetings, Flyers are in third line in the entire championship, so it will be difficult for those in crisis Blue Jackets to win. While Columbus is trying to get their game back, the home team can already decide the fate of two points.
Our prediction: Philadelphia Flyers will win.
