In our prediction for the Vegas – Columbus match on January 11, we’ll talk about whether Golden Knights can open the Jackets’ defense more than three times

Columbus Blue Jackets 21-16-8

“Columbus” will spend the last match away and, of course, he will try to complete the departure on a major note. The team has already celebrated success in the bouts with Los Angeles (4: 2) and Anaheim (4: 3), and only in the last meeting with San Jose the Jackets lost – 1: 3. We emphasize that the team of John Tortorella has one of the best defenses in the League and misses an average of two or three goals per game, which is not enough in the realities of the NHL.

Vegas Golden Knights 24-17-6

Vegas had a great start to the home streak and won four games in a row, but then unexpectedly suffered two setbacks. The team first in a tense struggle lost to Pittsburgh with a score of 3: 4, and after that it suffered a major defeat from Los Angeles, scoring just two goals – 2: 5. Despite this, the Knights occupy the fifth place in the Western Conference, having 54 points. Note that exactly the same points have “Arizona” and “Colorado.”

  • “Los Angeles” in two matches scored less than four goals.
  • Over the course of 16 meetings, Columbus has not missed more than three times.

Columbus Blue Jackets vs Vegas Golden Knights Predictions

We think that even with such a strong attack that Vegas has, the hosts will not be able to go through the opponent’s defensive redoubts and hit the gate more than three times. “Columbus” plays very defensively in defense and allows the opponent to do little in his own zone, even on the road.
