New York Rangers
Rangers spend a very weak season. They are based on 11th place in the standings of the Eastern Conference. They still have less chances to qualify for the play-offs, but there is too much competition, although the gap from the eighth place is only 8 points. The last 3 meetings, David Quinn’s players have played for the total less than five goals. They finally managed to normalize the game in defense, due to which their results improved.
In February, the New York Rangers team played 7 matches, of which only 2 were lost. Based on this, we can conclude that she is in good shape. However, it is worth considering the fact that she did not have strong opponents, if you do not take into account the Toronto Maple Leafs club.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The team of John Tortorella gained an incredible game form. Even at the start of the season, Columbus was considered one of the outsiders of the league, and now it is a strongly organised squad. Currently they occupy the 6th place in the standings of the Eastern Conference. This month, the Jackets can not boast of good results, changing from wins to defeats. However, it is worth considering the fact that they lose only to top teams, such as Tampa Bay Lightnings and Colorado Avalanche.
What is most interesting, Columbus has the lowest implementation among all the teams that are in the play-offs zone. But they have a reliable line of defense, which allows them to restrain the attacks of their opponents.
Columbus has a lot of players injured: 8 players are out of the game on Friday, with one players under question.

Rangers vs Blue Jackets Prediction
Columbus promotes a defensive style of play, however John Tortorella will have to reorganize his game pattern due to the health issues of his team.
The Rangers have a poor implementation of scoring chances. Moreover the guests have one of the best scorers – Artemi Panarin, although he lacks stability, so there is no point in waiting for a huge number of goals.
Both teams have problems currently. Besides, both the Rangers and the Jackets will be very tired because of a stressful schedule but our experts advise you to bet on Columbus for they will have a home ice advantage.
Our prediction: Columbus Blue Jackets will win.
