Columbus Blue Jackets
Having lost their chances of making the playoffs, Brad Larsen's team has been worse. Columbus lost to Los Angeles, Anaheim, and San Jose, and their road trip to California is just a continuation of their bad stretch. In their last ten games, the Blue Jackets have only three wins and 14th place in the East. Only Philadelphia and Montreal have worse performances in that period.
Unlike Columbus, who had been a contender for eighth place in the Eastern Conference for a while, Ottawa had no such chance all season. That's why the Senators haven't slowed down towards the end of the championship. In their last five games, D.J. Smith's team has won 3 matches. In the previous ten games, they've had five wins. The team ranks fifth in the East.
Expert Betting Tips
Columbus has lost almost all of their games in the last month so they will be highly motivated in their home game against Ottawa.
However, despite their lack of momentum, it's far from certain that the team will be able to win. Throughout the second half of the championship, Ottawa has been performing quite consistently and hasn't slowed down by the end of the regular season. Among the options for the outcome, we can consider a draw in regulation time. In addition, we can take the total under.
