When Columbus play away, it is painful to watch - five defeats in their last five away games. However, at home, the Blue Jackets can be said to be shining - four wins in a row. A disappointing road trip dropped them to ninth place in the East and fifth in the Capital One division with 26 points. The Blue Jackets lost 4-5 to Toronto in the last game.
Anaheim are fighting with Calgary for the first position in the Pacific Division table, but the difference between the opponents is three points. Had the Ducks not lost to Calgary and Washington in the shootout, they would already have overtaken their rival. Anaheim faced Buffalo away in their last game. The Ducks played some very good hockey and deservedly added two more points (2-0).
Expert Betting Tips
Although Columbus have not performed at their best in away games, we will give them our preference. They have won their last four home games, and we think they will win their fifth. Anaheim are undeniably a tough club, and the Ducks will have no problem putting up a good fight.
