There’s a 9 game schedule this Tuesday with this matchup in Columbus featuring the Stars and Blue Jackets, with Ben Bishop and Sergei Bobrovsky the probable starting goalies.

The Jackets come into this one losers in 3 of their last 4, including back to back losses in LA and Anaheim. Dallas had won 3 in a row before a loss in their last game, a 2-1 heartbreaker in Boston.

Columbus, with 15 points, are in the middle of a tightly packed Metropolitan division that has all but one of it’s 8 teams between 13 and 15 points. The Stars are currently 3rd in the Central with 17 points.

The Blue Jackets have owned this head to head series recently, winning 8 of their last 10, including the last 5, with Dallas’ last win against Columbus in December of 2015. In that same 10 game time frame, the total is 5-5.

Columbus have given up the 7th most goals at 3.64 per game with Dallas all the way down at 27th, giving up 2.57 GPG. On the other side of that equation, the Jackets are 9th in goals for at 3.29 and Dallas is at 21 with 2.93.

Both of these teams are potential playoff teams with solid play in all facets of the game. Both of these goalies can win a game for their team, with enough goal scoring to take care of business.

I expect the Stars to go on the road and stop their losing streak against Blue Jackets in this one. Watch for Jason Spezza to score a couple points and help lead his team to victory and get you some great value on the underdog.
