This game might be the worst game of the night when looking at all of the games. However, I really believe we have an edge in this game that can help us win. First off, as the trend showed Florida has a very rough time winning in Columbus. Is this the same Columbus team that has beating them those games? Of course not the injury has hit Columbus hard. However, this Florida team understands it’s struggles in Columbus and you have to wonder if that will play mind games with them if they get down early in the game. The next trend that stood out for me was that Florida has trouble stopping Power Play goals. With that being said Columbus has been getting all kinds of Power Play chances this season and cash in at least one a game. Even as bad as they’ve been this season I firmly believe the Blue Jackets get the win tonight on their home ice. Best of Luck!!!
