Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Florida Panthers, 7:30PM ET (View Matchup)

Columbus is 16-5 in their last 21 games against Southeast Division opponents and they are 7-3 in their last 10 against the Eastern Conference. Florida is just 1-4 in their last 5 against the Central Division. My pick goes with Columbus on the road as they play in a tougher division, which better explains their struggles. Florida can be tough, but I think Columbus finds a way to win this game.
