Columbus Blue Jackets DFS Spin

Joonas Korpisalo allowed one goal on 20 shots in Tuesday’s 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings. This was a big win for the Blue Jackets, as it put their five-game winless streak to bed on the day that GM Jarmo Kekalainen gave head coach John Tortorella a vote of confidence. Korpisalo gave up a power play goal to Anthony Mantha but that was it. He has a 6-7-4 record with a 3.13 goals-against-average and a .896 save percentage this season. The 26-year-old has given up two goals or fewer in three of his last four outings.

Dallas Stars DFS Spin

Anton Khudobin allowed one goal on 18 shots during Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Lightning’s first goal, which was scored by Ondrej Palat, came on the power play while their second goal, scored by Yanni Gourde, was put into an empty net. Despite allowing two goals or fewer in three of his last four outings, Khudobin has just one win during that time. The 34-year-old owns a 4-6-1 record with a 2.55 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season. The Stars are struggling really badly right now and that’s not helping the veteran’s fantasy stock.

Blue Jackets vs. Stars NHL Prediction

The under has cashed in nine of the last 12 meetings between these two teams in Dallas and is 7-2 in the last nine meetings between the Blue Jackets and the Stars overall. The under is also 4-0 in the Blue Jackets’ last four games overall, is 15-5-1 in their last 21 road games and is 11-4-1 in their last 16 games as a road underdog. On the other side, the under is 5-0 in the Stars’ last five games overall and is 39-18-5 in their last 62 games as a home favorite.
