As for the Blue Jackets, they're 6-0 in their last six games playing the fourth game of a 4-in-6 situation but that trend seems destined to fall. Something more reliable is a team's record following wins because it gives bettors an indication of how consistent said team is, and Columbus is 0-4 in its last four games following a victory.

Cam Ward did allow three goals on 25 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Sabres on Tuesday but the 32-year-old is 2-1-2 in his last five starts and should play well tonight, even though he's 4-4-1 with a 2.79 goals-against averages versus Columbus.
