New York enters play with a 1-3-0 record after a 3-1 home loss Tuesday to Toronto. Columbus is 2-1-0 following a 2-1 overtime win at Carolina Tuesday. The Blue Jackets won three of five meetings last year and the total went over four times.

Mika Zijanedad scored his fifth goal of the season in the Rangers' defeat to the Maple Leafs. Pavel Buchnevich and Kevin Shattenkirk assisted on the score. Henrik Lundqvist made 20 saves to take the loss.

Columbus got a game-winning unassisted goal from Sonny Milano to win at the Hurricanes. It was the fourth goal of the season for Milano and second of the night as he opened the game's scoring midway through the third period before Carolina scored the equalizer with 1:35 left in regulation. Sergei Bobrovsky made 37 saves in the victory.

Bet on Rangers vs. Blue Jackets

Bobrovsky is on top of his game and Lundqvist is always capable of a gem. These two squads are defensive-minded and often struggle to score. The under seems like a safe bet here.
