Tuesday's NHL Prediction
The Columbus Blue Jackets look to get out of the bottom of the Central Division on Tuesday when they host the Montreal Canadiens.
The Blue Jackets are just 6-4-0 on the season for 12 points, putting them at the bottom of the Central. The Jackets have scored 24 goals and allowed 29 on the year. They are 3-3-0 at home.
Montreal is 7-3-1 on the season and leading the Northeast Division. The Canadiens have scored 37 goals on the year and allowed just 29. They are 2-1-1 on the road this season.
Here is a look at the trends and my pick for Tuesday’s game.
Montreal Canadiens at Columbus Blue Jackets, 7PM ET
Trends actually favor the Blue Jackets in this game as Montreal is just 1-4 in their last five against the Central and 2-6 in their last eight games as a road favorite.
Columbus is 9-0 in their last nine games after allowing 5 goals or more in their previous game and 9-3 in their last 12 vs. the Northeast Division.
