The Columbus Blue Jackets and Nashville Predators meet Saturday in NHL action at the Bridgestone Arena.
The Columbus Blue Jackets look for a win after losing to the Predators in their season opener. The Columbus Blue Jackets are averaging one goal per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities. Boone Jenner leads Columbus with one goal, Zach Werenski has four shots on goal and Michael Del Zotto has four shots on goal. Defensively, the Columbus Blue Jackets are allowing three goals per game and are killing 100 percent of their opponents power plays. Joonas Korpisalo has given up two goals on 34 shots faced.
The Nashville Predators look for another win after beating the Blue Jackets on Thursday. The Nashville Predators are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities. Luke Kunin leads Nashville with one goal, Roman Josi has one assist and Ryan Ellis has five shots on goal. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing one goal per game and are killing 100 percent of their opponents power plays. Juuse Saros has allowed one goal on 30 shots faced.
The Blue Jackets are 4-11 in their last 15 road games and 7-19 in their last 26 overall. The under is 8-1-1 in Blue Jackets last 10 road games and 4-1-2 in Blue Jackets last 7 overall. The under is 6-2 in Predators last 8 Saturday games. The Blue Jackets are 5-26 in the last 31 meetings in Nashville and 16-43 in the last 59 meetings. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 43-19 in the last 62 meetings.
It's not easy to beat the same team twice in a short span, but the Nashville Predators were in complete control of the first meeting on Thursday and the defensive effort was there from the start. Playing in Nashville has also been a house of horrors for the Columbus Blue Jackets over the years, as they've won just five of their last 31 meetings. I have no choice but to lay the cheap price with the Preds here.
