The Florida Panthers and the Columbus Blue Jackets meet in NHL action from Nationwide Arena on Tuesday night.

The Florida Panthers will look to build off of back-to-back wins over Chicago, including a 5-4 win over the Blackhawks but the Panthers have had a week off coming into this game. Patric Hornqvist and Jonathan Huberdeau each have a team-high 4 points with Hornqvist logging 3 goals while Huberdeau have 3 asists. Aleksander Barkov, Keith Yandle and Carter Verhaeghe each have 3 points with Verhaeghe logging 2 goals while Yandle has 2 assists and Barkov has 3 assists this season. Sergei Bobrovsky and Chris Driedger each had a victory in the first two games for the Panthers.

The Columbus Blue Jackets will look to add to their 5-2 win over Tampa Bay last time out. Oliver Bjorkstrand and Alex Texier each have 5 points, with Bjorkstrand posting 3 assists while Texier posting 3 goals. Michael Del Zotto and Boone Jenner each have 4 points with Jenner logging 4 assists while Jenner has 2 goals and 2 assists. Nick Foligno also has 3 goals for the Blue Jackets this year.

Florida is 20-8 in their last 28 games against a team with a losing record and 3-9 in their last 12 games as an underdog while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games overall. Columbus is 2-7 in their last 9 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the under is 29-14 in their last 43 games as a favorite. Florida is 6-20 in the last 26 meetings between these two teams and 2-14 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams in Columbus.

Columbus made a move for Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic, but they won’t be in the lineup for a while and I really think the Blue Jackets losing Pierre-Luc DuBois in the deal is a big blow considering how much of an impact he had on the team already this season. Florida’s dealt with an extended layoff, but the Panthers looked good in their first couple of games and I think the rest might do them well here. I also don’t trust either of Columbus’ goalies here. Give me Florida at the even money.
