The Dallas Stars and the Columbus Blue Jackets meet in NHL action from the Nationwide Arena on Tuesday night.
The Dallas Stars will look to bounce back from a 4-3 shootout loss to Carolina last time out. Joe Pavelski leads the Stars in scoring with 10 points coming on 5 goals and 5 assists while John Klingberg has 2 goals and 6 assists for his 8 points. Denis Gurianov has 7 points with 3 goals and 4 helpers and Alex Radulov has 6 points with 2 goals and 4 assists. Miro Heiskanen and Roope Hintz each have 5 points with Hintz logging 4 assists while all five of Heiskanen’s points have come via the assist. Anton Khudobin has started the bulk of Dallas’ games, posting a 2.17 GAA with 3 wins this season.
The Columbus Blue Jackets will try to rebound from a 3-1 loss to Chicago in their last game. Oliver Bjorkstrand leads the Blue Jackets in scoring with 8 points coming on 3 goals and 5 assists while Boone Jenner and Alex Texier each have 6 points with Jenner scoring 3 goals with 3 assists while Texier has 4 goals and a pair of assists. Michael Del Zotto, Nick Foligno, Cam Atkinson and Eric Robinson each have 4 points with Foligno logging 3 goals, Robinson putting up a pair of goals and assists, Atkinson logging 3 assists and Del Zotto has 4 assists. Korpisalo and Merzlikins each have a pair of wins in goal for Columbus, with Korpisalo logging a 2.17 GAA while Merzlikins has a 2.99 GAA.
Dallas is 6-0 in their last 6 games as a favorite and 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games as a road favorite. Columbus is 4-9 in their last 13 games overall and 2-5 in their last 7 home games while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall. Dallas is 3-13 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams and 0-5 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Columbus.
Dallas has picked up points in 5 of their first 6 games this season, but their 4 wins also came at home and in the small sample size, it just feels like the Stars are having issues translating that success on the road. Columbus has had their own ups and downs early on, but they’re battling at home and I just think on the cheap they’re worth the play here. Give me Columbus in this spot.
