The Columbus Blue Jackets and the Dallas Stars meet in NHL action from the American Airlines Arena on Saturday night.

The Columbus Blue Jackets will look to take another step in the right direction after a 3-2 win over the Stars in their last matchup.

Boone Jenner’s got 15 points split between 8 goals and 7 assists and Jack Roslovic has 14 points with 5 goals and 9 apples.

Joonas Korpisalo continues to make the majority of the appearances in goal for Columbus, logging 7 wins with a 3.07 GAA in 19 appearances.

Columbus is 2-5 in their last 7 games overall and 3-10 in their last 13 games following a win while the under is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record. Dallas is 1-10 in their last 11 games overall and 0-6 in their last 6 home games while the under is 39-18-6 in their last 63 games as a home favorite. Columbus is 16-5 in the last 21 meetings between these two teams.

I’m still trying to make the case for the Dallas Stars in this spot and just like Thursday, nothing’s coming. The Stars are continuing to struggle to get out of this slump and I’m not laying juice with the Stars just because and doing so in the hopes that maybe they wake up and find a win. Columbus just has a certain vibe about them right now that’s gritty but also know that they have to get the offense going and maybe the win on Thursday was a sign of that. I think there’s value to be had with Columbus again here, so I’ll take the Blue Jackets and the plus money here.
