New York Rangers vs Columbus Blue Jackets prediction

The Columbus Blue Jackets can't get out of their own way, and the offense continues to come up short in these losses. The New York Rangers are the hottest team in the league and not a team I'm excited to step in front of, especially on the road, where they're an impressive 19-9-3. I have no choice but to ride the hot hand and side with the Rangers and the PL for max betting value.
