Boston Bruins vs Columbus Blue Jackets

Where: Nationwide Arena, Columbus, OH

When: Tuesday, January 14, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Columbus Blue Jackets will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.

Bruins Going For Fourth Win In Five Games

The Bruins had their three-game winning streak snapped by Philadelphia on Monday night and will be trying to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Blue Jackets, which will give them their fourth win in their last five games.

Boston will be playing its second game in consecutive nights, so fatigue is going to be a factor for the Bruins in this game. The team is averaging 3.35 goals per game, but they have played better offensively in recent games, averaging five goals per game in their last four games. They will need to keep it going on the offensive end to give themselves a chance to win this game.

David Pastrnak leads the Bruins with 35 goals and 65 points. He has six goals in their last five games. Brad Marchand leads the team with 42 assists. He struggled over the last week and has only three assists in their last five games.

The Bruins have also played well defensively, holding opponents to 2.46 goals per game. They gave up 2.66 goals per game in their last three games and will need to continue playing well if they want to beat the Blue Jackets.

Blue Jackets Going For Sixth Win In Eight Games

Like the Bruins, the Blue Jackets are playing well at the moment and have won five of their last seven games. They will be going for their second win in a row and sixth win in their last eight games when they play the Bruins on Tuesday.

Columbus hasn’t played well offensively this season, averaging 2.63 goals per game. The team has turned things around in recent games and is averaging three goals per game in its last four games. With the Bruins averaging five goals per game in their last three games, the Blue Jackets will have to continue playing well offensively if they want to keep up.

Pierre-Luc Dubois leads the Blue Jackets with 15 goals and 34 points. He has one goal and five assists in their last five games. Gustav Nyquist leads the team with 21 assists. He has one goal and two assists in their last five games.

The Blue Jackets have played well defensively, holding opponents to 2.65 goals per game. They gave up two goals per game in their last four games and will need to keep playing well defensively to give themselves a chance to win this game.

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Bruins have played well offensively this season, averaging 3.35 goals per game. They have played even better in their last three games, averaging five goals per game, but they will struggle offensively against the Blue Jackets, who are giving up two goals per game in their last four games and held the Bruins to one goal in their last meeting. The Blue Jackets have also played well offensively in recent games, averaging three goals per game in their last four games. They will also have a hard time scoring in this game because the Bruins are giving up 2.66 goals per game in their last three games and gave up two goals in their last meeting. With the two teams playing under the total in seven of their last 10 games, the under makes the most sense here.

Prediction: Under 5.5
