There is a reason why Pittsburgh are placed higher than the Blue Jackets in the standings, it can be simply attributed to the fact that the Penguins have been playing better of late than the Blue Jackets. Add to this their previous 3-0 victory over the Blue Jackets earlier this week, it would be tempting to lay the money on the Penguins and you may be right in doing so as well. Add to the fact that the Penguins are 4-1 in the last five meetings between the two teams in Columbus what you get is a clear picture. The Blue Jackets have been struggling lately and one would expect them to start winning eventually but that start might not come against the Penguins this game. Expect the Penguins to take this one.
