Dallas Stars vs. Columbus Blue Jackets Free NHL Pick
The Dallas Stars come into Nationwide Arena to face the Columbus Blue Jackets. Dallas is coming off a road loss against the Detroit Red Wings after coming off three straight road wins. Dallas has been having a good season with Jim Montgomery at the helm so far. The Stars are currently 8-5-1 and have beaten some very good teams on the road. Jamie Benn is leading the team with six goals and has been doing a lot of heavy lifting for this team. John Klingberg is becoming a reliable option on the blue line, especially in the offensive zone. With Seguin struggling to play up to his standard, Radulov and Spezza have been picking up the slack and providing points where they can. If Dallas wants to beat Columbus, they will either need to match the Blue Jackets speed or rattle them physically.
The Columbus Blue Jackets play host to the Dallas Stars after beating the Buffalo Sabres by a score of 5-4. The Blue Jackets have been on a rougher stretch as of late, losing three of their last five games. Columbus currently has a record of 7-6-1 and looks to get a win tonight on home ice. Artemi Panarin leads the team in points this year and has been playing lights out as usual. Cam Atkinson is starting to find his rhythm as well, with 11 points in the first month of the season. The Blue line has two top threats in Seth Jones and Zach Werenski and has solid goaltending with Sergei Bobrovsky. If the Blue Jackets want to win, they will have to match the physical play of Dallas without taking penalties in the act.
