Columbus Blue Jackets vs Winnipeg Jets 01/22/2020 Betting Odds:
Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus Blue Jackets have been saddled by several injuries this season, but they offered no excuses as they continued to compete at a high level against some of the best teams in the league. The team is taking pride in its defense. They have allowed only three goals during their current winning surge and they vow to keep frustrating their next opponents by putting more effort into limiting them from scoring. Goalie Matiss Kivlenieks made his season debut on Sunday and he immediately made his presence felt by accounting for 31 saves to propel the Blue Jackets to a 2-1 escape win over the New York Rangers.
Players to watch: Pierre Luc-Dubois (GP 50, G 15, A 20, PTS 35), Gustav Nyquist (GP 50, G 10, A 21, PTS 31), Zach Werenski (GP 43, G 15, A 14, PTS 29).
Losing five of their last six games, the Jets have been made aware that something needs to be done now. Wednesday’s visit to Ohio is their last chance to steal an elusive win before heading back to Winnipeg. Sensing trouble, the Jets aim to go off and running right at the onset of the match in order to set the tone for the team offensively. During their three-game slide that includes forgettable losses to Chicago and Carolina, Winnipeg was able to score only four goals – a demoralizing stretch especially for a team that continues to struggle for a playoff spot.
Players to watch: Mark Scheifele (GP 50, G 23, A 31, PTS 54), Kyle Connor (GP 50, G 24, A 24, PTS 48), Patrik Laine (GP 48, G 17, A 28, PTS 45)
