It's time for interesting matches in the regular season of the NHL. In one of the most modest meetings of the game day, Columbus and the Rangers will fight. The meeting of these teams will take place on January 28 at 03:00 Moscow time at the National Arena. Our portal has prepared its forecast for this confrontation for you.
Columbus Blue Jackets
They released the "jackets" in the offseason of many age leaders, taking a course to rejuvenate the squad. Columbus started in the championship with varying success and so far alternates wins and losses, but the management clearly did not set the task of getting into the playoffs. Recently, the team has been giving out another series of defeats, and the last offender of the Jackets was Calgary, who won with a score of 0:6.
New York Rangers
Rangers had good exchanges and signings on the market in the offseason, so the bright start of the team did not surprise anyone. Recently, Rangers began to gain momentum again after a small failure and began to win, giving out a bright away series of victories. New Yorkers also play well at home and have not lost for a long time, and in the last meeting they beat Los Angeles by shootout.
Injuries and disqualifications
Columbus - Danforth (knee injury), Tarasov (groin injury).
Rangers - Kakko (lower body injury), Blaise (knee injury).
Statistics and figures
- The last match between these teams ended with the victory of the Rangers with a score of 3:5.
- He has lost only once to Rangers in his last five meetings.
- Columbus has a bad streak of four consecutive defeats at home.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this confrontation, because both teams are able to demonstrate a bright game. "Rangers" looks stable this season and demonstrates a bright game. In turn, Columbus is now missing a lot and playing uncertainly. I think the game will end with a victory for the guests.
