New York Islanders vs Columbus Blue Jackets 3/24/2023 Analysis, Tips and Previews

The Columbus Blue Jackets are returning home following an exciting win over the Washington Capitals that broke a three-game losing streak, and they’re hoping to keep the momentum going when they take on the New York Islanders on Friday night. Despite their recent victory, Columbus has already been eliminated from playoff contention, with a disappointing 22-41-7 overall record, including a lackluster 13-20-2 record when playing at home this season.

The Blue Jackets managed to pull off an upset against the Capitals with a nail-biting overtime victory on Tuesday. Center Boone Jenner scored his 24th goal of the season in the final minute of regulation to send the game into overtime tied at 6-6. Center Jack Roslovic then sealed the deal by netting the game-winning goal just 2:43 minutes into the extra period.

  • The total stayed UNDER in 10 of Columbus’ last 15 matches with the Islanders.
  • The Columbus Blue Jackets are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games at home.
  • The total remained UNDER in 5 of Columbus’ last 6 games at home against the NY Islanders.

New York Islanders vs. Columbus Blue Jackets. The NHL Pick for this contest is the New York Islanders. Expect a lopsided result from this mismatch. The Islanders will enter this game with momentum as they’re on a three-game win streak. The Blue Jackets haven’t had any momentum all season long. Columbus played their better hockey at home, but the Blue Jackets are still the worst team in the league and have nothing of any real consequence to play for here. The Islanders are still fighting for a playoff spot here and have the edge pretty much across the board. The Blue Jackets would benefit more from a loss than a win and the Islanders will hold on to the puck predicted at 4-1.
