Blue Jackets vs Capitals Game Day Call Columbus versus Washington NHL Odds

Blue Jackets vs Capitals Game Day Call Columbus versus Washington NHL Odds
A busy 12–game slate greets puck betting fans on the National Hockey League betting board at Bet364 today. With the holiday break complete, the second half playoff push has begun. Washington looks to avoid their first two-game losing streak this season while the Blue Jackets are well rested following a blowout win over the league leading Dallas Stars. Game time is slated for 7:00 PM ET on Tuesday, January 2, 2016, at Nationwide Arena in Ohio. Washington has been perfect after a loss so we expect the Caps to get back on track here.

Washington Capitals: Have not lost two in a row yet this season

Rolling through the first half, with a sparkling 28-7-2 record, Washington has not lost back-to-back games yet this season. Leaders in the Metropolitan Division, the Capitals 58 points is eleven clear of the Islanders who are tied for second with the Canadiens in the Eastern Conference. Alex Ovechkin & Crew trail the league leading Dallas Stars by a single point and the Caps have two games in hand. Braden Holtby (24-4-1 GAA 1.86) who has all eight wins following a Caps loss gets the call in goal. Holtby leads the NHL in wins, GAA and save percentage amongst goalies with at least 19 starts.

Columbus Blue Jackets: Ohio Crew have gained sole possession of the NHL cellar

Columbus is on a good month – bad month – pace as they sandwiched a nice November (8-5-0) with an awful October (2-10-0) and a dismal December (4-7-3). Columbus is last in the NHL with a 14-22-3 record and the Blue Jackets 31 points is twelve back of a Wild Card position in the Eastern Conference. Defense is a problem as Columbus is last in the league with 123 goals allowed and a -25 GF/GA differential. Help is coming though as starting G Sergei Bobrovsky was taken off the injured reserve list on Wednesday. We expect Curtis McElhinney (2-6-2 GAA 3.27) to start tonight. 

Blue Jackets vs Capitals Call: Washington won 2-1 at home over Columbus back on October 30, 2015, during the first of four meetings this season. The Caps won’t be a happy crew as their eight game winning streak was snapped by Carolina as the Hurricanes stormed to a 4-2 victory in Raleigh on New Year’s Eve. Following their six regulation and two extra time losses this season, Washington is 8-0 and have outscored their opponents by a 29-11 margin. However, four of those matches were decided by one goal.
