Scouting Report

This will be the eighth meeting between these two teams this season and the second half of a back-to-back. The Florida Panthers have dominated the season series thus far. After Monday night’s game they are 6-1 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Panthers are currently sitting in second place in the Central Division, and for a good reason. They are an offensive powerhouse this season. The Panthers are all around a more solid team than the Blue Jackets, and I think that will carry them to victory on Tuesday night.

The Blue Jackets are amidst a very poor stretch of hockey. Heading into this one they are just 2-13 in their last 15 games. Their downfall for the past number of years has been their inability to score goals. The Panthers should continue their dominance of the Blue Jackets.
