Blue Jackets vs Penguins Free NHL Hockey Prediction Monday 21st 2015
12/21/15 Columbus vs Pittsburgh pick. Goalies starting tonight. Blue Jackets vs Penguins Free NHL Hockey Prediction Monday 21st 2015
Columbus Blue Jackets Preview
Last game out Joonas Korpisalo started against the Flyers, who was starting just his 3rd career game, and snagged the victory in a shootout. He wasn’t impressive however against a Flyers team any goaltender from beer leagues to the AHL will look impressive.
He’s now 1-2 on the year with a 2.94 goalsg against average. Korisalo will most likely hold the net until Bobrovsky comes back from injury. If Korisalo can help the Jackets win hockey games, Columbu’s 1-2 punch will be a very effective tandem finishing out the season.
Columbus currently sits 22nd in scoring, scoring just 2.4 goals per game, 16th in power play conversions, while on defense they are 27th in goals allowed 3.0 goals per game. Also 12th in the penalty killing department.
Pittsburgh Penguins Preview
Why are the Penguins trash? Blame Mario Lemieux, that’s the bottom line. Mike Sullivan will do whatever it is he can do with all the power he has in his pockets. It won’t be enough with this Pens team. I wrote a post on how Sullivan expects well executed breakouts, but as you will see in my post, the Penguins lack depth down the left and right side of the ice.
Outside of Crosby, Malkin, Kunitz and maybe Kessel, where are the other two wingers? You could also make an excuse that Kessel isn’t strong along the boards either. Leaving, 3 top forwards?
The defense for the team has been solid for most of the year as they currently rank 13th in goals allowed at 2.3 goals per game, however lately that defense has not been so tough as they have allowed 2.9 goals per game in their last 10 games.
Columbus Blue Jackets – Joonas Korpisalo
Pittsburgh Penguins – Matt Murray
