The Blue Jackets are coming here with a good game here in the last game. However, the Blue Jackets are one team that has been able to play streaky on the offensive side of the puck so far. The Lightning are coming here with a good defense, but the defense for Tampa Bay has struggled lately and that could come into play here, but it is unlikely for the Lightning to play bad in back to back games. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning win 4-2.
