The lack of shots in the last game could quickly become a concern for Columbus based off of how the team did last season. The Islanders were able to get a win against a Blackhawks team that has been questionable on the year already. Look for the offensive woes to continue for Columbus in this game and that will cost the Blue Jackets this game here. Final Score Prediction, New York Islanders win 4-2.
