The Blue Jackets are 1-1-0 into the season so far with 2 points. On the other hand, we have the Hurricanes with a 1-0-0 score and 2 points. Both teams are full of young talents. The match will be interesting in part due to the fact that all these players are currently trying to make a name for themselves. They are all emerging stars.
The Columbus Blue Jackets had a 5-0 victory against the New York Islanders in their starting match. However, soon the hopes of any replication of that great score were dust. Their next game was a 5-1 loss against the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Columbus Blue Jackets might or might not be weaker. It depends on what you factor in: the stats, their past performance, or the current roster. But the Blue Jackets have what it takes to take the team into an overtime and win in the shootout.
The Blue Jackets have a lot of promising young talent in players like Zach Werenski, Alex Wennberg, Pierre-Luc Dubois, and Artemi Panarin.
The Carolina Hurricanes are coming off a big win against the Minnesota Wild. The game was pushed into overtime owing to the Wild team scoring a last-second goal. The shootout was 5-4 and the result was a Hurricanes victory.
Carolina will be relying on Jeff Skinner and Noah Hanifin. They were the scorers for the win in the last game with the Blue Jackets. Skinner and Hanifin, however, will most probably be leading a team that is already strong on many fronts. But will they be able to easily cruise through the Columbus Blue Jackets defense? Now that remains to be seen.
The Hurricanes also have promising young players like Haydn Fleury, Elias Lindholm, Victor Rask, and Sebastian Aho.
