The Columbus Blue Jackets are currently 4-1 into the 2017-18 season of NHL. The team is performing well. In fact, many assume that the Winnipeg Jets will be an easy opponent. And that brings us to the opponents of the Blue Jackets. The Winnipeg Jets are 3-2 in the season. It might look like just one more loss than the total wins, but it is, in fact, a beating of sorts.
The Blue Jackets are, no doubt, looking for a fourth win in a row. the Columbus team wants to make the season big. Now that they had three wins in a row already, we have solid reasons to assume that they will give it all they have to win their fourth game in a row.
The Winnipeg Jets are going to be an easy target for the Columbus Blue Jackets. However, the Jets can still prove to be fatal if their defense gives the Blue Jackets a tough challenge. It won’t be smooth sailing anymore and the Blue Jackets will have to fight it out, meaning they will have a poorer start in their next game.
The Blue Jackets will need to be strong and ready. If they can pull off a comfortable win in this game, their future in NHL turns brighter.
The Winnipeg Jets are weaker than they were a few weeks ago. Much weaker, in fact. Winger Mathieu Perreault is out after a serious injury in the match against the Carolina Hurricanes (Jets win the game 2-1). He is probably going to be out for four weeks. Kyle Connor is the replacement. Well, further on, Dmitry Kulikov is also probably missing a few games. The defenseman took a heavy hit in Saturday’s game. Tucker Poolman is the replacement.
These outs might make the team weaker than we expect.
