COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS @ TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING PREDICTION

Columbus Blue Jackets reached the Stanley Cup playoffs by eliminating Toronto Maple League 3-2 and the 3-0 win in the deciding game will give them big confidence coming into this series with Tampa Bay Lightning. The Lightning finished second in the Eastern Conference seeding round-robin after losing their final game to the Philadelphia Flyers. They will look to avenge the 4-0 series sweep in the playoffs last year to the Blue Jackets. With the Lightning potentially without key men Steven Stamkos and Victor Hedman, they could be under-strength and the Blue Jackets are favoured to take first blood.
