Columbus vs Pittsburgh: prediction for the NHL preseason match
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Columbus Blues Jackets lost their winning streak in the last game. The Blue Jackets traveled to St. Louis, where they suffered a crushing defeat with a score of 3:7. Goaltender Korpisalo had a terrible game and stopped only 75% of the shots. It is worth mentioning the good performance of forward Bemstrom, who scored a double.
Before that, the Blue Jackets played at home, where they beat Detroit (4:2) and triumphed over Buffalo without any particular problems (5:3).
The Pittsburgh Penguins recovered after a poor start in the preseason. The Pens had a winning streak of three games. They prevailed over the Sabres in a shootout (5:4) and crushed Detroit (5:1). Forward Heinen scored a goal and gave two assists.
The Penguins lost their winning streak away from home. In the return game against Detroit, they didn't act reliably on the defensive and as a result, were defeated (2: 4).
In 3 head-to-head games out of 4, the teams failed to score more than one goal in the first period.
In 3 out of 5 head-to-head games, Pittsburgh opened the scoring.
Columbus are showing excellent results at home, while Pittsburgh quite often have problems away. The Penguins haven't yet picked perfect form. We believe that the Blue Jackets have the opportunity to record another victory.

We do not expect a high-scoring game; the opponents rarely score a large number of goals in head-to-head games.
Second wager -total under 6.5 goals
