The regular NHL champion has started, in one of the brightest matches of the game day, we are waiting for a meeting between Columbus and Dallas. The game of these teams will take place on October 26 at 02:00 Moscow time. Our portal offers you its forecast for the outcome of this meeting.

 Columbus Blue Jackets

The Jackets completely failed last season and failed to make the playoffs. They lost their main star, having made an exchange, having received in return, albeit a young, but very promising Boquist. Also, several experienced hockey players have strengthened the team. The team started in the championship with varying success and so far alternates between victories and defeats. So in the last meeting, the Jackets lost at home to Carolina 1:5.

Dallas Stars

There were no big changes in the Dallas squad this offseason, all the forces were thrown at preserving their leaders and spot fortifications in depth. If injuries no longer haunt Radulov and Seguin, then the stars will again be a formidable force, which was also shown by the start of the championship, where Dallas managed to get three wins in five meetings, and in the last match they beat Los Angeles at home in overtime.

Injuries and disqualifications:

Injuries:

Columbus - Domi (rib injury), Bemstrom (muscle injury).

Dallas - Bishop (knee injury), Como (lower body injury).

Statistics and figures

  • The last match between these teams ended with a 5:1 victory for Dallas.
  • Columbus has lost only twice in its last five meetings.
  • Dallas has a good streak of two consecutive wins.

Forecast

It is difficult to single out a favorite in this game, because both teams have been looking pretty confident lately. "Dallas" gives out a series of victories, showing a bright game. Columbus has undergone a lot of changes in the offseason and does not have stability yet. Nevertheless, I will give preference to more experienced guests in this confrontation.
