8* Sunday NHL CLB/CHI
Columbus vs. Chicago,

Score: 0 - 1
Total: -125/+5½ Under
Chicago & Columbus under 5.5
The Chicago Blackhawks host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday. Chicago is coming off a 2-1 win over San Jose, while Columbus dropped their last game to St. Louis, 2-1.
We knew Columbus wouldn't win many games this season, and certainly wouldn't score many goals with the franchise’s all-time leading goal-scorer Rick Nash shipped out of town during the offseason, but what has been surprisingly has been their ability to keep the puck out of their own net. Only once in the team’s last six games have they allowed more than three goals.
This game is the sixth on a six-game road trip for the Blue Jackets. They have lost four of those five games, but also played under the total in four of those five games, including each of the last three.
These teams met on January 26th in Columbus, a game the Blackhawks won, 3-2. The Blackhawks are slated to send out goaltender Corey Crawford for this contest. He posted a 1.61 GAA and a .950 save percentage in five starts against the Blue Jackets last season.
The under is 8-1-1 in Chicago’s last 10 home games, and 6-1 in Columbus’s last seven road games. Take the UNDER.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
