5* Dallas (7:05 ET): As expected, the Columbus Blue Jackets haven't looked very good so far. After opening the year with a surprising 3-2 win at Nashville (as a +150 dog), they've lost four straight games, getting outscored 16-6 in the process. Monday sees them starting the week in a situation that has been most unfavorable the past two seasons & has already resulted in one blowout loss here in 2013....
That situation I'm speaking of is the club's 0-14 record when coming off a division loss by one goal. Just last week saw the Blue Jackets continue this putrid run with a 5-1 loss at Phoenix. At the time, the team was coming off a 3-2 loss to Detroit in their home opener two days prior. They've since been shut out by Colorado (4-0) and then lost again Saturday, at home, to Chicago, 3-2, which would land them in the situation I spoke of above as they get set to face the Stars tonight.
Dallas has had no issues winning in Columbus previously, winning 15 of their last 22 visits, including both last season. Following back to back close one-goal losses to Chicago & St. Louis, two of the top teams in the league, the Stars will be welcoming this drop in class. Note Dallas led in both of those contests and will be getting some key players back for tonight's game. Most notably could be the return of All-Star Jamie Benn. Look for the road team to roll here. 5* Dallas.
