The Columbus Blue Jackets take on the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Nationwide Arena on Thursday evening.
The Metropolitan Division rivals are already both assured of their place in the NHL playoffs. However, they currently sit level on points, which makes this game a key clash in the battle for home-ice advantage in the Eastern Conference First Round play-off (where they are currently on course to face each other).
The Penguins may have been back-to-back Stanley Cup champions in the past couple of years, but their away form this season has been poor. That makes the Blue Jackets, who have won 13 of their last 15 games, the pick here.
Pick: Columbus Blue Jackets (-133)
