Columbus looks to avenge recent loss to Edmonton.
Edmonton may have fallen out of playoff contention but they continue to make noise with some impressive wins. The Oilers will complete a four-game road trip at Columbus and are 2-1 so far which includes strong wins over Nashville and Florida. Goaltender Devan Dubnyk shut out the Blue Jackets 3-0 in the last meeting ten days ago.
Columbus is also 2-1 in their last three games including a 5-1 win over Carolina in their last game thanks to a hat trick by left winger R.J. Umberger. Steve Mason will try to keep up his strong play for the Blue Jackets, as the Columbus goaltender is now 6-2 in the month of March.
The puck is scheduled to drop at 3:00 p.m. ET and the game will be televised on Fox Sports Ohio.
