Washington Capitals vs Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Hockey Las Vegas Odds and Free Sports Picks

Two Metropolitan Division teams will be trying to get back on the winning side when they meet Tuesday night at Nationwide Arena.

The Washington Capitals have lost two in a row after falling 4-3 on Sunday at home to the Vegas Golden Knights. The Columbus Blue Jackets have dropped three straight and four of their last five games.

Tuesday's matchup is the first of an extended back-to-back between the teams. They meet again on Friday night in Washington.

The Capitals (30-17-5) remain atop the Metro standings with 65 points after the recent losses. In those two games, four of the 11 goals by opponents came on power plays.

The Capitals had been one of the NHL's hottest teams, going 20-4-5 in their past 29 games before the mini-skid.

But there's no panic yet among the Capitals, who led the Golden Knights in the third period before giving up the winning goal.

The Blue Jackets are getting bitten quite a bit recently. They've struggled for the past two-plus months, never winning more than two games in a row.

At Thanksgiving, the Blue Jackets (27-21-4) were sitting in first place in the division. Now they're clinging to a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference with a host of teams breathing down their necks.

The Blue Jackets have struggled to score goals most of the season, but coach John Tortorella was encouraged by the effort in Saturday night's 4-3 road loss to the New York Islanders.

Josh Anderson, Cam Atkinson and Nick Foligno -- all of whom had been struggling to produce -- accounted for the three goals.

February could be make-or-break time for the Blue Jackets. A majority of their games will be against division opponents, including the Capitals three times, before the calendar turns to March.
