The total goals margin is set at 6 with -139 odds to go over and 105 for under.
Columbus and Boston are close if we look only at the standings but are actually 22 points apart. The Blue Jackets theoretically still have a chance to reach the postseason but as they have lost the last six games, they are pretty much done for the season.
Boston, on the other hand, plays extremely well lately and can easily climb to third place in the conference. In order to do that, the Bruins will win this one easily, maybe not with 3 goals difference like they did two days ago at home, but will definitely defeat the Blue Jackets.
