No. 2: Columbus Blue Jackets

Previous: No. 4

Record: 32-10-4 (68 points)

Columbus has had some pretty stellar goaltending from Sergei Bobrovsky this season. He wasn’t in net for any of the six-goal barrage by Ottawa, and his absurd .932/1.97 statline is a huge reason why the BJs are a plus-49 in goal differential and are tied for second-fewest allowed in the league at 106.
