But the third best record in the league with just two months left? Few, if any, saw that coming. New Jersey has been impressive from day one and are one of just two teams (the Boston Bruins being the other) who are top six in the league in both goals per game and goals against per game. Dougie Hamilton may be the best New Jersey blue liner, but what Ryan Graves and John Marino are doing as a defensive tandem is outstanding. In over seven hours on the ice (429.
The Blue Jackets are seeking just their third win in front of the home crowd of the 2023 calendar year. They're 2-5-1 at Nationwide Arena since January 1st, but have three road victories in their last seven games. Can the Blue Jackets find a winning way at home?

To put that in perspective, the second-ranked combo in the league by goals per 60 belongs to Charlie Mcavoy and Matt Grzlecyk of the Boston Bruins, who have allowed more goals (7) in almost exactly one hour less time on the ice (371. 0) for an average of 1. 13. No other eligible duo is under 1. 27. If the NHL gave out an award for best blue line pairing, the race would be over. Connor McDavid is a favorite for the Hart Trophy, but Devils forward Jack Hughes deserves consideration as well. The dangerous 21-year-old has a stat line of 35-32-67 in an even 50 games played. One hundred points is certainly in the ballpark, and Hughes improvements this season are noticeable in many ways. Watch out when he's on the ice.
