Starting netminder Sergei Bobrovsky is presently 0-5 with a 5.07 goals against average and a dismal .835 save percentage.
The silver lining, for bettors at least, is that the Jackets have been a profitable Over wager, going 5-0 O/U through their first five games. They’ve scored a dozen goals themselves, so there’s been an average of 7.6 goals scored in the first five Jackets games this season.
The Jackets are back at it as they visit the Chicago Blackhawks Saturday evening. Oddsmakers have the total tabbed at 5.5.
