Flyers vs. Blue Jackets Prediction

I’m leaning towards the Blue Jackets here. Normally I’m not going out of my way to back the Blue Jackets in any way, shape or form, but the Flyers are sliding in a huge way right now and are not even backpedalling into the playoffs, but might not even make the playoffs period. The Blue Jackets beat the Avalanche and Penguins at home in their last couple of games and I think Columbus plays spoiler here again. Give me Columbus.
