The Columbus Blue Jackets and the Florida Panthers will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at BB&T Center.

ABOUT THE BLUE JACKETS (8-4-0): Tyler Motte made his first game with Columbus a memorable one as he scored to give the club its 3-0 advantage. The 22-year-old center, who was acquired from Chicago in the offseason deal involving Panarin, recorded four tallies and three assists in 33 contests with the Blackhawks last season – his first in the NHL. Motte was in the lineup for Cam Atkinson, who missed the game due to a lower-body injury.

ABOUT THE PANTHERS (4-6-1): Antti Niemi made his debut with Florida on Monday and suffered the loss in relief after giving up two goals on 18 shots. The 34-year-old Finn, who was claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh on Oct. 24, has made each of his last three appearances versus the Lightning – losing all three while allowing 14 tallies. Dadonov leads the Panthers in goals with six, three of which have come on the power play.

Oddsmakers opened the Blue Jackets as -110-moneyline favorites versus the Panthers, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Florida Panthers attempt to bounce back from a rough outing when they continue their five-game homestand Thursday against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Florida went 1-0-1 in the first two contests of the stretch at BB&T Center before suffering an 8-5 loss to Tampa Bay on Monday.

Aleksander Barkov continued his solid pace in the setback, registering a four-point performance to give him four goals and seven assists over his last six contests. Linemates Evgenii Dadonov and Jonathan Huberdeau each recorded a tally and two assists, leaving the trio tied for the scoring lead on the Panthers with 14 points apiece. Columbus is kicking off a three-game road trip after topping Boston 4-3 in a shootout on Monday. Artemi Panarin helped the Blue Jackets avoid an embarrassing loss, scoring the decisive goal in the bonus format after the club squandered a 3-0 lead.

Florida lost its last outing, a 8-5 result against the Lightning on October 30. Bettors who backed the Lightning at -115 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (13) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
