Arizona 2 @ Columbus 8 | 10/14 | 11:00 PM UTC

Columbus -166

WIN

ANALYSIS: Arizona on paper looks like potentially the worst team in the NHL -- yes, even worse than Buffalo. Yotes forward Alex Galchenyuk is starting the season on IR, while fellow forward Phil Kessel is iffy at best for Thursday. The No. 1 netminder is Carter Hutton, who was 1-10-1 with with a 3.47 GAA last year with those Sabres (Hutton needs to get a new agent). Columbus imploded a bit last season under hard-driving coach John Tortorella and replaced him with Brad Larsen. Elvis Merzlikins gets the call in net. He was 6-3-2 at home last year with a 2.56 GAA.
