    The Blue Jackets win streak will end - at some point but I don't see the Capitals as the team that does that -- yes, Capitals are at home but Blue Jackets on a "record-setting" run -- just maybe a one goal margin win but staying with the Blue Jackets until the run is over -- whether this one goes OVER I'm thinkng it won't -- Blue Jackets win 3-1 or 3-2
