The visiting Columbus Blue Jackets look to continue their dominance of the Dallas Stars on Monday when they carry a four-game point streak into American Airlines Center. The Blue Jackets, who posted a 4-1 home victory over the Stars on Tuesday, have won six straight encounters between the teams and are 11-2-1 versus the club since the 2012-13 season.
Artemi Panarin set up Pierre-Luc Dubois’ club high-tying seventh goal of the season to join Alexander Wennberg and captain Nick Foligno in extending their point streaks to three games on Saturday in Columbus’ 5-4 shootout loss to the New York Rangers. Dubois has eight points (five goals, three assists) in his last eight contests for the Blue Jackets, who are 2-0-2 in their last four. Dallas fell for the third time in four outings (1-1-2) following a 5-4 overtime loss to Nashville on Saturday. Captain Jamie Benn, who had an assist versus the Predators, scored his team-leading seventh goal in the first meeting with Columbus last week.

ABOUT THE BLUE JACKETS (9-6-2): Defenseman Seth Jones set up a career high-tying three goals versus the Rangers to boost his total to six assists in his last four contests. Anthony Duclair had a power-play goal against the Stars and added another tally in Friday’s 2-1 win at Washington before drawing the ire of coach John Tortorella, who limited him to just 5:40 of ice time versus New York. “All three of them. I can’t play them as line,” Tortorella said of the Duclair-Wennberg-Oliver Bjorkstrand line. “I can’t play Wennberg’s line together because they get scored on. They don’t check.”
ABOUT THE STARS (9-6-2): Tyler Seguin, who has seven goals in 14 career encounters with Columbus, has tallied in back-to-back games to push his team-leading point total to 17. Fellow forward Alexander Radulov is expected to return to the ice on Monday after missing 10 of the past 11 games due to a lower-body injury. “(His energy) is missed a lot,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery told reporters. “And also his intensity that he plays with. He brings people into the fight with him. It’s something we clearly miss when he is not there.”
1. Dallas last recorded a victory against Columbus on Dec. 15, 2015 at home.
2. The Blue Jackets have four power-play goals in their last three games after going 0-for-20 in the previous five.
3. Stars C Jason Spezza resides one point shy of 900 for his career.
PREDICTION: Blue Jackets 4, Stars 2
