(SportsNetwork. Vans Old Skool White .com) - The Columbus Blue Jackets havent won a game in over two weeks, but the struggling club hopes to change that Monday when the Florida Panthers visit Nationwide Arena. Columbus has lost six straight games (0-5-1) since picking up a home win over San Jose on Nov. 15. The win against the Sharks is just one of two victories for the Blue Jackets during a 2-13-2 stretch that dates back to late October. However, the Blue Jackets have had a run of success against the Panthers recently and with two straight games coming up against Florida, Columbus has a good chance to return to the win column soon. Columbus has won eight straight against the Panthers, who havent tasted victory in this series since notching a road win on Nov. 21, 2007. The Blue Jackets own an all-time 11-3-1 record in this series and are also riding a five-game home winning streak versus Florida. The Blue Jackets also will visit the Panthers in their next game on Thursday. This is not a home-and-home set, however, because Florida will visit Detroit tomorrow before meeting up with Columbus in South Florida. Although the Panthers have struggled in the series against the Blue Jackets, the club is coming into Mondays clash off consecutive victories and will try to post its first three-game winning streak of 2014-15. Florida recently capped a three-game homestand with two straight victories over Carolina and Ottawa. The Panthers recorded a 1-0 win in Wednesdays tilt against the Hurricanes and posted a 3-2 win Friday against the Senators. Roberto Luongo left Wednesdays game with an arm injury and was unable to suit up against Ottawa. However, Al Montoya filled in nicely for Floridas No. 1 netminder on Friday, stopping 22-of-24 shots to help the Panthers down the Sens. Montoya also made 22 saves to help complete Wednesdays shutout over the Canes after Luongo left midway through the second period. Jimmy Hayes scored the game-winning goal in the third period to help lead the Panthers past Ottawa. Dylan Olsen and Sean Bergenheim also scored for Florida, which hasnt won three in a row since a five-game tear from Dec. 10-19 of last season. The Panthers assigned goaltender Dan Ellis to San Antonio of AHL on Sunday, meaning Luongo should be able to at least suit up for tonights game. Its unclear if hell be starting or if Montoya will get the call instead. Columbus suffered its latest loss Saturday in Nashville, dropping a 2-1 regulation decision to the Predators. The score was tied at 1-1 after Ryan Johansen tallied the Blue Jackets lone goal less than four minutes into the third period, but Colin Wilson provided the game-winner with 2:12 remaining. Johansens goal came on the power play, while Curtis McElhinney kept his team in the game, stopping 40-of-42 shots in a tough loss. (The Predators) do a great job, said Columbus coach Todd Richards. They make it difficult executing, making plays coming out of your zone. Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to start tonights game. He has surrendered three or more goals in each of his past five outings, but Columbus No. 1 goalie also boasts a lifetime 6-1-0 record and 2.41 goals against average in seven games against the Panthers. The Blue Jackets, who have been decimated by injuries this season, have scored only five goals over their past four games. Columbus hopes forward Brandon Dubinsky can make his season debut and help boost the offense tonight. Dubinsky has yet to play this season after undergoing abdominal surgery, but he has been practicing with the club and is questionable for tonight. He was third on the team last season with 50 points.
