Game Thread: Game 1 (1A?) - Jackets vs. Jets (in Columbus)

Jackets vs. Jets - 7:00 EDT, 20 September 2011 - Nationwide Arena

Tonight we're going to try to keep two separate game threads going to make it a bit less confusing for y'all. This one is for the game in Columbus that starts at 7:00 EDT. This half of the Blue Jackets are coached by their American contingents, and for a roster refresher head over to Mike's Preview(s). I'll be watching from the box and chiming in on Twitter as well as the comments, so feel free to join me! Here's what I'll be watching for: the top-D pairing of James Wisniewski and John Moore, the former to see his shot in live-game action, and the latter as he's had a bit of a bumpy last 12 months of hockey. The top line of Vinny Prospal, Antoine Vermette, and R.J. Umberger intrigues me, if only to see Prospal in action. I'm more geeked up to see what kind of damage Michael Chaput and Cam Atkinson can do together on the third line with Oliver Gabriel on their other wing. We should also get to see two periods of the Dex Show, as Mark Dekanich will be making his Columbus debut. LET'S DROP THE PUCK!!
