Game Thread 63: Detroit Red Wings at Columbus Blue Jackets

Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Detroit Red Wings
Loading Scores

I don't have a lot to say. No Pavel Datsyuk or Nicklas Lidstrom for the Wings. Rick Nash for the Blue Jackets. A giant cloud hanging over this franchise. A Red Wings team fighting for every point in an ever-so-tight division race.

How many Wings fans will be in the building tonight? How will the Blue Jackets' faithful react to Nash staying, and to the way the team acted--or didn't act, depending on your point of view--at the deadline? How will the Jackets play with their three best face-off guys now wearing other sweaters?

This game marks the debut of Darryl Boyce for Columbus. Jack Johnson makes his home debut, and he's actually now gotten a chance to interact with his teammates and skate on the ice with them. At the end of the day, I don't know what to expect from the Jackets tonight, but I have to say it will be interesting.
