The Jackets and Blues are coming off another one of their knock-down, drag-out matchups. And, guess who's back in the lineup for Columbus: none other than Jared Boll! I can't imagine a scenario where Boller--who has to have been chomping at the bit to get back out there--doesn't get tangled up with someone at some point.

It looks like Jaroslav Halak will get the cage tonight for St. Louis, whereas Curtis Sanford should be back in for the Jackets. Columbus will need to limit the PP opportunities for the Blues, and will need to get pucks--and traffic--to the net. They can't fall behind early and try to play catchup on this Blues team; they're just too good at holding leads.

Most of all, let's hope there are some pre-game soccer shenanigans to stir up the pot again. Buckle up!
