The Avalanche don't fare well on home ice. In fact, they haven't won there since the end of January, The Jackets are a good road team, setting a new road win record this year already. That's as good a reason as any to consider the Jackets a favorite tonight.
Some news to point out since this morning:
- Milan Hejduk is in the lineup for the Avs tonight. Look for David Koci to get the scratch.
- Steve Mason is the likely starter for the Jackets.
- Brian Elliott should be in the cage for the Avs.
If the Jackets win tonight, they split the season series 2-2. What the Jackets could use tonight is an offensive outburst, both for confidence and to gain momentum for the next game against the Coyotes.
Will Scottie Upshall and Sami Lepisto be Blue Jackets next season?
