This will be one of the first big tests for the Jackets, as they travel to a tough place to play and face off with a much more veteran Blues lineup than they saw on Sunday night in Columbus. Expect the intensity to ratchet up a few notches, in other words.
Conversely, while nursing some injuries (and absences, ahem) in camp, the Jackets will be sending a much younger lineup out to the Gateway City. Here's what we know so far:
Blue Jackets Projected Lineup
Scott Hartnell--Mark Letestu--Nick Foligno
Dana Tyrell--Nick Moutrey --Jared Boll
Marko Dano--Michael Chaput--Simon Hjalmarsson
Ryan Craig--Lukas Sedlak--Jerry D’Amigo
Frederic St. Denis
(per the team's website, the pairs were in flux during the morning skate)
The Jackets' top line? Yep. The rest? Welp. As for the Blues, they've got a good bit of their expected forward corps going tonight, not to mention Brian Elliott. Tough sledding, indeed.
This one isn't being streamed online, but you can find it on the radio. Enjoy!
