Last night was fun. Can the Columbus Blue Jackets keep it going on the second night of a back to back?
After Artemi Panarin put the team on his back and scored the game winner by himself last night, the Blue Jackets traveled to Minnesota where tonight they will take on the heavily injured Minnesota Wild. Missing from the Wild lineup are key players such as Mikael Granlund, Zach Parise, Marcus Foligno, Charlie Coyle, and Nino Niederreiter. How Minnesota will fare without these players in their lineup is a mystery to everyone.
As for the Blue Jackets, expect Joonas Korpisalo to get the start as he did on the second night of a back to back last weekend. Korpi missed practice this week after having his wisdom teeth removed but should be good to go tonight.
I know Minnesota’s lineup is .... lacking, to say the least, but even Hockey Wilderness has no idea what to expect from their lineup tonight. Hooray!
