Last week, as Columbus residents were reeling from the news of the possible relocation of the Crew, the Blue Jackets struck a blow by defeating the relocated Atlanta Thrashers, 5-2. Just 10 days later, these two teams will meet for the second and final time of the season.
Winnipeg is playing on the second night of a back-to-back, after falling to the Penguins 2-1 in overtime last night at Pittsburgh. Connor Hellebuyck played last night, so expect to see Steve Mason in goal tonight. The Jackets had no issues scoring on him last time.
The Jackets won big on Wednesday night on national TV, even if it wasn’t pretty. Coach Torts switched the lines halfway through and it appears that he will stick with those lines to start this game. What do we think of these lines?
