Game Preview

The Columbus Blue Jackets play host to the Ottawa Senators tonight at Nationwide Arena. Ottawa did not find a Black Friday deal in the center market as they paid a heavy price for new center Matt Duchene, a former trade target for Columbus.

Columbus comes into the game with the NHL’s longest current winning streak, a streak that has seen them climb to first place in the Metro division. Ottawa comes into the game 0-3-1 in its last 4.

Go Jackets.
