The Columbus Blue Jackets look to break their four game lose-streak against the New Jersey Devils tonight.

The Devils roll into Nationwide well rested and looking for a win. They lost their last two games to the Calgary Flames (2-3) and the Ottawa Senators (3-5).

The Jackets will need to keep a watchful eye on the Devils top line of Taylor hall, Nico Hischier, and Jesper Bratt. They are a scoring power house. The Jackets will need to stop them from crossing the offensive zone blue line. Once they break the plane, there is no stopping them.

Attacking the net and scoring goals is an absolute must for the Jackets tonight.

As Head Coach John Tortorella said, the team needs to find ways to win instead of ways to lose.
