Let’s ground the flightless birds

Joonas Korpisalo starts again in net for the Columbus Blue Jackets. Riley Nash returns to the lineup, while Eric Robinson sits as the healthy scratch. I don’t get sitting Robinson after how well he has played. Why not sit the underperforming Cam Atkinson or Josh Anderson? Why not sit Alexandre Texier, who has not played as well lately and played less than five minutes on Wednesday?

Tristan Jarry gets the start for Pittsburgh. As I mentioned in the preview, Matt Murray has struggled this season so the backup starting may be worse news for the Jackets.

Let’s go Jackets!
