Looking for another win over a Metro contender

NHL: Columbus Blue Jackets at New York Islanders Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Boone Jenner is OUT with an illness. Riley Nash is OUT with a case of being Riley Nash.

Lukas Sedlak slots in for Nash on the fourth line wing. Nick Foligno slides over to center of the Grit Line, with Eric Robinson returning to the lineup to take the wing. None of us want to see Foligno back at center, but I think keeping him with Anderson and throwing Robinson in the mix means the line can continue providing what they have for much of the season.

Sergei “Sergio” Bobrovsky starts in net. After a forgettable weekend against Edmonton and Winnipeg, Bob has delivered two stand-out performances in the last week against New Jersey and Pittsburgh.

Robin Lehner and Johnny Boychuk are both confirmed to be out for the Islanders.

Let’s go Jackets!
