Gamethread: Blue Jackets at Devils

Blue Jackets in need of a gigantic wakeup against Metro’s worst.

I always reference Puddy from Seinfeld when the Blue Jackets meet the Devils so I’m not even going to mention that this time.

Anyway, the Devils aren’t good and there's no reason at all for the Blue Jackets not to get two points. Except if the offense could score more than one goal a game, that would be a start.

Prediction: Kole Sherwood does something impactful.

Update: Sherwood can be impactful from the press box.

Also, I mentioned it in the game preview: Pierre-Luc Dubois is going through a scoring slump this month. He didn’t play the final stretch of the third period and overtime against the Sabres last Thursday, and was taken off the top line Friday mid-game against the Rangers. Looks like he’s centering the third-line tonight.

Time to wake up everyone!
