There will be a few changes to the lineup tonight:
❗️ Updated Lines for the #CBJ -— Blue Jackets Game Bot (@CBJGameBot) October 25, 2021
Laine - Jenner - Voracek
Hofmann - Roslovic - Bjorkstrand
Nyquist - Sillinger - Chinakhov
Robinson - Kuraly - Texier
Werenski - Bean
Gavrikov - Kukan
Carlsson - Peeke
Adam Boqvist is day-to-day while dealing with “some issues,” according to Larsen. Texier gets demoted to the fourth line. If he continues to struggle, he could face being sent down to Cleveland when Domi is healthy. He does not require waivers.
#CBJ coach Brad Larsen had an on-ice chat with F Alexandre Texier at the end of this morning’s skate. Private chat, of course.— Aaron Portzline (@Aportzline) October 25, 2021
But feeling is that Texier has much more to give — remember the snarl? — so perhaps some time with the grinders of the world will bring that out of him.
As for the Stars:
Optional skate in Columbus, but we're guessing this:— Mike Heika (@MikeHeika) October 25, 2021
Klingberg expected to return after missing four games.
It’s Elvis for Columbus and Holtby for Dallas.
