As expected, Alexandre Texier will be out approximately a month with a fractured finger, allowing Emil Bemstrom to get back in the lineup.
This is a big response game for the young Blue Jackets, let’s hope the team got just a liiiiittle bit more sleep than Brad Larsen last night and are ready to go.
#CBJ coach Brad Larsen said he slept about 90 minutes last night after the 6-0 loss. “Your mind is so busy. You’re frustrated, you’re disappointed, you’re trying to figure out, what can we do better? ... Our staff is committed to getting these guys better. I promise you that."— Jeff Svoboda (@JacketsInsider) January 27, 2022
The Blue Jackets could get lucky and catch the Rangers looking ahead to a ceremonious night tomorrow when they return home and celebrate Rangers legend, Henrik Lundqvist.
It appears the Rangers will also be starting their backup goaltender, Alexandar Georgiev.
