Florida Panthers, 16-8-2, 34 points, 2nd Atlantic, 3rd East
Columbus Blue Jackets, 9-15-5, 23 points, 8th Metro, 15th East

At least one team in Columbus has a proven ability to win when it matters. Congratulations to the Columbus Crew on their third MLS Cup yesterday!

The Jackets can try to keep the winning vibes in Columbus going today as they host the Panthers in a matinee outing. The Jackets will be without captain Boone Jenner, who was placed on Injured Reserve and is expected to miss six weeks with a broken jaw.

Player to Watch

Adam Fantilli

With Boone Jenner out for the next six weeks, the opportunity for Adam Fantilli to take on additional responsibilities presents itself. Can he earn his way to more minutes, more roles on the PK or more time in the defensive zone as the team looks to see games out. Can Fantilli take advantage of the opportunity?
