Game Preview #11: Looking for a Rebound
Columbus returns home after a disheartening loss in St. Louis to try to get back to their winning ways.
Anaheim Ducks at Columbus Blue Jackets
Wednesday November 9, 2016 - 7:00 EST
Nationwide Arena, Columbus, Ohio
TV: Fox Sports Ohio –Radio: 97.1 WBNS FM
This is a hockey preview.
There’s a game tonight. At Nationwide!
I hope the Jackets win. Let’s find something to bring us all together after a long, brutal, bitter election. I’m sorry that this isn’t all that exciting and stats filled, but I’m just not up for it today.
Brandon Saad might be a healthy scratch tonight, so there’s that. He made a mistake, sure, so let’s bench this guy who is 5th in the league in ixG (expected goals per sixty minutes):

Jared Boll makes his return to Nationwide Arena tonight. I hope the team gives him a nice tribute. He wasn’t my favorite player, but he was a loyal soldier who did hard work for the club. It’d be cool if he scored a goal in a loss for Anaheim tonight.
Oh, and Seth Jones is out for 3 weeks or so. So there’s that.
Go Jackets. Please win.
