Game Thread #10 - Blue Jackets vs. Kings

Jack Johnson and Jeff Carter highlight this matchup as the Cup Champs invade Columbus for their only visit this season.

Both clubs are coming in a bit banged up on defense, with Columbus certainly the worse for wear. James Wisniewski, Nikita Nikitin, John Moore, and Adrian Aucoin are all out; in are Nick Holden and Cody Goloubef to go with David Savard and Tim Erixon to replace those four names.

For the Kings, they got lit up on the scoreboard by Anaheim the last time out, giving up seven goals. Jonathan Quick was pulled from that start early.

In goal for Columbus will be Steve Mason, who added a solid start Saturday to his impressive relief effort on Thursday. He'll have an extra task tonight keeping track of the new bodies in front of him.

Then, of course, there's Jack Johnson. After playing 35 minutes on Saturday, his old mates are in town. Think he doesn't have a little extra juice?

At last, we have Jeff Carter. I don't have much to add here that hasn't already been said. Let him hear tonight, folks!

Enjoy the game!
