Game Thread #16 - Blue Jackets vs. Ducks
The Jackets' road trip continues at 10:00 PM tonight in Anaheim. It's not like the Ducks have been playing well or anything.
The Jackets have a lineup in flux, as illustrated by the team's Game Day Blog:
Calvert - Anisimov* - Foligno
Collins - Brassard - Umberger
Dorsett - Letestu - Prospal
Gillies - MacKenzie - Boll
Tyutin - Nikitin
Johnson - Wisniewski
Moore - Aucoin
* Anisimov is considered a game-time decision. If he can't play, look for Nick Drazenovic to play in his place.
So there's that. Sean Collins will be making his NHL debut tonight if these lines hold.
For Anaheim, it looks like Jonas Hiller gets the start in net. Hiller hasn't played in 10 days after being pulled due to injury. He's been the less effective of the two Ducks' goalies, so I guess you can count that as a break for Columbus.
