Game Thread #29 - Blue Jackets vs. Coyotes

I got this one done bright and early so I didn't leave you all high and dry for the first period. #BeBetter

The Blue Jackets finish their season series with the Coyotes, and this may be the last time we see the Desert Dogs for awhile given realignment. Pour some out on the curb.

The Jackets shuffle the deck on defense yet again, as Nikita Nikitin should be back in. John Moore is also coming off of IR, and so Cody Goloubef is back to Springfield. Sean Collins, however, is up on emergency recall, since Derek MacKenzie is out, still nursing some nagging injuries and R.J. Umberger is a game-time decision due to the same. If Umby can't go, Collins should get in.

Sergei Bobrovsky and Mike Smith are in the nets.
