I don't have a lot to say about this one. Apparently, there's a basketball game on tonight that people from Columbus are paying attention to. C'est la vie.
The Jackets close out their Central Division slate against the team trying to clinch the division, and a team that needs points to stay in first place in the conference. These two teams flat-out don't like each other, which is always an interesting twist.
The Jackets made another move today, recalling defenseman Cody Goloubef on emergency recall. I don't have any reports as to who might be hurt (Aaron Johnson, after blocking that shot in the first period to save a goal?) or whether or not Goloubef will play tonight. Hopefully Nikita Nikitin gets a chance to ride his great night last night into his former home.
Enjoy the game!
