Gameday: Predators at Blue Jackets

Here’s what you need to know

Tonight the Blue Jackets try to wash the bad taste out of their mouths after last night’s terrible third period in New York. Nashville has not quite lived up to the lofty expectations following their Western Conference title, but they have won their last two games and just acquired Kyle Turris in a blockbuster three team trade. Turris makes his Preds debut tonight.

On the Columbus side, let’s hope that Cam Atkinson is recovered from his hip injury and his illness and can return to the lineup. We also expect Joonas Korpisalo to take the start in goal.
