Game #16 Preview: Banged Up Columbus Blue Jackets continue homestand, host Montreal Canadiens


The Columbus Blue Jackets, winners of two in a row (!!), continue their homestand tonight as they play host to the Montreal Canadiens. The Jackets, who have earned 5 of their last 6 available points, face a Canadiens team that had won three straight before dropping their last outing to the Devils. Both teams are banged up, but the Blue Jackets are one of the more significantly injured teams in the league - with the potential loss of Jake Bean and Elvis Merzlikins, the Jackets could be without nearly $40 million worth of roster players tonight. Can the Blue Jackets find a way to overcome the latest slew of injuries to win their third straight game?
