The Blue Jackets come into tonight's game with four straight wins at Nationwide Arena and are turning it into a formidable place for away teams.
Meanwhile, the Flyers visit after beating the Canucks in a one-goal game at home, but are 1-3-1 in there last five games, giving the Jackets a chance to pile on an opponent who have been on a tough stretch. They cannot take it easy on them though.
The Blue Jackets top-guns continue to show up for the club, despite Dubois' and Nyquist's point streaks coming to a close, Werenski's and Bjorkstrand's continued.
Here's a look at tonight's projected lines for the Blue Jackets:
Scratches: Harrington, Nash
- Home Sweet Home. The Blue Jackets are on a four-game home winning streak and while it may not be the most entertaining at times, they are keeping themselves alive, but they need to start taking the built up success with them on the road.
- One-Goal Games. The Jackets are keeping fans on the edge of their seat this season as their victory over the Senators was the 16th one-goal game for the club this season. If this keeps up, the seats in the arena and at home may have significant wear on their edge at the end of the season.
- Korpi-Solid. In his last four games, Korpisalo has a .927 SV% and 2 GAA, a major improvement from his season average of .897 SV% and 3.04 GAA. Korpi may have turned the corner and become the goalie that the front office was hoping he could be, but each and every night he will be on trial until he becomes more consistent.
