The Golden Knights come into the game as a middle of the road Western Conference team. They have high expectations this season and getting back on the right track will be of the utmost importance
Joonas Korpisalo will likely receive the start tonight for the Jackets. Korpisalo has been solid if not spectacular so far this season. The firepower of the Golden Knights isn't to be trifled with and they'll need a big night from Korpisalo to keep up.
The Jackets' have continued to mess with their lines to see how they can get the most out of their offense. It will be important to monitor players like Sonny Milano and Emil Bemstrom to see if they will be used to jump start the offense.
Here's a look at tonight's projected lines for the Blue Jackets:
Extra: Harrington, Hannikainen
- Goals. The Blue Jackets have to start putting the biscuit in the basket. It isn't just getting bad, it is getting heinous. It was known that the offense would struggle and that there would be some growing pains. Now it is up to head coach John Tortorella to see if he can tinker enough to get the offense going.
- Quality. The Blue Jackets are going to need to get offensive tonight but they are also going to need to get to the hard parts of the ice to do so. They are a team filled with bruisers and none of them are hammering away at the net. Parking your butt in front of the net may not be pretty but the ugly goals are gonna get the Blue Jackets points.
