Columbus Blue Jackets @ Pittsburgh Penguins Root Sports - 4:00 pm/et  Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA The Columbus Blue Jackets are now in the Penguins' division. This is going to be a fun rivalry in the Ridiculous Name Division, and we're looking forward to that. Today's game is also a free game for kids, which is nice. The Blue Jackets won the first preseason game between these two teams.  STATS, INFO & NOTES: Records: Pittsburgh (1-1-1 - Preseason) / Columbus (3-1-0 - Preseason) Opposition Blog: The Cannon Previews from Team Websites: [Penguins] [Blue Jackets] What Happened Last Time: [Our Recap] Somewhere in the first period Bylsma went off on one of the refs. He seemed really jammed about it. Jacques Martin looked at home behind the bench. Penguin to Watch: Jussi Jokinen. He's playing on the top line with Malkin and Neal. It will be interesting to see if he can find a permanent place on that line. Blue Jacket to Watch: Mark Letestu. He's a former Penguin. We guarantee that will be mentioned about 82 times. Also, did you know that R.J. Umberger was born in Western Pennsylvania? You will!
