When we last saw the Columbus Blue Jackets on December 14th, the Kings had just fired Terry Murray and the Blue Jackets had just 9 wins. Today... a little under a month later, the Kings are 5-0-3 under Darryl Sutter and the Blue Jackets have just 10 wins. Who gives a **** about this game... just have Dean Lombardi figure out a way to trade for Rick Nash.

Actually, once the Kings traded for Nash... he'd forget how to score.

This game has potential disappointment written all over it. Please win, Kings.

No Goals in 13 Games.

With 0 goals in his last 13 games... now is as good a time as ever to bring back a triskaidekaphobia edition of PennerPoint! The rules are still simple. Just guess the exact time and period that Dustin Penner scores his 3rd goal of the season today against the Blue Jackets... and you win a free t-shirt from The Royal Half Gift Shoppe. You can put your predictions in the comments below or reply to me on Twitter with #PennerPoint. Good luck!

Caution: sometimes the Blue Jackets don’t lose

After sleeping on it and reading Sharks game recaps, I realized that there were a lot of good things about last night’s game against the Ducks.  Things like allowing no shots on goal during penalty kills.  Things like out shooting and out scoring the other guys, blocking a lot of shots.  Burns coming back after blocking a shot with his hand, and, apparently, Demers feeling okay...
