The Jackets have a chance to become a .500 team with a win tonight against the Minnesota Wild. The Wild are coming off a 5-4 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues.
*The line of Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu, and Dany Heatley have accounted for 10 of Minnesota’s 13 goals so far this season.
*Steve Mason will get the start tonight for Columbus. I’m not sure who will get the start for the Wild, but one could assume it will be Josh Harding. Niklas Backstrom gave up five goals on Sunday versus the Blues.
*The Blue Jackets didn’t leave Columbus until 11:00 this morning.
*Game time is set for 7:00 tonight.
