The Blue Jackets take on the New York Rangers tonight at 7:00 PM at Nationwide Arena. This will be the first meeting between the two teams since the blockbuster Rick Nash trade and the subsequent Marian Gaborik trade. However, the mood has been somewhat spoiled for fans of both teams, as both the Jackets and the Rangers have struggled out of the gate.

Additionally, Rick Nash remains out of the lineup due to complications from a concussion. However, with players like Derek Dorsett and Derick Brassard making their first return to Nationwide, since being dealt at the deadline, there will still be some buzz surrounding tonight’s game. As part of our pre-game coverage, this post will look at players from each team and highlight who is going into tonight’s game hot or cold.
