The Columbus Blue Jackets cap the series with the Winnipeg Jets tonight from Nationwide Arena. Can the Blue Jackets complete the sweep of the Jets?

The Columbus Blue Jackets are coming off Wednesday’s great 5-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres. Despite all the early season power play issues, the Jackets have scored a power play goal in each of their last two games.  They will need to keep that momentum going tonight against the Jets.

The last time the Jackets and the Jets met, the Jackets won 5-2. The Jets also lost last night 2-1 in overtime to the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Jets will be hungry for a win on their two-game road trip.

I expect the Jackets to come out playing hard with their new look lines that were formed late in Wednesday’s game.  But, we all know how Tortorella’s line blender works.  At any moment, all of these lines could change.
