The Columbus Blue Jackets return to the friendly ice of Nationwide Arena on Monday to take on the Boston Bruins. The game is the only home game in the next four contest for the CBJ.

The Columbus Blue Jackets enter the evening 7-4-0 and in third place in the Metropolitan division. Their fourth loss was suffered in Saturday nights game against the West leading St. Louis Blues in Missouri.

Not many people were watching, especially in Columbus. The Ohio State Buckeyes had just completed their upset of #2 Penn State in the Shoe and many were basking in that win instead of tuning in.

It seemed as though the Columbus Blue Jackets weren’t tuned in either as they lost 4-1 in the second game of a back-to-back. The Jackets didn’t look like themselves and will look to recover against the Bruins.

The Jackets face a three game road trip following their tilt against the Boston Bruins. Getting two points on home ice before traveling to Florida and New York is going to be critical to keep pace as the season heads into November.
