Game four between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Washington Capitals starts tonight at 7:30.

Tonight will be a pivotal game for the Columbus Blue Jackets. After dropping game three in double overtime, the Jackets could still take a commanding 3-1 series lead with a win over the Washington Capitals tonight.

But a Capitals win would give them all the momentum they need to come back from a 2-0 series deficit heading back to home ice. Alex Ovechkin promised they would win games three and four; tonight he gets to see if he can uphold that promise.

After setting a franchise record in attendance in game three, the crowd will be just as packed and amped up for game four. Doors open at Nationwide Arena at 6pm.
