The Columbus Blue Jackets are hoping to bounce back tonight against the Florida Panthers as they are back in Nationwide Arena hoping to put the past behind them. Unfortunately over the weekend, reality hit them hard in their 5-0 loss to the Dallas Stars.
Hopefully, the Blue Jackets will rekindle that inner fire again in front of the home crowd as they did the last time since they’ll be a limited about of fans in attendance. Head coach John Tortorella is expected to once again stick to the exact same lineup he’s been using for weeks now.
Even though this approach has been inconsistent, perhaps there is a reason for Tortorella’s madness for not changing things up at all. It at least shows his commitment and belief that keeping things the same proves his faith in players. Let’s see if the Blue Jackets can get the job done and not have another embarrassment of a performance this time around.
