Bad on road v. Bad at home. What an interesting battle at home tonight for the Jackets as they welcome the Flames as they looking for a start to an awful first half of the 2015-16 season. As mentioned through the first sentence of my blog, the Flames are not a good team away from the Scotiabank Saddledome. As for the second half of the intro, the Jackets have not been great at home, but are getting better. Tonight, change could be coming as a team has to win the game.

Players to Watch
Calgary: Johnny Hockey. Gaudreau has been the Flames most consistent player, and is their only All-Star for that reason. He is also very talented in 3 on 3 overtime. And he was a fourth round pick. What a steal by a team that made the playoffs with him last year.
Columbus: Bobs. Being his second game back from injury, he is back in between the pipes. They need him to play extremely well in order to climb in the standings.
Enjoy the games tonight. More to come…
