A quiet day for both Columbus and the Rangers on deadline day; however, the Blue Jackets are first up to challenge Eric Staal in a blue sweater. My blog will be out on that soon though, and the rest of the trades.
To the Garden tonight are the Jackets to take on the Rangers who are without Rick Nash, but are with Eric Staal. The Jackets send Kerby Rychel to the AHL; Rene Borque clears waivers; and Boone Jenner resigns a 2 year, $5.8 million dollar deal.
The last time these teams played were on opening night to start off the winless streak to the Blue Jackets season.
Goalie Matchup tonight is Antti Raanta for New York vs. Joonas Korpisalo.
