I'll do a quick wrapping of the weekend that I should've done but events came up. On Friday night, the Blue Jackets defeated the Blackhawks; and on Saturday, the Jackets beat the Stars.
The final score of the Blackhawks game was 3-2 for Columbus. The Jackets got goals from Zach Werenski; captain Nick Foligno; and Wild Bill. The Hawks got goals Tyler Motte and Richard Panik.
The final score of the Stars game was a 3-0 shutout for the Jackets. Josh Anderson; Scott Hartnell; and Matt Calvert had the goals.
Tonight is the Kings as the Jackets stride for their third straight win. The Kings lost wingers Vinny Lecavalier (retired) ans Milan Lucic (EDM); defensemen Luke Schenn (ARI) and Jamie McBain (ARI); and Jhonas Enroth (TOR) in the offseason. They added Devin Setoguchi; Michael Latta; Tom Gilbert; Jack Campbell; and Jeff Zatkoff.
The Jackets will have Sam Gagner in the lineup tonight after sending Oliver Bjorkstrand to the minors.
