Khan(!) finally came through and provides us with tonight’s lineup…
We’re back to Lebda/Meech-less lineup that I would take into any seven-game series against any team in this league. We have our Masterson Candidate up front, and our Calder Candidate in goal…not too mention the multiple Conn Smythe, Selke, Lady Byng, Norris, and William Jennings trophies scattered throughout the rest of the lineup.
And as for Nasty Nash…
Columbus coach Claude Noel said star forward Rick Nash’s status will be determined at game time. Nash, the Blue Jackets’ leading scorer, missed the last game with back and neck stiffness. If he plays, Johan Franzen will be assigned to check him, like he did in Detroit’s 3-2 victory last week.
For those of you who didn’t witness that battle last week…
…they’re still clearing the rubble.
