Minnesota Wild vs. Columbus Blue Jackets: Game Preview

Hannah Foslien

Hello again, Wilderness!

Who's ready for another night of hockey?

Tonight, the Wild close off this 4-game homestand with a visit from the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The last time these teams met, it was at Nationwide Arena in Columbus back in December.  The Wild for some reason weren't on top of their game that night, as they gave the Jackets a 4-0 win.

The Wild hope to redeem themselves from that terrible thumping earlier this season.

As I said earlier today in the walk, the Blue Jackets have one of the 6 playoff spots in the eastern conference, while the Wild have the first wild card spot in the western conference.

Here are tonight's expected starting lines:

Parise-Granlund-Pominville
Moulson-Koivu-Niederreiter
Coyle-Brodziak-Cooke
Heatley-Haula-McCormick

Spurgeon-Suter
Brodin-Scandella
Stoner-Prosser

Kuemper is expected to get the nod in net tonight.
