Perron - McDonald - Boyes
Kariya - Tkachuk - Mayers
Stempniak - McClement - Backes
King - Johnson - Hinote
Salvador - Brewer
Jackman - Backman
McKee - EJ
Legace (Although, it's entirely possible he'll start)
Projected Blue Jackets Lines:
No idea lol. All I know is that the highly touted prospect Brassard will make his NHL debut on the 4th line and 1st powerplay. Also, Leclaire might get the start if he's not suffering from his infection.
I really like the play of the Perron-MacDonald-Boyes line the past two games. Walt and Kariya have also been clicking. The kid line has looked sharp as well. Andy M may have finally found the right line combos to get more than 1 or 2 goals per game.
This my first prediction on here, so I'll go 4-3 Blues
3 goals against and no transition game. Yeah!!! Good Idea!! After the last few games of allowing 1 or fewer goals , I don't understand that at all. He played well in the last game. I understand with this game being so rough that maybe dressing Backman isn't the best thing to do, but we could sure use some sort of transition game. The whole D has been solid lately. I guess they are do for a stinker.
We should have saved a couple goals from the other night. The only thing that's missing is Brassard scoring his first career NHL goal, since I swear 30% of the players in the league scored their 1st goal against us.
