When we last saw the Columbus Blue Jackets on December 14th, the Kings had just fired Terry Murray and the Blue Jackets had just 9 wins. Today… a little under a month later, the Kings are 5-0-3 under Darryl Sutter and the Blue Jackets have just 10 wins. Who gives a shit about this game… just have Dean Lombardi figure out a way to trade for Rick Nash.

Actually, once the Kings traded for Nash… he’d forget how to score.

This game has potential disappointment written all over it. Please win, Kings.

No Goals in 13 Games.

With 0 goals in his last 13 games… now is as good a time as ever to bring back a triskaidekaphobia edition of PennerPoint! The rules are still simple. Just guess the exact time and period that Dustin Penner scores his 3rd goal of the season today against the Blue Jackets... and you win a free t-shirt from The Royal Half Gift Shoppe.
