RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Columbus Blue Jackets will try to reverse a 1-7-1 stretch when they face the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday. The Blue Jackets are coming off a 4-0 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.
"Obviously, we want to win, and right now that's our focus: trying to win every game playing the way we know we can," defenseman David Savard said. "Don't worry about what's going to happen after the game. Don't worry about the score. It's about the process and our team identity."
"He's big, he's strong, he can skate and shoot the puck," Columbus coach Todd Richards said. "Now it's just getting it to translate in games. He's going to get an opportunity and we will see what he does tonight. He's proven he can score at this level."
