The Columbus Blue Jackets and Minnesota Wild look to move up in their respective divisions as they battle to make noise in the race for the Stanley Cup Playoffs in front of a national television audience Monday.
The Blue Jackets (17-15-3) and the Wild (16-14-4) will face off at Nationwide Arena with a 7:30 p.m. start time. The game will be available on Versus in the United States and TSN2 in Canada.
Both teams will be looking to get back on track after losses on Sunday. The Wild are third in the Northwest Division and the Blue Jackets are fifth in the Central, but Columbus is four points out of the eighth spot in the Western Conference while the Wild trail by five points.
I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
