Happy Friday and again, a happy game day to you!

These Friday games are starting to become habit and if you ask me (no one is, though)...I'm on board with it. Last Friday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes was fun - and one heck of an atmosphere at Nationwide Arena - and this week, we've got another dandy on home ice. The Washington Capitals, a team the Blue Jackets are trying to track down in the Metropolitan Division, are in town for a big game that's considered one of the "four point" variety. 

Four straight wins including a dramatic Monday night finish against Tampa has provided for plenty of conversation this week. Let's get right down to it!

Here are this week's links...

- This is very cool: our friend CBJ Prospects put together a list of his Top 20 prospects in the Blue Jackets organization. It's sure to get you thinking!

- Andy Newman from the Cannon blog showcases a really cool piece from Justin Bourne of The Score, in which he said the Blue Jackets executed "the perfect shift." Great stuff.
