In honor of First Responders Night on Saturday, October 19, the Blue Jackets went above and beyond to show their appreciation. Early in the week, Markus Nutivaara and Oliver Bjorkstrand went to visit two firestations in the city to learn what life is like as firemen. 

Tweet from @JacketsInsider: As part of first responders night, a Columbus Fire/Columbus Police team will take on FDNY Bronx today at Nationwide Arena. The free event takes place at 2:30 #CBJ https://t.co/LJiS7uKNRE

Stinger didn't seem to be phased by the police presence at Nationwide Arena. Some bugs seem to think they live above the law.

Before the game kicked off, the Columbus Fire Department was enjoying a beautiful night on the plaza interacting with CBJ fans on their way to the game.
