This week, FOX Sports Ohio and other media outlets are getting fans ready for Blue Jackets Opening Night with a lineup of CBJ programming and live broadcasts leading up to Friday night's season opener vs. Toronto at Nationwide Arena.
One highlight on FOX Sports Ohio will be replays of the full four-game sweep of Tampa Bay last spring that served as the first Stanley Cup Playoffs series win in franchise history. Game 1 will air Monday night at 7 p.m. with the rest of the series running through Friday.
In addition, be sure to catch the "Blue Jackets Live" preseason show featuring Brian Giesenschlag and Jean-Luc Grand-Pierre as well as "Blue Jacket Conversations," in which Dave Maetzold interviews head coach John Tortorella and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen. Each show will air throughout the week on FOX Sports Ohio.
In addition, Blue Jackets broadcasters Bob McElligott and Jody Shelley will be joined by Tortorella for this week's edition of "The Inside Edge" radio show, which airs Wednesday night at 7 p.m. on 97.1 The Fan. The pair will also host a season preview show Tuesday night at 7 p.m. on 97.1.
Plus, Blue Jackets players and others will hit the local airwaves to talk about the season in the days leading up to the game against the Maple Leafs.
