Let's do it one more time, Jackets' fans!

The Blue Jackets' will close out their home schedule for the season on Friday night when they welcome the Buffalo Sabres to town. The Jackets struggled at home for much of the season, but with five straight wins at Nationwide Arena the team is going out on the right foot. The Jackets can tie a franchise record with a point tonight, which would extend their streak to 12 games.

The Sabres sit last in the NHL and have struggled all season long. The silver-lining on that season would be that last place would guarantee them the opportunity to draft one of the top two prospects in the draft, Jack Eichel and Connor McDavid. With a regulation loss tonight, the Sabres would "clinch" last place.

- With a win tonight, Todd Richards would make some history of his own. Richards 125 wins behind the Jackets' bench are currently tied with Ken Hitchcock for the most in franchise history.

- Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to start in net for Columbus, his 11th consecutive start.

- The Blue Jackets have won their home finale in each of the last three seasons. The last team to spoil Columbus' last hurrah at Nationwide Arena was the Buffalo Sabres in April 2011.
