The Blue Jackets conclude their brief two game trip in the "Sunshine State" here in Tampa tonight against the Lightning. The Jackets who have won three straight on the road in large part due to Saturday's thrilling comeback with three goals in the final three minutes of regulation in Sunrise, Fla. for their 3-1 win over the Panthers.

The team has been here in Tampa since Saturday night leading Coach Hitchcock to quip... "Hopefully we will still have our edge, we have been in Florida too long, and some of our skin colors have changed."

Steve Mason starts in goal... he is ready to go after a couple days of rest and YES!... tonight's game is in HD on FOX Sports Ohio. Enjoy it.

Hitch hinted that one or both of Jason Chimera and or Freddie Modin will rejoin the team for practice when the Jackets return to Columbus after tonight's tilt.
