Gameday Updates

Stay tuned, I guess?


So it looks like Rasmussen in, Nielsen out from last game’s lineup. I’m guessing that means Larkin and Fabbri still out, although it could be a game time decision

We haven’t heard anything yet about Fabbri or Larkin coming back in the lineup. They recalled Rasmussen to Detroit, not just to the taxi squad, so I imagine he’ll play tonight, but that’s not a guarantee. For now, I’m using the lines from last game, so please don’t read anything into this.

Also, remember that Nemeth was out due to COVID protocol (which does not necessarily mean a positive COVID test), so it’s entirely possible that other players who played last game could be out of the lineup.


Bobby Ryan — Valtteri Filppula — Anthony Mantha
Filip Zadina — Vladislav Namestnikov — Sam Gagner
Darren Helm — Luke Glendening — Adam Erne
Mathias Bromé — Frans Nielsen — Evgeny Svechnikov


Danny DeKeyser — Filip Hronek
Marc Staal — Jon Merrill
Christian Djoos — Alex Biega


Jonathan Bernier
Thomas Greiss

Columbus Blue Jackets


Laine – Roslovic – Atkinson
Bemstrom – Nash – Bjorkstrand
Domi – Texier – Stenlund
Robinson – Jenner – Foligno


Werenski – Jones
Carlsson – Savard
Gavrikov – Del Zotto



  1. Don’t give up five goals in the third period. I mean, don’t give up five goals in any period, or in the whole game.
  2. Get Laine benched. Spread rumors that make their way to the Blue Jackets locker room that Laine said Tortorella was “friendly.” Point at Laine not back checking on a play and yell to Torts: “Is this your king?!” Something. Keep him off the ice as much as possible.
  3. Close it down. Last game, numerous goals were scored in which the Hawks player with the puck had all sorts of time and space to pick a corner. The team needs to engage sooner on defense to prevent that from happening.
