After a very exciting Owner’s Tournament for the Jackets they will be experiencing a rare occurrence in the NHL with a split squad game tomorrow. Their opponent will be the Winnipeg Jets, even though most of the coverage online still has a Atlanta Thrashers logo still in place. At the end of last season and after more than ten years the Jets returned to Winnipeg after the Thrashers ran into financial hardships. Tomorrow the citizens of Manitoba will be glued to their television sets and radios as the puck finally drops again in Winnipeg an hour and a half after it does in Columbus.
As for Columbus, hockey is burning in our hearts. The turnout for the Owners’ tournament was massive.
