AT THE ARENA GUIDE
: Are you planning on attending tonight's game at Nationwide Arena? We've compiled a list of all that's going on at the rink for fans in attendance, including contests, giveaways and more!

* Doors will open tonight at 6:00 p.m. for the 7:00 p.m. puck drop.

* It’s Columbus Chill Reunion Night! Tonight we’re recognizing the 20th anniversary of the ECHL franchise. Look for a ceremonial puck drop featuring Lance Brady, Derek Clancey, Jeff Salajko and Rob Schriner, a video tribute of Columbus hockey history and Chill alumni participating in-game in various activities.

* All fans in attendance tonight will receive a Blue Jackets team poster, presented by Nationwide Insurance. Featuring the entire Blue Jackets roster, it will look perfect on that space on your wall that needs filled.

* Over 22,000 of you voted and Victor the Dalmatian is your champ in the Petland Favorite Pet Contest. Look for him next to the zamboni entrance tonight on the dasher board.

* Tonight is another 50/50 Raffle night, presented by Coldwell Banker. Look for your 50/50 volunteers in the blue aprons to purchase your ticket for only $1! Tonight’s beneficiary is our own Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation, which uses the funds for our four pillars of giving including: Pediatric Cancer, Education, Children's Health & Safety and Youth & Amateur Hockey Development.

ANOTHER CLASSIC:
The Blue Jackets were down 2-0 less than nine minutes into the game against the Panthers on Jan. 19, 2011, but rallied back to tie it late and win in overtime thanks to R.J. Umberger's deflection.

Relive it with these highlights:


1:50 P.M.:
PANTHERS LINEUP


The Panthers did not skate this morning after arriving late last night from St. Paul. Tonight's game is pretty important for them, too - with the Washington Capitals winning in Boston last night and Florida only getting a point against the Wild, the Panthers' lead in the Southeast Division is down to four games with four games to play.

Barring any last-minute roster changes, they are expected to use the same lineup but the starting goaltender is not yet known. Scott Clemmensen, who has played well of late, could get the start after Theodore played in Minnesota.

Fleischmann-Weiss-Upshall
Bergenheim-Goc-Kopecky
Wolski-Matthias-Versteeg
Sturm-Madden-Smithson

Garrison-Campbell
Jovanovski-Gudbranson
Kulikov-Weaver

Theodore
Clemmensen
