Jackets Return Home To Host Central Division Rival Chicago
The Columbus Blue Jackets (2-5-0, 4 pts.) will conclude its preseason schedule playing host to the Chicago Blackhawks tonight, before taking on the Nashville Predators on Sunday.

The Blue Jackets are 2-1-0 at home this preseason, having won two straight home games. The Blackhawks (4-2-0), meanwhile, have split their last four games, after winning the first two at home. Chicago has posted a 1-1 record on the road this season, and will conclude its preseason schedule playing at St. Louis on Sunday.

Chicago and Columbus met earlier this preseason, with the Blackhawks prevailing at the United Center, 3-2,  last Sunday. Kyle Calder scored two goals for Chicago and Rene Bourque had the game winner, 0:55 into the third period. Trevor Letowski and Steven Goertzen scored for the Jackets, while Pascal Leclaire and Tomas Popperle combined to stop 29-of-32 shots in the loss.

The two teams will square off eight times this season, with the first meeting on Oct. 9.

Tonight's game will be broadcast on the Blue Jackets Radio Network, including flagship stations 1460 The Fan and CD101 in Columbus.
