Icebreaker: Blue Jackets at Flyers

WHAT: Blue Jackets (14-16-4) at Flyers (15-15-4)

WHEN: Thursday, 7 p.m. on 

WHERE: Wells Fargo Center

Setting the table: We've heard a lot about the Blue Jackets and Penguins being rivals, and also the Blue Jackets-Rangers plot lines run deep for obvious reasons. But fans would be wise to not overlook the Columbus-Philadelphia series, which includes four installments in 2013-14, but in future seasons, could be comprised by as many as five annual meetings. There have been entertaining games in the all-time series between the two, but also, familiar faces are present on both sides. Steve Mason and Jakub Voracek, ex-Blue Jackets, will suit up for the Flyers and one-time Philadelphia playoff legend RJ Umberger is now in his sixth season with Columbus since being acquired via trade in the summer of 2008.
