Columbus Blue Jackets: In tough playing back-to-back nights without their starting goalie
Displaying grit and determination, after they opened with a dismal 2-10-0 season start, Columbus played some decent hockey in November as the Blue Jackets posted an 8-5-0 record last month. Though they have been earning points, wins have been fleeting in December as Columbus is 1-3-3 through seven games this month. Following a hard fought 2-1 loss, at home to Tampa Bay last night, Columbus is playing on back-to-back nights with travel as they roll into the Lone Star State. The Blue Jackets are 13 points out of a playoff spot in the NHL Eastern Conference.

Dallas enters action fresh off two rest and the Stars are 6-1-1 in that situation so far this season. Playing on back-to-back nights has not be kind to Columbus as they 3-5-0 and four of the five losses were on the road. Filling in for Sergei Bobrovsky, who is sidelined with a groin injury, Curtis McElhinney (0-5-2 GAA 3.11) is looking for his win of the season as he get the call in net for Columbus tonight.
