Columbus Blue Jackets (9-22-5, 23 pts) @ Dallas Stars (20-14-1, 41 pts)
7:30 PM CT, December 29, 2011
American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas
If Kari Lehtonen wanted to try and ease his way back into the lineup, there might not be a better team to do that against than the Columbus Blue Jackets. Lethonen makes his long awaited return to the Stars lineup tonight after missing the past month (12 games) due to a groin injury. He gets some good news and bad news in his first game back.
The good news? His opponent tonight is the Columbus Blue Jackets, the worst team in the NHL. Columbus gives up the third most goals in the NHL, only in front of the Ottawa Senators and Carolina Hurricanes and they score the fourth least goals in the NHL. Add those two together and the Blue Jackets have the worst goal differential in the league.no comments
