From Pat Hickey in Columbus:
Former Canadiens goalie Mathieu Garon will get the start tonight
for the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Garon, who is a backup to Steve Mason, is 2-0
this season with a 1.61 GAA and .938 save percentage.
Both of his victories have come at home.
Despite our earlier report saying Jaroslav Spacek would miss Tuesday night’s game, that is not the case. He will play, meaning Ryan O’Byrne and Alexandre Picard will watch the game from the press box.
Head coach Jacques Martin says he spoke with Spacek and told him he is looking for more consistency from the veteran defenceman.
Up front, Dustin Boyd will be back in the lineup, on a line with Lars Eller and Maxim Lapierre.
