The Florida Panthers conclude a 5 game road trip today in Columbus when they take on the Blue Jackets. They previously faced the central division opponent in January, losing 3-2 in OT on the 19th. Fedor Tyutin, RJ Umburger, and Andrew Vermette scored the three goals, while David Booth and Corey Stillman scored against Columbus. (Chris Higgins has 2 goals against the Blue Jackets, but both were scored as a member of the Vancouver Canucks). Columbus will most likely not make the playoffs, but they are still playing for a .500 record and are not a team to face lightly. Scott Clemmensen will take the place of the day-to-day Tomas Vokoun in the Panther net.
