COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - It might be the most important regular-season game in Columbus Blue Jackets history - or an ultimately meaningless one.
When they host the Nashville Predators on Saturday night, they still hold out hope of making the Stanley Cup playoffs for only the second time.
Even if they get bumped out - we're looking at you, Detroit Red Wings - what a wild ride it's been.
From dead last in the NHL two months ago to the last game meaning something, this has been a turnaround season for the Blue Jackets and for their Vezina Trophy front-runner as best goaltender, Sergei Bobrovsky.
Both have done a U-turn.
