It’s the most important game in franchise history, as the Columbus Blue Jackets hope to stay alive in their first-round playoff series with Pittsburgh.

Game Six is Monday night in Nationwide Arena. In Game Five on Saturday, the Jackets blew another lead in a 3-1 loss that puts them down three games to two in the best-of-seven series.

“We’ve had games where we haven’t played our best or maybe the other team has just outplayed us, and we’ve responded the next game, so I’m looking at this as not necessarily an elimination game; I’m looking at this as a rebound game or a response game,” said head coach Todd Richards on Sunday.

The puck drops tonight in Nationwide Arena at 7 o’clock.
