The Columbus Blue Jackets continue their road trip with a Sunday evening collision with the Vegas Golden Knights and the legends row of former Blue Jackets on the roster.

William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault, Keegan Kolesar, and Jonathan Quick are in this game for Vegas.

Quick has been on a roll since the three team trade, including a shutout and his best save percentage since the playoff Kings years.

Columbus and Vegas last played on November 28, in a Columbus shootout victory.

Vegas is still riding high being one of the best teams in the Pacific, and have also added forwards Teddy Bleuger and Ivan Barbashev at the deadline.

In regards to the lineups, get ready for legend Quick to battle former Vegas keeper Michael Hutchinson.

Players to Watch

Vegas — William Karlsson — 5 points in his last 5. Has more goals this season than last, but it’s not his first year magic.

Columbus — Jack Roslovic — pointless on this road trip. Needs to get on the board.

Predicted Final Score
