After going to extra time twice on Sunday versus the Penguins, Columbus will turn around to face their former Central Division rivals in St. Louis in an almost-completely meaningless preseason game. As of 7:00 PM Monday, neither team has announced their roster for the game. We’ll update this post once we hear something concrete.
Until then, here’s who I want to see play, based on lineup intrigue:
Kirill Marchenko – Marchy returned to the ice on Sunday after dealing with some back problems, but didn’t play in either game. If he’s ready to go Tuesday, I’d want to see him play and challenge for a Top 6 spot.
