Welcome back everybody. Hope those of us to the north enjoyed their regular Thursday and everybody who celebrated American Thanksgiving had a happy one. Tonight at 7 EST, the Wings resume their schedule with a game against the Blue Jackets in Columbus. The BJs have been the hottest thing going since they unseeded the last hottest thing going when they crushed the Blues 8-1 back on the 10th. If logic serves me correctly (which it rarely does), this means beating Columbus should make Detroit the hottest thing going.
That would be a good thing, because (using the sliding scale), Detroit has lost two of three games, including a stinker on Wednesday in Atlanta. The home-and-home series this weekend will help decide who's going to be at the top of the Central division standings going into next week. Detroit and Columbus are tied with 28 points apiece with the Wings holding a game in hand.
The Cannon is your SB nation blog for the Blue Jackets

- The Jackets will be wearing their new third jerseys tonight. I have to admit I kind of like the cannon, but we've seen the theme everywhere. I'm so tired of this same look on every team's third jerseys. What do you think?
