Blue Jackets getting ready to face an old foe in Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night

Two days after Columbus opened the preseason with a 4-1 win in Nationwide Arena vs. Buffalo on Tuesday, the Blue Jackets will get back in action Thursday with their first road game.

They will face a familiar foe in fellow Metropolitan Division rival, the Pittsburgh, Penguins.

The Penguins enter 2019-20 with their sights set on returning to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the 14th consecutive season. They currently hold the NHL’s longest active streak ahead of the Capitals and Predators (5 each; 2014-15—2018-19).

The Penguins have firepower in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but also in Jake Guentzel led Pittsburgh with a career-high 40 goals last season and finished third in team scoring. He can become the first Penguins player to score at least 40 goals in consecutive seasons since Jagr from 1998-99 to 2000-01.

The tentative CBJ roster for Thursday night’s game at Pittsburgh is as follows.
