Isles winless at Nationwide Arena

That's right. Columbus' Nationwide Arena is the only current NHL venue in which the Isles have yet to record a win.

The Blue Jackets have won five straight at home against the Islanders and head into tonight's tilt on an impressive tear considering their post-season hopes have been squashed.

The Blue Jackets have won five out of their last eight games, including a big 8-3 win over the Blackhawks Thursday despite the fact they occupy 14th place in the Western Conference, 17 points behind 8th place Detroit.

Meanwhile in the East, the 14th place Islanders are only 8 points removed from 8th place Boston. 

*In case you didn't catch my updates Thursday, Bruno Gervais is day-to-day with a groin strain and Dustin Kohn is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Isles skate at 11:30. More later
