If their last game was any indication, each team should be ready once the puck is dropped. The Penguins edged the Jackets, 3-2, in a shootout last Thursday at PPG Paints Arena to start the season series, but that game was a lot more than the final score.

It looked like two old rivals going after each other, even though their rivalry is still in its early stages.

All it takes is a glance back at the game last week to see why.

There were numerous post-whistle skirmishes. There were a couple fights that officially went down in the scoresheet as roughing penalties. Then, there was Lukas Sedlak, the Jackets' fourth-line center, challenging Penguins enforcer Ryan Reaves in the first period, after Reaves ran Markus Hannikainen into the boards.

Sedlak, who's smaller, lost the fight decisively. He won a lot of respect from his teammates. It was that kind of night, and that wasn't the only notable altercation.

Columbus also lost forward Boone Jenner after the second period ended, when he was assessed a game misconduct for a crosschecking major. The game misconduct was later rescinded, but Jenner's absence for the third period, overtime and the shootout was still a point of contention afterward.

Penguins star forward Evgeni Malkin also caught Columbus captain Nick Foligno with a gloved punch to the face late in the second, Seth Jones and Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby were paired off at one point and both sides used the term "rivalry" to explain what led to it all.

"That drags you right into the game when you get some fights," Calvert said. "I know it sparks me. It gets me going on the bench, and helps my game out."

Now, it's time for Round 2.

The Blue Jackets, however, will have a significantly different look up front. Since the first game, they've lost center Alexander Wennberg (back injury) and forward Cam Atkinson (fractured foot) for 4-to-6 weeks each.

Combined with defenseman Zach Werenski (undisclosed), defenseman Ryan Murray (upper body) and center Brandon Dubinsky (orbital bone fracture), that's nearly one-third of the Jackets' usual starting lineup unable to play.

Reinforcements from the Cleveland Monsters of the American Hockey League were recalled Tuesday, but this will be the start of a challenging stretch for the Jackets.
