Distracted Jackets host Lightning in home opener

The Pierre-Luc Dubois situation has dominated the conversation with the Columbus Blue Jackets through four tough games to start the season.

The Blue Jackets will try to set that distraction aside when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning -- the team that knocked them out of the playoffs five months ago -- in Thursday night's home opener, the start of a four-game homestand in the Ohio capital.

Dubois, who signed a two-year, $10 million contract on Dec. 31, has said he wants out of Columbus.
