The Blue Jackets practiced for 45 minutes. Anisimov will try to acclimate himself to the time change which is a nine hour difference between Sochi and Columbus. "By 3 p.m. today, I know I will be so tired, but I won't let myself go to sleep that early," Anisimov said. "No pillows, no sofas, and no TV around me. Just drink some coffee, keep moving, get some work done . . . but stay awake until bedtime." Anisimov has 13 goals and 26 points in 58 games this season so we really cannot recommend him at this time.
