Seth Jones has spent the Blue Jackets' last two games on the first power-play unit.
Typically the Blue Jackets run four forwards and blueliner Zach Werenski, but their power play had been struggling so coach John Tortorella decided to mix things up. Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno and Artemi Panarin are the three forwards that have remained on the top unit with Werenski and Jones while Alexander Wennberg isn't on either power-play line. Columbus is still 0-for-5 with the man advantage over its last two games, so these changes haven't led to immediate results, but Tortorella has liked what he's seen from the new units, so he might stick with them for now.

Seth Jones didn't want to push too hard to get a hat trick on Tuesday.

Jones scored a pair of goals in that contest and then had a couple opportunities in the third where he could have tried to get something going, but he played conservatively instead. Jones pointed to the way the third period was going as the cause as the Blues Jackets' saw their 6-0 lead over the Rangers reduced to 6-4 by the end of the game. "I had the one chance where I could have gone for it, but I wasn't at the red line yet," Jones said. "If I go for it there and ice the puck, and they come down for a faceoff and score. ...; I'm sure the (coaching) staff's not going to be too happy."
