The Columbus Blue Jackets were in their first game of the season at home and for the occasion they honored Matiss Kivlenieks, who tragically passed away last July. They defeated the Coyotes quite convincingly. Brad Larsen’s squad won by a score of 8-2.
Moreover, Elvis Merzlikins, a good friend of Kivlenieks, wore his sweater during the warm-up period.

In the victory, the former Canadian, Max Domi, had three points and Oliver Bjorkstrand had four.
For the Jackets’ opponent, the Coyotes, it was the first game of their new head coach, André Tourigny. Needless to say, he didn’t expect such an outcome for his first career NHL game.
