Audio:

Jacob Trouba: Do they have to change mindset considering they have a first time netminder in between the pipes?  What have the Jets been doing well the last five games in the defensive zone?  On the excitement added when you have two guys making their NHL debuts.  Helping to keep Roslovic/Comrie loose.

Eric Comrie:  How is his mindset?  How was last night?  Hoping for some early touches?  Family in attendance?  How many folks here?  Who came?  On the message from the coach.  How much did his phone blow up yesterday?  Any special notes?

Jack Roslovic:  How was his night last night and today’s skate.  How is he spending his day?  How many people does he have coming to the game?  What will be going through his mind during the anthem?  Making his NHL debut in an arena he is very familiar with.  First born and raised Columbus born player making his debut in the city.  Did he hear from some of his old coaches?  What does it mean to have all the support?  What will it be like being on the other side of the Cannon?

Coach Maurice:  Added excitement in the room for the NHL debut of Comrie/Roslovic?  How did he decide where to slot in Roslovic?  Challenge that the Blue Jackets present.  On how Columbus has built a winning culture.
