It appears that Columbus agitator Derek Dorsett still isn't thrilled with Stars forward James Neal. This was in a Blue Jackets notebook in The Columbus Dispatch this morning:
Expect a little extra juice tonight when the Dallas Stars play in Nationwide Arena.
On Nov. 19, Dorsett was hit from behind by Dallas winger James Neal, suffering a concussion that kept him out for three weeks.
He vowed to seek revenge, but was out of the lineup because of a broken hand the next two times (Dec. 23 and Jan. 10) the Blue Jackets played the Stars.
"Oh, yeah, I still remember it," Dorsett said. "I'm still not happy about it."
But he has to be smart tonight.
"I'm not going to go out there running around and running people when I can't answer the bell because of this," Dorsett said, looking at his hand. "That's what made me mad in the first place -- the stuff he did, and then I go after him and he doesn't answer the bell.
"I'm not going to stoop to his level and play that way."
