Short-handed Blue Jackets visit Predators

Missing yet another important player from their lineup, the Columbus Blue Jackets will look to pick up a big road victory against the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Oliver Bjorkstrand sustained a sprained and fractured ankle in the Blue Jackets' 4-3 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday, and a projected eight- to 10-week recovery period will keep Bjorkstrand sidelined for at least the rest of the regular season.

That leaves Columbus without its leading goal-scorer, as Bjorkstrand joins a long list of notable players -- including Cam Atkinson, Seth Jones, Joonas Korpisalo -- on the Jackets' injured reserve. While no team can get used to playing without so many key players, adjusting to an injury absence "isn't new to us," Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno said.
