Projected lineup for Blue Jackets

Here is the lineup the Columbus Blue Jackets likely will use when they play the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday:

RJ Umberger - Ryan Johansen - Nick Foligno

Matt Calvert - Artem Anisimov - Cam Atkinson

Vinny Prospal - Mark Letestu - Derek Dorsett

Colton Gillies - Derek MacKenzie - Jared Boll

Fedor Tyutin - Nikita Nikitin

Tim Erixon - Adrian Aucoin

Dalton Prout - Cody Goloubef

Scratched: Nick Drazenovich

Injured: Brandon Dubinsky, James Wisniewski, Jack Johnson, John Moore

No word on who the starting goaltender could be. Steve Mason played Friday, stopping 30 of 34 shots in the Blue Jackets' 4-3 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. In 12 career games against the Avalanche, he's 4-6-2 with a 3.27 goals-against average and .891 save percentage. Sergei Bobrovsky has faced the Avs just twice in his career, going 1-1-0 with a 3.00 GAA and .891 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.

— Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello on goaltender Jonathan Bernier
