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

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
