Dubinsky back for Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets go for their sixth straight win Tuesday when they host the Vancouver Canucks at Nationwide Arena.

Sergei Bobrovsky, named Monday as the NHL's First Star of the Week, will be back in net. In four games last week, he was 4-0-0 with a 0.77 goals-against average, .972 save percentage and one shutout.

Returning to the lineup is center Brandon Dubinsky, who has been out for a month with a knee injury. In 15 games, Dubinsky -- who last played Feb. 16 -- has a goal and seven assists.

Quote of the Day

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
