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

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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
