Who's in for the Blue Jackets?

PHILADELPHIA -- We had our guesses on the Flyers' lineup earlier, so now we'll take a look at the Blue Jackets.

The big change will be Cam Atkinson getting back into the lineup. The forward was recalled from AHL Syracuse this morning, and likely will play on a line with Derek MacKenzie and R.J. Umberger.

The defense pairs were jumbled this morning as James Wisniewski is battling a flu bug and was sent back to the hotel not long after arriving at the rink. Coach Scott Arniel said he's hopeful Wisniewski can play tonight, but won't know until game time.

Here's what the Jackets' lineup could look like tonight against the Flyers:

Rick Nash - Vinny Prospal - Derick Brassard
Matt Calvert - Antoine Vermette - Ryan Johansen
R.J. Umberger - Derek MacKenzie - Cam Atkinson
Alexandre Giroux - Samuel Pahlsson - Cody Bass

James Wisniewski - Fedor Tyutin
Marc Methot - John Moore
Aaron Johnson - Kris Russell

Steve Mason will start in goal, with Allen York backing him up.

Derek Dorsett could get in the lineup in place of Giroux. Dorsett didn't practice Friday due to being "banged up" according to Arniel.

If Wisniewski can't play, then Grant Clitsome, a healthy scratch Thursday against the Maple Leafs, will play.
