The Blue Jackets are ready to take on the Philadelphia Flyers tonight, looking to get back in the win column. The game will be Scott Hartnell's return to the City of Brotherly Love, but there are some other important returns on the horizon for the Blue Jackets. Sergei Bobrovsky and Artem Anisimov appear to be very close to full-time action, and Brandon Dubinsky continues to progress on schedule. Excited? We thought so! Here's what Jackets fans are talking about this week...
One player on his way back soon is Brandon Dubinsky. The Hockey Writers know that his passion and work ethic have been sorely missed this season. THW discuss what Dubi's return will mean for Columbus.
Dubinsky is only one of a few players heading back to the lineup shortly. The Cannon will be glad to hear that. For all the injuries this team has suffered, The Cannon knows the center position has been hit particularly hard.
