Happy Halloween! The Blue Jackets are home to host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Halloween night and hope to get back in the win column against a storied member of the Original Six.
The Blue Jackets have been haunted by a frightening number of injuries over the past week, and Blue Jackets fans across the web had their input on how the team should handle those challenges. And no, dressing up as a doctor on Friday night is not a solution!
It's true that the Blue Jackets' injury list has gotten a bit lengthy over the past couple of weeks. But never fear! BS Hockey knows there's still a lot to be optimistic about for hockey fans in Columbus.
Still, the toll has been steep. According to Todd Richards, the team needs to "find solutions". The Cannon agrees and takes a swing at finding some of those answers on this banged up roster.
Not everyone on the team is swatting at the injury bug, and Union and Blue gives a good look at Blue Jackets having a major fantasy impact, especially leading scorer Ryan Johansen.
Even when battling through injuries, this has been a resilient group. Cam Atkinson returned quickly from a facial laceration, and Nick Foligno will hopefully return soon. As the Hockey Writers remind us, this team has battled off the ice to fight through the injury adversity.
