The Columbus Blue Jackets will welcome Artem Anisimov back to the lineup Saturday night when they try to clinch the second Stanley Cup Playoff berth in franchise history.
"He's good to go," coach Todd Richards said of Anisimov, who hasn't played in two weeks due to a concussion.
The Blue Jackets can get in if they beat the Nashville Predators at Nationwide Arena and either the Colorado Avalanche defeat the Minnesota Wild in any fashion or the Dallas Stars defeat the Detroit Red Wings in regulation.
The Blue Jackets also earn a spot if they earn a point and the Avalanche defeat the Wild in regulation.
Here's how the Blue Jackets lines project:
Vinny Prospal - Mark Letestu - Marian Gaborik
Blake Comeau - Brandon Dubinsky- Cam Atkinson
RJ Umberger - Ryan Johansen - Nick Foligno
Derek MacKenzie - Artem Anisimov - Jared Boll
Jack Johnson - Dalton Prout
Fedor Tyutin - James Wisniewski
Tim Erixon - Adrian Aucoin
