Columbus Blue Jackets center Alexander Wennberg may return from an upper-body injury when the Carolina Hurricanes visit the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena on Tuesday. Wennberg has missed six games since he last played Nov. 11 at the Detroit Red Wings.
The Blue Jackets look to rebound after a 3-1 loss at the Montreal Canadiens on Monday ended a six-game winning streak.
Carolina tries for its second straight win and fourth in the past six games after defeating the Nashville Predators 4-3 in a shootout on Sunday.
The Hurricanes are 11-3-3 vs. the Blue Jackets the past 17 games, including 1-0-1 this season.
Players to watch
Hurricanes forward Teuvo Teravainen has 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in his past seven games. He assisted on two goals by center Jordan Staal when the Hurricanes defeated the Blue Jackets 3-1 at Columbus on Nov. 10.
Blue Jackets rookie center Pierre-Luc Dubois, who scored his fourth goal of the season Monday, may shift back to his natural wing position when Wennberg returns.
