With the worst record in the NHL, the Columbus Blue Jackets (4-9-2) can’t afford for things to get worse, so they’re hoping for good news when doctors examine injured center Brandon Dubinsky on Tuesday after the team comes home from its road trip.

Dubinsky hurt his knee during Saturday’s 5-3 loss at Phoenix and will miss tonight’s game in Anaheim.

“Well, it’s a blow, for sure,” head coach Todd Richards said, per The Dispatch. “You just hope it’s good news Tuesday.”

There is some good news to report today. Defenseman James Wisniewski will be back against the Ducks after his wife gave birth over the weekend.

    Sounds like the new mom should be the Jackets conditioning coach.

    Congrats to the Wiz family!
