The Columbus Blue Jackets will go into tonight’s Game 2 without Nick Foligno once again.

Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch says Foligno is out of Game 2 tonight in Pittsburgh but is hoping to be ready for Game 3 in Columbus on Monday.

Foligno has been out of the Blue Jackets lineup since April 3 with a knee injury. In 70 games with the Jackets this season, he had 18 goals and 39 points. He’s tied for fourth on the team in goals with R.J. Umberger and tied for fifth in points with Artem Anisimov.

Perhaps more importantly for the fresh-faced Blue Jackets, Foligno has playoff experience from his years with the Ottawa Senators. With the Jackets not exactly being a regular in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, they can use all the previous experience they can through others.

    He’s been a big help to this rebuilt Columbus team and I do hope he can draw in game 3. This coming from a penguins fan, don’t like to see guys miss the best part of the season especially if they contributed to get their team in the post season.
