In and Out

Joey Joining Fray
Apparently, Ryan Johansen is expected to return to the lineup on Friday in the Verizon Center. Johansen was out for both of the Jackets victories this season. Joey was supposedly ill and flew back to Columbus last week with a trainer. It was also reported by Aaron Portzline that Johansen was hospitalized this summer for an irregular heart rate. Hopefully, he is back in and helps this team continue its mini-streak.
According to head coach John Tortorella, newly acquired winger Brandon Saad will be missing tomorrow's game against the Capitals. With him out expect more ice time for secondary players, and I am guessing Jared Boll may be drawn into the lineup. We will see what happens tomorrow with his absence.
More to come..
