Nick Foligno (lower body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Foligno is expected to miss a week or two, so his move to the IR makes sense. It also corresponds with the Blue Jackets claiming Taylor Chorney off waivers.

Columbus has claimed Taylor Chorney off waivers from Washington.

Chorney has a goal and four points in 24 games this season. The Blue Jackets have two injured defensemen in Dean Kukan and Markus Nutivaara while Jack Johnson has requested a trade, so they could use the defensive depth right now.

Scott Harrington scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 win against New Jersey on Tuesday.

Harrington hasn't done much offensively this season as that was his second goal and fourth point in 29 games this season. It was also his first career game-winning goal in 76 contests.
Feb 21 - 10:43 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky turned aside 30 of 31 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Bobrovsky gave up just one goal, but there's no doubt that he'd like to have it back, as Devils forward Taylor Hall beat with a wrist shot from a decent distance. Other than the Hall goal, Bobrovsky did a nice job of giving his team a chance to win. He now has a 25-19-5 record with a 2.46 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage this season.
Feb 20 - 10:33 PM

Boone Jenner scored a goal in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Jenner buried a rebound after Blue Jackets defenseman Zach Werenski rang a shot off the post. The tally gave Columbus a 1-0 lead at the time. Jenner finished the game with a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and three hits in 16:03 of ice time. The goal was his first in nine games. The 24-year-old is having a disappointing year, as he has just six goals and 18 points in 53 games this season. Teammate Scott Harrington added the game-winning goal in the second frame.
Feb 20 - 10:27 PM

Jussi Jokinen will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

It's the first time that Jokinen will serve as a healthy scratch since becoming a member of the Blue Jackets in mid-January. He has one goal and six assists in 45 games with Edmonton, Los Angeles and Columbus.
