Jackets shorthanded?

On his Columbus Dispatch blog, Aaron Portzline reports that three forwards and one defenseman are injured for the Blue Jackets and that their status for tonight’s game is in doubt. Portzline said coach Ken Hitchcock did not name the players, and that the Blue Jackets have only two spare forwards, so things could get interesting. Steve Mason will face Jonathan Quick in a matchup of goalies playing on back-to-back nights.
