The Columbus Blue Jackets were blanked by the Vancouver Canucks in a 3-0 loss on Thursday.

Saad and Atkinson led the way for the Blue Jackets with four shots a piece but neither of them could beat Miller who looked really sharp tonight. The Blue Jackets have now lost five of their last seven games and need some work if they'd like to get back to their early season form. They'll look to bounce back on Saturday in Detroit.

Brandon Saad will be in the lineup on Wednesday.

That might sound obvious and on other days it would have been, but Saad was in danger of being a healthy scratch after a rough showing on Sunday. Saad practiced on the fourth line on Monday and didn't have a clear role Tuesday morning, but now it looks like he'll end up playing with Alexander Wennberg and Nick Foligno.
Wed, Nov 9, 2016 01:23:00 PM

It's entirely possible that Brandon Saad will be a healthy scratch on Wednesday.

Saad didn't participate in the power-play drills during Tuesday's practice and was a fill-in for Cam Atkinson on a line with Brandon Dubinsky and Boone Jenner. Atkinson is still expected to play on Wednesday, so that raises questions about if Saad has a role with the team for that game. This comes after Saad practiced as a fourth liner on Monday. If Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella scratches Saad on Wednesday, it will be sending a message after Saad's rough performance on Saturday.

Brandon Saad registered two assists in a 3-2 overtime victory Tuesday night.

That extended Saad's point streak to four games. He's recorded three goals and seven points in eight contests this season.
