The odd journey for the Columbus Blue Jackets is starting to find some normalization. Well kind of.

Defenseman Ryan Murray is injured and won't be playing against the St. Louis Blues. Scott Harrington will take his spot in the lineup and will hopefully make enough of an impact. Murray will miss the game due to inflammation that took place after he took a shot off of the knee during the Blue Jackets last game against the Montreal Canadiens.

After his tantrums put him in the doghouse momentarily, goaltender Joonas Korpisalo finds himself back in the starters net. Korpisalo has been the presumed starter for most of the season and it wasn't immediately clear how long how he would sit out. After a strong performance from Elvis Merzlikins against the Montreal Canadiens, it put the goaltending under a spotlight. 

Korpisalo will get the opportunity and will have a microscope on his play in the meantime.
