Blue Jackets’ Ryan Murray Activated From Injured Reserve
The Columbus Blue Jackets have officially activated Ryan Murray, who hasn’t played since October 26th, from the injured reserve list.
In a corresponding move, the Blue Jackets are sending Adam Clendening back down to the minor leagues.
Murray’s career has been marred by injury and inconsistency and will now look to get his career on track following the injury.
Blue Jackets’ Nick Foligno Suspended Three Games
“It is important to note that Foligno is in control of this contact. This is an attempted body check, and cannot be classified as excusable or accidental contact where Foligno raises his arm reflexively to brace for sudden contact or to attempt to avoid a collision. If he wants to deliver this hit, the onus is on Foligno to ensure that he takes an angle of approach that puts him in a position to make a legal, full-body check.”
The league posted the following video regarding the suspension.

Lightning Remaining Positive Despite Facing Elimination
Tampa Bay dropped Game 3 of their opening-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1, and now are faced with a 3-0 deficit, a bleak circumstance for the league-best Lightning.
Despite the pressing situation, Lightning head coach John Cooper is keeping it positive moving forward.
“There was a lot of positive energy in that room after the third period,” Cooper said after Game 3, according to FOX Sports Florida. “Adversity hits in different ways and we haven’t had a lot of it during the regular season and we have it now. We had adversity going into the third period and I thought we responded well and we’ve just got to carry that on.
“As far as I know, we’re playing Tuesday, right? So, we’re still alive.”
Lightning captain Steven Stamkos believes that a third period that saw the Lightning outshoot the Blue Jackets 17-8 could be an indication that Tampa Bay is cracking through.
“We pushed. We pushed hard. If anything, maybe we found a recipe to break some of their structure there,” Stamkos said.
