Foligno returns for Blue Jackets on Tuesday

Who better to respond to John Tortorella’s latest round of critiques – this time toward Columbus’ veteran players – than the Blue Jackets’ captain?

That’s the opportunity on Tuesday night, as Nick Foligno is slated to return after missing the past three games with an undisclosed injury.

David Clarkson appears to be the odd man out with Foligno coming back.

It won’t be easy by any stretch for Foligno and the Blue Jackets as they host the dangerous Dallas Stars in Columbus tonight. Then again, sometimes generating a dramatic achievement is the best way to break out of a funk, right?
