Kris Russell fracture his left ankle

The Blue Jackets were shut out for the fourth time in their last 11 games Tuesday, a 3-0 loss in Dallas. They've scored just 41 goals in 20 games since Feb. 25, going 3-10-7 in that stretch.

The Blue Jackets have scored just 41 power play goals this season, tied for 28th in the NHL. Unless they score a goal with the man advantage in the last two games, they'll match a franchise record for fewest power play goals in a season. Oddly, it was set during the 2008-09 season, the only season the Blue Jackets made the playoffs."I knew right away, just from the way that he reacted. I knew it was bad."
