News

Savard might have his ice time reduced over the final two games of the regular season, Tom Reed of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Impact

The Blue Jackets' depth on the blue line has been tested down the stretch with both Zach Werenski (shoulder) and Ryan Murray (hand) sidelined, and now that their first-round playoff matchup is set in stone, coach John Tortorella may want to give his key defensemen a bit of a break prior to their postseason showdown with the Penguins. Savard has carried a heavy load this season, averaging 21:46 a night, and if Werenski can't return for the start of the playoffs that ice time will probably increase with Savard and Jack Johnson forming the Jackets' most reliable defensive duo. Getting fewer shifts this weekend might help keep some pep in Savard's postseason step.
