This is an absolute nightmare.

Facing down a critical elimination game against a very tough Pittsburgh Penguins squad, the Columbus Blue Jackets will without one of their most important players this evening. 

Just minutes prior to the game the Blue Jackets officially announced that captain Nick Foligno is unable to play in Game 5 this evening as the result of a lower-body injury. 

It's the playoffs so unsurprisingly the Blue Jackets have provided absolutely no details about the nature of Foligno's injury and have not indicated if he will be available for Game 6 should the Jackets prevail this evening.
