Should James Wisniewski be capable of returning to the Blue Jackets lineup Sunday, he's expected to be paired with usual defense partner Jack Johnson.

The return of Wisniewski would be a big boost for the Jackets, who have had to lean far too heavily on Johnson during his absence. Given how severe the injury appeared when it happened and the fact that Wisniewski reportedly doesn't recall suffering it to begin with, his return on Sunday would be a fortunate result for everyone involved. The fact that David Savard was sent down to Springfield of the AHL is probably a good indication that Wisniewski should be in the lineup.
