Jackets to be without Umberger in Game 6

Columbus, OH (Sports Network) - The Columbus Blue Jackets are facing elimination in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series, and will have to win on Monday without the services of forward R.J. Umberger.

Jackets head coach Todd Richards confirmed that Umberger suffered a shoulder injury during Saturday's 3-1 Game 5 loss at Pittsburgh, which gave the Penguins the lead in this best-of-seven set.

Jared Boll will take Umberger's place in the lineup.

Umberger has collected one assist and is a minus-2 through four previous appearances in the series. He was scratched from Game 1 due to various "upper- body" ailments, with Boll inserted for his only action in these playoffs.
