Columbus Blue Jackets center Derek MacKenzie is questionable for Saturday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.
MacKenzie sat out Saturday morning's skate due to the flu.
The 30-year-old MacKenzie has five goals and five assists in 46 games this season.
As the Detroit Red Wings prepare to face off against the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight (7 PM EST, FSD Plus/FS Ohio/WXYT), little news is in fact excellent news. MLive’s Ansar Khan reports via Twitter that the Wings will make only one subtle tweak, inserting a player who Columbus banished to the minors last season—but they won’t see a certain former Wing tonight, either:

But that was on Long Island and this is Joe Louis Arena, baby.And what a shocker - we get no help from the...
Just a couple quick trade hitters for you: This from ESPN's Lebrun: Nearly every buyer you talk to lists a top-six forward as an item on their wish list before the Feb. 27 trade deadline. What the trade market needs is more teams to declare themselves sellers and out of the playoff race. But it’s still too early for that. That’s what happens with so much parity in the...
