Slumping Blue Jackets aim to break out vs. Predators

The Columbus Blue Jackets are tired of talking.

They've lost five of their past six games, including a 2-0 loss Thursday against visiting Chicago.

"In a game like (that) where it's just a grind, you got to find a way, dig a little deeper to get that next one, and we just couldn't come up with it," Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno said. "This is where we find ourselves right now. I think everyone's tired of the rhetoric and just saying things."
