Columbus Blue Jackets forwards Cam Atkinson and Nathan Gerbe were held out of the lineup for Game 2 against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday after the team deemed them unfit to play.

Devin Shore and Emil Bemstrom drew into the lineup.

Atkinson accumulated 39:49 minutes of ice time in the marathon Game 1, while Gerbe played 17:23. Their injuries remain unknown as both players managed to finish the contest and took shifts throughout.

In six games this postseason, Atkinson has posted two goals and three assists. Gerbe, who's only appeared in two contests so far, has gone pointless.

Bemstrom appeared in three contests prior to Game 2, also recording no points. Shore made his postseason debut.
