Wisniewski’s vomit-inducing game lifts Blue Jackets over Devils

- October 23rd, 2013

James Wisniewski put on a vomit-inducing performance Tuesday night.

Literally.

Battling the flu and pounding energy drinks all day, the Columbus Blue Jackets blueliner puked twice on the ice against the New Jersey Devils.

You might think Wisniewski and Columbus would have been better off had he spent the game in the press box, but you would be wrong. He tied a career-high with three points (one goal, two assists) en route to a 4-1 Blue Jackets victory.

Wisniewski told reporters he woke up at 6 a.m. and “fluids” were leaving his body. He skipped the morning skate and was a game-time decision. All he ate that day was a bowl of cereal and energy drinks.

Think about that next time you ponder calling in sick.
