Bobrovsky had an easy time of it this night as the Blue Jackets doused the Flames 5-1. Nick Foligno scored twice in a 51-second span. Add to that an Artem Anisimov goal and Columbus had three goals in 75 seconds to break open a 1-1 game.

It’s not quite time to hop of the Bobrovsky Bandwagon but be don’t be surprised if you need to find the nearest emergency exit in case of an ...

The thought crossed my mind just prior to the opening puck drop that the Columbus Blue Jackets recent play was reminiscent of how Nashville has won a lot of games over the last several years. Consistently good goaltending, hard work, scoring by committee and a team-wide commitment to defense has resulted in a lot of wins for Nashville and Columbus used that same model during their...
