Found April 13, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
My 3 Stars of the Game 1. Cam Atkinson, CBJ. 1 goal, 1 assist, generally wreaked havoc around the ice. 2. Sergei Bobrovsky, CBJ. After the Shattenkirk goal just 1:16 in, he was solid and kept the Jackets in long enough for the rest of the team to get going. 3. Ryan Johansen, CBJ. Showed flashes of why he went #6 overall just a couple seasons ago. *** Good/Bad It was mostly bad. S...

It's deja vu all over again for the Columbus Blue Jackets

Today marks the biggest game of the year for the Columbus Blue Jackets. Again. But this dj vu is quite acceptable. Its definitely not Phil Connors (Bill Murrays) Groundhog Day dj vu, with Sonny and Cher still blurting Ive Got You, Babe after the radio has been smashed beyond recognition. Games like tonights mammoth matchup with the St. Louis Blues at Nationwide Arena are exactly...

NHL's Fight Night Featuring Jared Boll of the Columbus Blue Jackets

Rumor has it that there is still professional boxing matches taking place somewhere, but it seems like the better fights are on the ice these days. Take this scuffle from Saturday night's Columbus Blue Jackets/Minnesota Wild game. Columbus's Jared Boll  controls this one pretty much from the start and puts a good hurting on Minnesota's Clayton Stoner. I hear...

Coyle received a match penalty and 5 for fighting and Anisimov did not return to the game. First the Columbus broadcast followed by the Wild broadcast below. Best to watch the replays from both feeds after the fight to get a better view of the hit.     Continue reading "Video- Two Views Of The Charlie Coyle Hit On Artem Anisimov"

Gaborik Lighting It Up for Columbus

Whether you liked Marian Gaborik or not, there's no denying the guy knew how to find the back of the net (minus this year with the Rangers) and he's proving that once again since the Blueshirts traded him to Columbus. In the four games since the Blue Jackets acquired Gaborik for Derick Brassard, John Moore and Derek Dorsett, he has 2g, 3a, is a +3 and has 12 shots on...

Jared Boll wrecks Clayton Stoner in fight

On Saturday night Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jared Boll and Minnesota Wild defenseman Clayton Stoner went at it in a rematch of their tilt from January 29th.  The last time these two heavyweights fought it was a solid draw, but this time Boll (6’3″ 195 lbs) destroyed Stoner (6’4″ 228 lbs).  Boll must really hate Stoner because he broke the unspoken code that you don’t...

Blue Jackets edge Wild in shootout 3-2

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Mark Letestu and Cam Atkinson scored in a shootout to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Minnesota Wild 3-2 on Saturday. The Blue Jackets won their third straight and pulled even with Detroit and Dallas for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with 45 points.

Springfield, MA, April 14, 2013 – Rookie Boone Jenner scored with 28.8 seconds left in the third period Sunday at the MassMutual Center, to give the Springfield Falcons a 4-3 victory over the Connecticut Whale. Jenner, playing only his second game since joining the Falcons from the Ontario Hockey League, got his stick free at the side of the goal crease and stuffed the puck...

Charlie Coyle tossed from the game for what appears to be a legal hit on Artem Anisimov

Charlies Coyle's night lasted a grand total of 17 seconds and he was thrown out of the game for what appears to be a legal shoulder-to-shoulder hit on Blue Jackets forward Artem Anisimov. For his efforts, Coyle was given a five minute major for contact to the head and a match penalty, and also received a five minute major for fighting. While Coyle is not known for his fighting...

Glen Miller: Another Must Win Tonight for Columbus

Prior to last week’s game with Minnesota I referred to the contest as a “Must Win.” After dropping that matchup and falling further behind in the playoff race, Columbus’ next game against San Jose was a “Must, Must Win.” The Jackets came through for the home fans led by Marian Gaborik (two points) and Sergei Bobrovksy (30 saves), who posted his fourth...

Blue Jackets-Avalanche Preview

If the Columbus Blue Jackets qualify for the postseason, Sergei Bobrovsky deserves plenty of the credit. He'll look to help guide visiting Columbus to a fourth consecutive victory as it continues its playoff push Monday night against the last-place Colorado Avalanche. The Blue Jackets (19-16-7) had an NHL-worst 13 points after their fourth consecutive defeat March 1, but they...

Glen Miller: Jackets Won't Go Away Quietly

With their playoff chances hanging by a thread, the Columbus Blue Jackets came up big in a 4 - 1 win over the St. Louis Blues. The victory was the second in a row for the Jackets over a team in possession of a playoff spot in the West and snapped St. Louis' six-game winning streak. Columbus entered play with just a 7.4% chance of qualifying for the postseason but after Friday...

Glen Miller: Columbus Sneak Away w/ Two Points, Now Tied For 8th In West

I've mentioned the words Vezina Trophy and Sergei Bobrovsky in the same breath a lot of late. Now I wonder if Hart Trophy and Bobrovsky should begin to enter the discussion as well. Sergei Bobrovsky was brilliant again, stopping 39 of 41 shots against Saturday and the Jackets used a two goal second period to ensure OT (and a precious point) before ultimately dropping Minnesota...

NEW YORK (April 15, 2013) – Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, Toronto Maple Leafs right wing Phil Kessel and Dallas Stars goaltender Richard Bachman have been named the NHL’s “Three Stars” for the week ending April 14. Continue reading "Stars Of The Week"
