Cam Atkinson had two goals and two assists, Brandon Dubinsky had a goal and three assists and Matt Calvert also scored for the Blue Jackets, who have won their last four at home.

Calvert broke a 3-all tie when he scored on a rebound after Brodeur blocked Dubinsky's shot 18 seconds into the third period.
The Devils, who dominated long segments of the final period, pulled even with 6:01 remaining when Patrik Elias' sh...

The Columbus Blue Jackets are a professional sports team that plays in the National Hockey League. If you're a regular viewer of SportsCenter, you may not be aware of this fact. You're not alone, though. Not even SportsCenter's most dominating personalities are aware of this fact.
The NHL doesn't get much love on SportsCenter, and the Blue Jackets are perhaps...
via RIA NOVOSTI,
Nikita Nikitin, a defenseman playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League, has told R-Sport he refuses to learn English as he can always rely on fellow Russian teammates.
Nikitin has played in the NHL since 2010 but admitted – in Russian – that “my English isn’t getting any better.”

As unenthused as I was at the beginning of last week, it proved to be a week of relative greatness for the Columbus Blue Jackets (12-15-3). The team managed to shut out both the Tampa Bay Lightning (17-10-2) and the Minnesota Wild (18-9-5). And while they had a tough 2-1 loss last night against the Pittsburgh Penguins (21-10-1), they played tough through out the entire game and it...
"I think we're building something here. It kind of reminds me of our team last year. We finally found out what's working for us, and we're playing our game and playing to our strengths."
That was Columbus winger Matt Calvert talking about his team's play the past three games, two shutout wins, followed by the tough one-goal loss in Pittsburgh Tuesday night...
Somewhere in the skies between Pittsburgh and Columbus late Monday, Blue Jackets right wing Cam Atkinson could tell his linemate, center Brandon Dubinsky, was ready to make amends for his mistake.
Late in a 2-1 loss to the Penguins, Dubinsky was ejected for arguing with NHL officials, keeping him in the dressing room while the Blue Jackets tried in vain to mount a comeback.
The Columbus Blue Jackets have sidelined defenseman James Wisniewski for at least two games with an upper-boy injury suffered in their Friday night victory over the Minnesota Wild.The nature of the injury wasn't made clear, but original indications were that Wisniewski could miss a week, though that has been amended to missing just Monday night's 2-1 loss to the Penguins...

For a variety of reasons, it's a short and early gameday post today. Sorry.
Honestly, with everything going on with the team and the league right now, it's a little tough to justify spending a significant amount...
Whenever the biggest story coming out of a game is Marc-Andre Fleury missing his first NHL goal by six inches, it probably means that the Penguins won. Columbus is second to last in the Metropolitan Division and their missing Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky. They are also without Marian Gaborik and Nathan Horton. To add…
Following a two year stint in Division IA, the Norwegians are back and hoping to stick full time after a promotion during the 2013 World Juniors. Highlighting the 2014 squad is forward Markus Søberg, a 2013 sixth-round pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets has 13 goals and 22 points in 19 games with Frölunda Gothenburg in Sweden, as well as potential 2014 NHL draft picks Mattias [...]
