That kind of discipline has paid off lately, as Columbus is now riding a season-high four-game win streak after a 3-0 shutout over Detroit on Saturday. The Blue Jackets looked like a well-oiled machine on the ice, outworking the Red Wings for the majority of the game and winning the puck battles in the corners. It didn’t hurt that Detroit gave up six power plays to the Blue Jackets, who cashed in on one of the opportunities. Detroit went 0-3 on their own power plays. Detroit captain Henrik Zetterberg had this to say: “I think the power play is a big issue. If we get one there or get momentum it’s a different game.

The Blue Jackets Could be Heavy Sellers

With the removal of Scott Howson as the Columbus Blue Jackets General Manager (GM) and the hiring of drafting and development guru Jarmo Kekalainen to replace Howson, the philosophy of patience could have been replaced with one of a major upheaval, albeit one with Kekalainen’s stamp of youth and playing the game at a high rate of speed, both physically and mentally. One seismic...

Blue Jackets Moving In The Right Direction

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch, The process started with an incredibly complicated deal — among the team, Nationwide, the convention authority, and city, county and state officials — that took two years to assemble. Under intense pressure, Blue Jackets majority owner John P. McConnell traded power and capital to give his franchise a chance at long-range stability...

Jackets stick with the plan, and it's working

When you do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result, is that insane? Not at all, especially if youre a hockey team that believes in the system and believes in each other.

Did The Flyers Trade The Wrong Goalie?

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Steet Bull, When general manager Paul Holmgren sent backup goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to Columbus for three draft picks last June, not many eyebrows were raised. Bobrovsky had seen little time behind Ilya Bryzgalov. But with the strike-shortened season more than halfway over, Bobrovsky has emerged as the NHL’s hottest goaltender. On Monday,...

GDT - Game 25: Red Wings (12-8-4) at Blue Jackets (8-12-4) 2:00

Half way there, and DET are sitting in 4th. After the start to this season, who'd a thunk it?  That is the good news anyways.  In the crosstown traffic that is the WC, the Wings are only 4 points from 11th position. The problematic bit is that DET are the road warrior the rest of the month;  8 road games versus just 3 at home.  April is a little better, 7 road, 6 at JLA. ...

Yesterdays tilt with the BJ's was a gawd-awful mess.  Really, how does a man get abused by BJ's?  Uncle Mike obviously doesn't know either, as this is the second occurance of the sky falling:   “I thought we were bad,'' Babcock said. “Why was that? Was that mental prep? Was that the coach never got any messages across? Lack of preparation? Did we practice...

George picked a good day to deal with a computer issue with his new laptop so you have me with this recap. I am going to make like Mike Babcock during his first period timeout and say nothing. That's it, I have nothing to say about this game but on the other hand you may have a lot to talk about, so the floor is yours.
