The Blue Jackets have a 10-game point streak after tonight. Once left for dead, the Jackets are 6-0-4 in that span and -- Holy Bobrovsky! -- only two points out of the Stanley Cup playoffs in the Western Conference as this is being typed.
Bobrovsky may not be the only reason, but he's at the top of the list. He may be the first four or five names.
In his last eight games, including one relief outing, he's stopped 239 of 245 shots, a .976 save percentage that's almost hard to fathom. After going 98 games into his career with out a shutout, he now has two shutties in his last five outings. The Blue Jackets have scored two goals in their last three games ... and earned four points in the standings.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Sergei Bobrovsky made 39 saves in regulation and overtime, then two more in the shootout to finish with his second career shutout -- both coming in the last week -- to lift surging Columbus to a 1-0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night, extending the Blue Jackets' franchise record point streak to 10 games.

Youll forgive Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Steve Mason if hes feeling a little like Vladimir or Estragon these days.
No, Mason isnt waiting for Godot, but he is waiting for a chance to get back in the Blue Jackets net in the near future.
The way Sergei Bobrovsky has played this month, though, you can understand why Mason may feel a little like the aforementioned characters from...
Are the Columbus Blue Jackets for real?
Lost in the Chicago Blackhawks’ incredible, record-setting 21-0-3 start to their season was the recent surge of the Columbus Blue Jackets who have reeled off five consecutive victories as well as are riding a nine-game consecutive point streak (5-0-4) to improve to 10-12-6, thus escaping the National Hockey League’s (NHL’s) basement which...

The Columbus Blue Jackets continued on their hot streak thanks to the man they call Bob.

Not so long ago, the Columbus Blue Jackets had the worst record in the NHL, just as they did last season.
Then goalie Sergei Bobrovsky began blocking every shot that came close to him and the Blue Jackets started pushing back against teams that had been dominating them.
Now they're on a franchise-record nine-game points streak and shockingly find themselves within range of...
Whatâs left to say about Sergei Bobrovsky that I havenât already? Last night Bob completely shut the Phoenix Coyotes out, outdueling Mike Smith in the process and essentially extending the Jackets franchise-record points streak to 10 games. Bobrovsky stopped 39 shots in regulation and OT plus both of Phoenixâs attempts in the shootout to lead the Jackets to a 1 â...

This sets up a strangely familiar and very important match-up with Central Division foe Columbus on Tuesday night at Nationwide Arena.
Most won’t (and don’t...
