Columbus will have the Mac show in goal for the next little while. On Wednesday, the club recalled goalie Mike McKenna from AHL Springfield to replace injured starter Sergei Bobrovsky, who suffered a lower-body ailment during last night’s 1-0 win over Tampa Bay. McKenna will serve as the backup to Curtis McElhinney, the club’s temporary starter until Bobrovsky returns. The Russian netminder will undergo an MRI at some point Wednesday, but the Columbus Dispatch reports it’s entirely possible the Jackets won’t know the extent of Bobrovsky’s injury for another few days.

Can the Columbus Blue Jackets get their season together?

I’m going to be honest; it’s hard to remain optimistic about the Columbus Blue Jackets (10-14-3). They are beginning to look like most other teams that come Ohio; ones that have the talent to succeed yet always seem to fall apart at critical moments. While their record may not seem terrible, the Blue Jackets have blown many chances that they have had to win. The coaches even...

WATCH: Blue Jackets’ Nick Foligno scores sick between-the-legs goal One good thing about hockey is that it doesn’t matter that you don’t know who the heck Nick Foligno is.  1. Foligno is pronounced “Fo-lee-no.”  2. He’s been in the NHL for seven years.  3. He’s the son of former NHLer Mike Foligno.  And 4. None of these facts matter. Next time (if there is one) that you hear Nick Foligno’s name – and don’t confuse him...

Video- Bobrovsky Leaves Game With Lower-Body Injury

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers, Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky had made 18 saves and was trending toward his second shutout of the season.

GIF: Nick Foligno scores incredible through-the-legs goal

We saw Tomas Hertl do it earlier this season, Tomas Vanek did it, Clark McArthur made an amazing through-the-legs assist a few weeks ago, Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk has even atempted it on multiple occasions. Now, the latest is coming from Nick Foligno, who did it in very similar fashion to...

Glen Miller: Bad News, Good News

So often this season a bit of good news seems to be accompanied by some bad news for the Columbus Blue Jackets. This offseason they signed prominent UFA F Nathan Horton but his shoulder surgery (which the Jackets knew all about prior to signing him) has kept him out of the lineup longer than the most positive projections predicted. Nationwide Arena was selected to host the 2015 NHL...
