Blake Comeau says Blue Jackets must stick to their style to upset favored Penguins

Before Wednesday, Blue Jackets winger Blake Comeau had played 422 NHL games, none of those in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Understandably, it wasn't just the same old, same old as he prepared for game one in Pittsburgh. "It felt a little bit different," Comeau admitted. "I had a tough time napping; I was a little bit nervous. You know, this is my seventh year in the...

Blake Comeau not about to change his game after suspension

And the hits just keep on coming. Yep, it's that time year in the NHL. Points are precious, and the games are tougher to play.

What Blake Comeau got away with—cross-checking Red Wings’ Tomas Jurco in the ribs

Columbus Blue Jackets Blake Comeau was suspended for 2 games because he boarded Red Wings defenseman Brendan Smith from behind--right into the view of the rink-side cameraman--and it certainly appears that the lack of a major penalty is the reason Comeau was suspended... But the reason Red Wings fans like myself drew the ire of Blue Jackets fans (and staffers) by using words like...

Comeau starting to feel at home on the road

Call it his second chance to make a first impression. When Blake Comeau was acquired from the Calgary Flames for a fifth-round pick on the NHL trade deadline day April 3, he didnt make an immediate splash. Actually, he didnt make an immediate anything, as he had to sit in Canada until his immigration paperwork was processed and missed the Blue Jackets game in Nashville the night...
