Before this season’s home opener, this is how the Pittsburgh Penguins responded to losing their grip on a three goal lead:
Last Thursday, after an offensive clinic in the first period of the...
Blake Comeau started the game. Has probably really impressed the staff.
No “It’s A Hockey Night in Pittsburgh” off the opening face-off. Might be part of Johnston’s new regime.
Pens had to kill a penalty, but they didn’t because Pavel Datsyuk was on the ice. Tatar was left wide open in the slot, and Datsyuk hit him with a pass. Tatar sniped MAF.
Hard to say much about the...
CBJ Season in Review: Blake Comeau
As discussed in my previous post, Matt Calvert was a major reason I became a Jackets fan. But another reason was because of my interest in Blake Comeau. He’s not a dynamic offensive player, isn’t the greatest defensively – he’s just kind of a “guy”. But is there more to him than a simple fourth liner? The 2013/14 season proved to me...
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.

Players who don't normally play a very physical game are having to adjust, whether it be in the battles along the wall or in the high-traffic areas near the...
Columbus Blue Jackets left wing Blake Comeau was called for boarding Brendan Smith of the Detroit Red Wings during the Jackets' 4-1 win Tuesday night in Columbus, and Comeau could face additional punishment as a result of the play.
Comeau, 28, is in his second season with the Blue Jackets and has three goals and nine assists through 46 games.
Columbus' victory over the...
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed forward Blake Comeau on injured reserve with a sprained knee sustained in Thursday's practice.
Comeau is expected to be out for four to six weeks.
The 27-year-old leads the Blue Jackets in hits with 131. He has three goals and eight assists with 21 penalty minutes in 43 games this season.
Acquired by Columbus in a trade...
