Cam Atkinson says Blue Jackets can learn from disappointing Game 3 loss

For the Columbus Blue Jackets, the team's youth and relative lack of playoff experience has been well documented. A case in point: Monday night's game at Nationwide Arena was the 55th playoff Game 3 for the Pittsburgh Penguins. For the Blue Jackets, it was their third. As a team, though, Columbus has certainly not looked overwhelmed by the playoff spotlight. Every one of...

Cam Atkinson elevates his play after sitting out three games in March

Message received, lesson learned. Columbus Blue Jackets winger Cam Atkinson hadn't missed a game all year. And it wasn't as if he hadn't been producing. After all, the former Boston College star had scored 18 goals through early March. But something was apparently missing from his game, at least in the eyes of head coach Todd Richards. And just like that, he was a healthy...

Kerry Fraser On The Cam Atkinson Goal

from Kerry Fraser of TSN, Some will say that the contact exerted by Smith was minimal and insufficient to knock the net off the moorings without some responsibility placed on Atkinson. The replay shows that Atkinson's momentum and forward progress was altered significantly and he accelerated from his initial stop inside the top of the crease after the contact by Smith was...

Video: Controversial Cam Atkinson Goal Costs Detroit Key Points in Columbus

If the Detroit Red Wings miss the playoffs, they certainly will not look back fondly on what was at best a highly controversial call — and at worst a ridiculous decision from the refs and the Toronto replay room — in a 4-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Wings and Jackets were tied 2-2 when Columbus set off on a 2-on-1 break. After Jimmy Howard made the initial save, the...

WATCH: Cam Atkinson pulls off worst shootout attempt ever

Blue Jackets winger Atkinson embraces time to rejuvenate, heal

At the Columbus Blue Jackets late-morning practice Tuesday, it was everyone on board, except for one injured guy (Fedor Tyutin), who was not able to skate at all, and a rehabbing guy (Jared Boll), who hit the ice a little later than all his teammates.
