The Aftermath: (4/10/15) vs Buffalo Sabres

The Columbus Blue Jackets won in their 81st game of the 2014-15 season, the 41st and final match of the year at Nationwide Arena. They beat the last-placed Buffalo Sabres 4-2, a score that doesn’t tell just how dominant the Jackets were. Save for a few shifts here and here, this was all Columbus, and the Jackets now build to a 12 game point streak. The final game is tomorrow at...

NHL All-Star Game: League creates fantastic weekend in Columbus

The 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend was a resounding success. Columbus, OH is still an immature, developing hockey market, but you would never have guessed it from the scene downtown over the weekend.

2013/14 Season Review: Nick Foligno

2013/14 Season Review: Nick Foligno #487238995 / gettyimages.com Nick Foligno is the embodiment of the style of play that the Columbus Blue Jackets covet. He’s a hard-working, gritty forward who plays a tough game, but has a bit of skill to back it up. He’s also been a player who seems to make almost everyone he plays with better in driving shots. Unlike my previous player...

Nick Foligno wants to be 'go to guy' for Jackets

The 2013-2014 NHL season was the second best year of Nick Foligno's career. He went 18-21-39 and was a +5 in 70 games. In four playoff games versus the Pittsburgh Penguins, he scored two goals. Does having a year like the one he just had weigh on his mind? "I think the way we play kind of fits the mold of the player that I am. I felt better as the year went on. I felt like I could...

Foligno looked forward to 'fresh start' when traded to Columbus

The end of the 2011-2012 season saw the Blue Jackets finish in 30th place. They went 29-46-7 for a measly 65 points. They then proceeded to lose out in the draft lottery for the number one draft pick. The club, at this point, seemed rudderless. A culture of mediocrity seemingly played out year after year. On July 1, 2012, Nick Foligno was traded from the Ottawa Senators to Columbus...

Foligno takes 'Battle On' to heart

The motto for the Columbus Blue Jackets, as they're in the midst of a playoff series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, is "Battle On." This seems appropriate, as the team has had to overcome adversity throughout the year. One player in particular, has epitomized this motto. This season has been a trying one for left wing Nick Foligno, both personally and professionally. The 26-year-old...

Nick Foligno says Blue Jackets are committed to playoff-style hockey every game

It's been a little harder to notice Nick Foligno lately. Not that the Blue Jackets winger hasn't been making big plays, mind you. It's just that he hasn't been on his skates when he's made those plays. In the Columbus win over Detroit Tuesday, Foligno scored that huge first-period goal to tie the Red Wings 1-1 after Detroit seemed ready to take over the game. He swept the puck into...
