Columbus Blue Jackets: Year in review

The Columbus Blue Jackets cannot be held to that same standard for evaluation this year in what was one of their strangest seasons yet. The Blue Jackets entered the season as one of the league’s brightest teams bound to have a breakout season after a playoff push the year...

Columbus Blue Jackets: Why 2013-14 beat expectations

The Columbus Blue Jackets season turned out to far more than was expected at the beginning.

Three takeaways from Blue Jackets 4-1 win over Red Wings

One: Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky kept Columbus in the game in a 1st period filled with too many turnovers, some poor puck decisions and penalties. Granted, the team was on an emotional rollercoaster from the night before in Dallas. Bobrovsky came up big, keeping them in the game and giving the rest of the team time to get their emotions in check. Two: This was one of the more physical...

Bobrovsky, Blue Jackets try for franchise record-winning streaks

Even though it was the Philadelphia Flyers who opted to deal Sergei Bobrovsky, they may be remembering him as the one who got away.
