So the Blue Jackets won a playoff game…

"For serious," Columbus defeated Pittsburgh 4-3 in double overtime, tying the teams' first-round series at one--and the Blue Jackets rallied from a 3-1 deficit en route to their first playoff win: Matt Calvert had 2 goals, David Savard had 2 assists, as Don Cherry pointed out, Brandon Dubinsky had 9 shots and 8 hits, and both goaltenders were stellar--Marc...

Don Cherry dekes, dangles and sprints past spears on Coach’s Corner

The CBC's Don Cherry had a very selective memory on Saturday evening. He lamented Brandon Dubinsky's ability to attack Sidney Crosby at will in Game 1 of the Penguins-Blue Jackets series, he mocked Duncan Keith for jabbing at the Blues' stars--suggesting that Keith "got Seabrook pumped up" (before sidestepping that topic)--he reviewed the Blues' game-winning...

Blue Jackets-Penguins Game 2 pregame notebook

I've Got You Under My Skin Brandon Dubinsky has been given the task of bottling up one of the best players in the NHL for a second game in a row. Containing the Penguins Sidney Crosby is never an easy job. His skill is evident on almost every shift that he takes, whether that's scoring or creating time and space for one of his teammates. Dubinsky seems to relish the task...

Stanley Cup Playoffs “Ball Hockey”

So far there have been plenty of great games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. We’ve seen two-goal deficits overcome, triple overtime, more over time, the LA Kings go down by five goals midway thru the second period to make a game of it, the Boston Bruins get shut out, Pavel Datsyuk drop jaws, and we’ve seen a lot of crotch shots. A lot of crotch shots. Blue Jacket’s forward Brandon...

Blue Jackets look to even things up with Pittsburgh in Game 2

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Sidney Crosby is used to the attention. It comes with the territory when you're the best hockey player in the world. Still, the Pittsburgh Penguins star knows the spotlight becomes more acute in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Shaded by Columbus forward Brandon Dubinsky for much of his 19 minutes of ice time in Pittsburgh's 4-3 victory in Game 1, Crosby finished...

Columbus falls 4-3 to Pittsburgh in Game 1

Columbus fought hard to keep up to the Pittsburgh Penguins but they didn't fight hard enough to take the lead in the series.  The starting goalies were Sergei Bobrovsky and Marc-Andre Fleury. Even though some people may have been skeptic as to which Fleury they'd be seeing lastnight, he did a good job protecting his net.  Columbus put up a strong fight, maybe it'...

Blue Jackets GM likes ‘relaxed-intense’ effort from Game 1

If the Columbus Blue Jackets were supposed to go into the playoffs and be scared of the Pittsburgh Penguins, they did a bad job of showing that. The Jackets hung tough in Game 1 and even held a 3-1 lead on the Penguins at one point before ultimately falling 4-3. Columbus GM Jarmo Kekalainen told Kevin Allen of USA Today he was happy with how the team came out in their first playoff...

Things that will be annoying about the Blue Jackets/Penguins series

On a scale of 1-10, the level of hatred/annoyance for Columbus is about a 3. There really is no history here. We’re sure that will change, though, with the help of the following things… Brandon Dubinsky’s face.  Rich had some other good reasons why Dubinsky is the worst in his breakdown. Jody Shelly.

so many forbidden feelings: series preview: Pens vs Blue Jackets

This is our sum of all fears as Penguins fans who fell in love with the Blue Jackets in their halcyon days, when they made the playoffs for the first time in franchise history, captained by Rick Nash and (wait for it) Steve Mason in his Calder year.  Sounds like a ******* fever dream these days but according to the Internet this did, in fact, actually happen.  This is the second...

Playoff berth clinched but no letting up with 2 games to go

There is no doctor than can cure this illness. The only prescription is to win. And for only the second time in franchise history, playoff fever has taken hold of Columbus.

After what was perhaps the biggest game of the season for the Blue Jackets, they only had the plane ride back to Port Columbus to savor it. But, what a huge victory it was in the City of Brotherly Love. The Blue Jackets were 0-5-1 all-time in Philadelphia before last night's game, the only NHL city in which they had not won a game. That was crossed off the "to-do" list...

Second place in the Metro, the Blue Jackets still not satisfied

Three nights after their game was postponed in Dallas, the Blue Jackets moved into second place in the Metro division. Although tied with the New York Rangers on points (74), they occupy the spot based on having a game in hand. That makeup game just grew in importance, as if it wasn't important enough already. Hard-charging Columbus, 17-7-2 in 2014, kept their emotions in-check...
