An American Enigma? Season Review: Cam Atkinson

Late into the Blue Jackets’ season there seemed to be a divide amongst fans, management and the coaching staff. It all surrounded one player: Cam Atkinson. I titled the article claiming he was an enigma, a title normally given to Russians and various other european players. Like those other “enigmas”  you need to find what that player is good at and use him in optimal situations...

Howson interviewed by Canucks? Don’t laugh

OK fine, you can laugh a bit. But not too hard, because while Scott Howson’s time as general manager of the Columbus Blue Jackets was widely considered just that — laughable — some of his moves are looking considerably better with time. (By the way, this post stems from a report by Hockey Night in Canada’s Elliotte Friedman that Howson, currently in the Oilers’ front office...

Blue Jackets made a believer

The Penguins-Blue Jackets series is over and I'm home, mostly having caught up on my sleep and begrudgingly having traded my skates for a lawnmower. Just making sure you were still reading. I can't skate. I struggle to mow. For the last two weeks, though, skates were my thing. My first hockey assignment was a pretty darn good one: The young, hungry Blue Jackets vs. one of...

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...

Penguins' rally from 2-goal deficit, win 4-3 over Blue Jackets

Their defining moment came when nobody expected it. Five years is a long time to live off the past, though. At least they showed a resiliency not often seen since their Stanley Cup win. The Penguins seemed to call upon that past Monday night. A 4-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena staked the Penguins to a 2-1 lead in a best-of-seven Stanley Cup playoff series...

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...

Red Wings didn’t blame Atkinson ‘goal’ for loss to Columbus, but Jimmy Howard delivered a zinger

I have to admire what Niklas Kronwall and Mike Babcock had to say to MLive's Ansar Khan about the absolutely bizarre and--as it turns out--non-reviewable goal "scored" by Cam Atkinson en route to Columbus's 4-2 victory over the Red Wings on Tuesday night, complicating the East's Wild Card race significantly... “I don’t think any of us knew that was...

Red Wings-Blue Jackets quick take: another ‘cheat’ win for Columbus?

I will grant you that the Red Wings were just dreadful early, that their penalty-killing blew, that they were not picking up rebounds but instead watching the Blue Jackets chip them down the ice all game long, and that Howard--let's all say it again, as usual--was stellar but didn't get nearly enough support... But the Red Wings did rally from a 2-goal deficit, and whether...

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

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson pulled off one of the worst shootout attempts ever when he needed to score to keep his team alive. It seemed as though San Jose goalie Alex Stalock used the force or his psychic powers to cause Atkinson to inexplicably lose the puck. [SB Nation] The post Blue Jackets’ Cam Atkinson pulls off worst shootout attempt ever appeared first on Diehardsport.
