Waiver-wire acquisition has played major role in Blue Jackets run

As a player, Corey Tropp's ignition switch is stuck in the "on" position. His motor is always revving, and that's one of the reasons the Blue Jackets winger's season has gone from waiver wire castoff to impact player on a playoff contending team. He was acquired by Columbus in late November, from the Buffalo Sabres. To that point, it wasn't the best of times...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 2-1 shootout win over the Wild

One: Sergei Bobrovsky kept Columbus in the game with stellar saves all night long. His performance was eerily reminiscent of last year's stretch run. Timely saves, with many of the outstanding variety, paved the way for the team to win it in the shootout. A little puck luck with bounces and rebounds didn't hurt, either. Two: The best line for the Blue Jackets tonight was...

Three Takeaways from the Blue Jackets 3-2 loss to Carolina

One: The first period was all Blue Jackets, all the time. They dominated the Hurricanes with a very good fore-check, crisp, clean passing and entered the zone with speed. This directly led to the two goals that Derek MacKenzie and RJ Umberger scored. Two: In the 2nd, and again in the 3rd period, Carolina pushed back. Columbus was able to weather the storm in the 2nd, but not so much...

The fore-check would stay throughout the majority of the game, but the crisp, clean passing went by the wayside. They need to tighten things up if they want to keep advancing in the standings. Two: Although they put 38 shots on goal, their attempts were almost triple that. Unfortunately, they...
