Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 3-1 win over the Bruins

One: They came out skating with pace and playing a physical game against a good team. Their transition game is much better than it has been over the last few weeks. They were decisive with puck decisions, for most of the game, and used this to move up the ice with alacrity. Two: Ryan Johansen extended his point streak to a league-leading 13 games by scoring his 17th goal of the season...

Blue Jackets backup goalie McElhinney regaining confidence

It would be easy to explain away the Blue Jackets lack of victories earlier in the season, including the dismal month of November, on the backup goaltender, as fans are wont to do. But that would belie the fact that Curtis McElhinney was playing injured. On October 18 in Ottawa, Nick Foligno slid into McElhinney, resulting in Curtis having a concussion. One week later, he had flown...

Blue Jackets make it look easy in 6-2 victory

Columbus, Ohio - There was a real worry about how the team would respond after losing 5-1 to Nashville on Monday. Couple that with four days off for the Christmas holiday and one was left to wonder which team would take the ice. That fear was assuaged at 8:11 of the first period as Scott Hartnell, in his first game back from Injured Reserve, got the Blue Jackets on the board. He...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 6-2 win over the Bruins

One: In a typical "first game back" from the holiday break, both teams were somewhat tentative. The Blue Jackets were passing with a crisper pace that was tape-to-tape, for the most part. The game seemed gain a bit of an edge as time wore on. The refs must have been being pre-emptive in keeping things in check, as they gave Dalton Prout and Milan Lucic matching roughing penalties...
