Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 2-1 loss to Nashville

One: On the second night of back-to-back games, they could have thrown in the towel at an early stage coming on the heels of the 5-0 loss to Vancouver. Instead, they opened the game with good speed, physical play and energy. Their passing was better and they were keeping pace with the Predators through most of the game. Ladies and gentlemen, what you saw tonight was pride. Two: Goaltender...

Predators 2, Blue Jackets 1

Notes: Props to Columbus goalie Curtis McElhinney, who stopped 40 of 42 shots and bailed the Blue Jackets out on several occasions. The Preds controlled the majority of the game, firing off 20 shots on goal in the first period alone. Columbus was able to sink their lone goal seconds after the end of a 5-on-3 as Taylor Beck was returning to the ice, but the Preds were able to wrangle...

Blue Jackets taking positives into Philadelphia

Many times after a loss, players and coaches will say that they can take this positive aspect or that positive play from the game. This becomes especially true in the midst of a losing streak, as everyone seemingly begins grasping at anything that might be looked at in a positive light. "Spinning" a loss becomes de rigueur for a team. Despite the 4-2 loss on Tuesday in Washington...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs

One: They had trouble clearing their own zone and it took eight and a half minutes to register their first shot on Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier. This is not coming out and setting the tone of the game. Toronto dictated the pace of the game. Two: Curtis McElhinney has shown very little rebound control in the last two games.

The other hails from London, in Southwestern Ontario. They have vastly different languages, for sure. "Nyet" versus "no" and "da" versus "yes" mean the same thing, but sound so separate.
