Columbus Blue Jackets playing dangerous game with Ryan Johansen

For the second consecutive summer, the Columbus Blue Jackets are in a situation where they are faced with retaining a key restricted free agent. A year ago, it was Sergei Bobrovsky, who eventually agreed to a lucrative two-year bridge deal to remain with the team with which he has broken out as one of the league’s top goaltenders. This summer, they are facing the same situation...

Columbus Now Part Of The Hockey World

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, Columbus is a hockey city now and the Jackets are an organization being viewed in a completely different light around the NHL. The enthusiasm was undeniable during their recent playoff run, when fans turned Nationwide Arena into the loudest building this side of the Bell Centre for a first-round series with Pittsburgh. Remember that this...

Sergei Bobrovsky: The Most Interesting Player in Columbus

Perhaps the most interesting player on the Columbus Blue Jackets roster this past season was their starting goaltender. Sergei Bobrovsky walked into training camp as the recently-crowned Vezina Trophy winner. The trophy was a signal of Bobrovsky’s emerging ability to be one of the best goaltenders in the world, officially being awarded to the goalie who was adjudged to be the best...

Columbus Blue Jackets: Why 2013-14 beat expectations

The Columbus Blue Jackets season turned out to far more than was expected at the beginning. The team rallied together and made it to the post-season for the second time in franchise history and had a record breaking season in many ways. Sadly, their run for the Stanley Cup was cut short last night when they lost 4-3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Not only was the playing on the...

ROOT Sports’ Graphic Spells Sergei Bobrovsky’s Name Hilariously Wrong

Goaltenders in Game Six spotlight

COLUMBUS, Ohio - In last Saturday night's Game Five, goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was kept busy. Way too busy for the Columbus Blue Jackets' liking. On the flip side, if Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was doubting himself at all after two late mistakes allowed the Blue Jackets to get back into and eventually escape with Game Four, it didn't show. Fleury...

Blue Jackets with their backs against the wall

Pittsburgh, PA -- They knew going into Game Five in Pittsburgh that they would have to win two games in a row, at some point, to win the series. After not responding to the Penguins stepping up their game, they find their backs against the wall coming home to the friendly confines. This club has responded to adversity throughout the season. Now, you don't get much more adverse...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh

One: The team that takes a 3-1 lead in a game to this point in the series goes on to lose. The Blue Jackets had a 3-1 lead at 1:04 of the 3rd. Also, all three games have ended with a score of 4-3. I’m not advocating a slow start, but something has to change. Two: Boone Jenner is a full-on BEAST. He’s using his body to play a physical game that is frustrating the Penguins...

Game Recap: Blue Jackets Drop Game One

Game Recap: Blue Jackets blow 3-1 lead, lose 4-3 to Sutter and the Penguins Marc-André Fleury was one-upped by Sergei Bobrovsky. It was a great start for the Blue Jackets, rushing out of the gate quickly and scoring 6 minutes into the period. On the goal, Brandon Dubinsky made an excellent inside-outside move on Paul Martin […]

QUICK CAP: Pens win Game One 4-3

Pens got goals from their PP, and Columbus was still somehow hanging in there. But the third period was where the legs fed the wolf, and the Jackets fell off the face of the Earth. THREE STARS 3. Sergei Bobrovsky – If he makes another save here or there, the Jackets steal this one. If it wasn’t already known, Game One showed this series will only last as long as Bob does. 2...

What to watch for as Blue Jackets take on Penguins

In 2009, Columbus made their first trip to the playoffs. They expended most of their energy to get to that point, clinching that spot with just a few days to go in the regular season. They were swept in four games by a good Detroit Red Wings team, and by an aggregate score of 18-7. The fans were given merely a hint of the power and excitement of playoff hockey. They wanted more,...

3 Takeaways from the Blue Jackets' 3-1 win over Dallas

One: The Blue Jackets, on the second night of back-to-back games, came out skating hard and had the legs moving. From the drop of the puck, they were a step ahead of the Stars. They lived up to their identity and didn't look back. This is the effort that will be needed in the playoffs. Two: They had a heavy, deep forecheck working for them, and they didn't want to let Dallas...
