Excited Penguins toddler, sad Blue Jackets kid may be NHL's most hardcore fans

Kick to the curb the myth that the future of America doesn't care about hockey. As the Blue Jackets and Penguins square off in a first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, two young fans may just be the ambassadors for a new generation of passionate hockey fans. The younger of the two is a 2-year-old boy so enthusiastic about the Pens that he uses a toy lawnmower as a Zamboni in...

Jack Johnson on Pens: 'They're nothing special'

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A momentary lapse by the Blue Jackets in the third period Monday night was all that it took for the Pittsburgh Penguins to score three goals and snatch the victory in Game 3. With a 2-1 series lead belonging to the Penguins, can the Blue Jackets set another franchise milestone and win their first playoff game at home Wednesday night? If you ask the guys in the room...

Key Observations Heading Into Game 4 Between the Penguins and Blue Jackets

By: Casey Johnston (@PensNationCasey) Penguins Winning Possession Battle The regular season possession woes of the Penguins have been well documented.  Whether it was due to injuries, new defensive schemes, or new personnel, the Penguins finished the season with a Corsi Close below 50%.  Their 22nd place finish was three spots below the Columbus Blue Jackets, who finished above...

Could the Columbus Blue Jackets and Cleveland Cavaliers Swap Games During the Season?

While watching the Columbus Blue Jackets in a thriller of a playoff matchup thus far, the question came to my head in regard to if the NHL could ever make its way to Cleveland. Besides it creating an instant rivalry against Columbus, Pittsburgh and Detroit, I could not come up with any reasons for a team to be in Cleveland permanently. However, I then pondered the idea of the...

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...

The Blue Jackets Let One Slip Away

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers at the Columbus Dispatch, This first-round series between the Blue Jackets and Pittsburgh Penguins has made for immensely compelling hockey. The Blue Jackets must exert their will to keep the Penguins from exerting their skill.

Penguins Update: What a Comeback

WOW. That was my initial reaction to the Penguins’ stunning 4-3 win over Columbus in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Monday night. After spotting the Blue Jackets an early two-goal lead, the Pens erupted for four goals in the final 20 minutes and change to snatch a dramatic victory from the jaws of certain defeat. Just as important, the Pens displayed remarkable...

Blue Jackets still seeking complete game against Penguins

Columbus -- "Blue Jackets hockey" is a thing that has yet to be seen for a full 60 minutes in this playoff series. Long stretches of it have been seen and it’s a beautiful game to watch. Fast, hard-working and physical is the mantra of playing their game. Tonight within the raucous and friendly confines of Nationwide Arena, they played their game for all but about...

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...

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...
