The Columbus Blue Jackets season of expected improvement continues to go South.

On Thursday night, they were dominated from the second period on by the Chicago Blackhawks, 6-3. Goalie Steve Mason looked lost in goal again and everybody wonders about where is the improvement in his game.

The Jackets are in the midst of another losing streak this time consisting of three games, Toronto, Philadelphia and Chicago. In these games, the CBJ has been outscored 19-6.

Rumors have been cast around the City of Columbus lately that the Blue Jackets ownership will dump general manager Scott Howson and head coach Scott Arniel if the losing doesn’t stop this month (November).

* The Blue Jackets are now 28-29-8 against Chicago, including 15-13-5 at Nationwide Arena.

* The CBJ scored two power play goals on five attempts last night, marking the first time this season the team has scored multiple goals with the man advantage. The last time the Blue Jackets had two power play goals in a game was Feb. 27, 2011 at Nashville, a span of 35 games. Prior to Thursday night’s game, Columbus was 1-for-20 the previous five games.

* Columbus has allowed the first goal in 11 of 15 games this season.

* Left wing Rick Nash picked up an assist against Chicago, the 500th point of his NHL career. He is the first Blue Jackets player to reach that mark. In 607 career games, he has collected 263 goals, 237 assists for 500 points. He also has recorded 23-27-50 in 51 career games against the Chicago Blackhawks.
