COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Columbus Blue Jackets have not always played 60 minutes of hockey in their games this season.

But whether or not they are leading or trailing in a game, they are exciting to watch and will agitate opponents with their grit and grind all game.

Case in point on Friday night, against division foe, the Philadelphia Flyers.

They trailed for the entire game but were equally matched up with the Flyers. The only difference the CBJ trailed 3-1 in the early part of the third period.

Before Friday night’s game, the CBJ had one of the worst trail-after-two periods record in the NHL at 0-20.

That pitiful record might’ve woke up the team because the players were tired of answering questions about it.

Towards the middle of the third period, the Jackets started an unbelievble turnaround that led to a 4-3 win and got a lift from an unlikely scorer.

RW Jared Boll, more known as an enforcer for the team, showed that he has other skills by tipping in a rebound at 8:38 to cut the deficit to 3-2. That goal seemed to energize the team as they skated and battled like their lives depended on it.

Cam Atkinson, made a rebound shot and the game was tied 3-3 at the 15:20 mark.

From there, Columbus held on and took the game into overtime.

The Jackets kept up the pace and pressure by staying in the Flyers’ own zone.

Artem Anisimov scored the game-winner at 2:17 of the extra period as he was free against Flyers’ goaltender Ray Emery, to knock in the rebound blast shot by teammate James Wisniewski and the crowd of 16,403 went home happy from Nationwide Arena.

The Blue Jackets tied the game 1-1 on Brandon Dubinsky’s goal at 8:09 of the second period.

That was shortlived, as the Flyers came back to go-ahead 2-1 on  a Sean Couturier’s goal at 17:47 of the same period.

Wayne Simmonds got the game’s scoring going at 10:33 of the first period.

 

 

2014-15 Blue Jackets ready for another NHL Playoff run with yet another young team

The Columbus Blue Jackets have come a long way from the days of depending on superstar Rick Nash to carry them.

The past two seasons without Nash, the team has posted winning records of 24-17-7 for 55 points in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season where Blue Jackets just missed the playoffs via a tiebreaker against the Minnesota Wild, who had more non-shootout wins.  To 43-32-7 for 93 points and the playoffs in 2013-14.

The team has relied on several players to lead them to their winning ways: G Sergei Bobrovsky, F Artem Anisimov, F Cam Atkinson, F Matt Calvert, F Brandon Dubinsky, F Nick Foligno, F Boone Jenner, F Ryan Johansen and F Mark Letestu. On defense, the leaders include Jack Johnson, Ryan Murray, Dalton Prout, David Savard, Fedor Tyutin and James Wisniewski. So the days of relying on one superstar player is done and over with.

However, on the eve of training camp last week, the team was told by Johansen and his agent that they did not like the contract offers that were extended by the Blue Jackets. The Jackets have offered Johansen more money than what other top players are getting at his position.

The Blue Jackets organization is loaded with young talent. This year’s team may see some younger players added to the roster.

The winning ways started to happen when the CBJ signed  John Davidson and Jarmo Kekalainen who both had worked for the arch-rival St. Louis Blues to run the Hockey Operations as President and GM respectively.

Both Davidson and Kekalainen talked about the upcoming season of Blue Jackets hockey.

COLUMBUS, O. — There was a time when the Columbus Blue Jackets probably never looked forward to playing the Detroit Red Wings.

Back in the early days of the franchise, the CBJ would play a good game, be in the game, be leading and somehow would lose due to bad luck, bad goaltending, bad defense or just not having a talented team to overcome one of the NHL’s all-time winningest franchises.

Cam Atkinson

But today, the Blue Jackets are a team on the rise. They’re scrappy, can play with anybody, has a very solid defenseman corps and the goaltending is on par with anybody.

On Saturday, they beat the Red Wings 3-0 in a game where they dominated from start to finish before a delighted crowd of 17,957 at Nationwide Arena. All of the Detroit fans, who always make the 250-mile trip, probably left the game thinking, the CBJ can’t be counted on for an easy win anymore.

Columbus did not play into overtime as they had the previous five games. ”It’s nice to play 60 minutes instead of 65,” Nick Foligno said with a laugh, to several reporters after the game.

The Red Wings usually have a very strong power play, but they’re 24th in the NHL at only 14.7 percent. However, on the road, their having all kinds of problems. going 0 for 36 after an 0-for-3 day yesterday.

According to a radio report after Saturday’s game, Detroit’s streak of ineptness on the road power play is the fourth-worst to start a season since 1987-88. The Minnesota Wild, who came into the NHL the same season as the Blue Jackets, in their inaugural season in 2000-2001, failed to score on their first 47 power plays. The Atlanta Thrashers were 0 for 42 in 2001-2 and the New York Rangers  in 1999-2000 were 0 for 39.

Jack Johnson

The Blue Jackets have beaten Detroit three straight games and has a 3-0-1 record this season and has earned points in every game for the first time ever in a season series.

Granted, the Blue Jackets were facing a backup goaltender in Jonas Gustavsson, but the Red Wings still have an explosive team on the ice in Justin Abdelkader, Daniel Cleary, Pavel Datsyuk, Jordin Tootoo, Henrik Zetterberg, Jonathan Ericsson, Niklas Kronwall and Johan Franzen. They can score a bunch of goals at anytime, but they can be stopped and frustrated if you control the puck and that’s exactly what Columbus did. In fact, the CBJ won 64% of the faceoffs against a team that is tough to win a draw from.

But this is a Detroit team that no longer has the services of Nicklas Lidstrom, their long-time captain and defenseman who led the team on the ice, but he retired after last season. And the difference in the team’s defense has been very noticeable as the opposition are able to penetrate deep and beat their goalies on a consistent basis.

The Red Wings could not solve Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky had who made 29 saves in his first career shutout.

The team received goals from Cam Atkinson, Jack Johnson and Foligno to garner 10 points in their last six games after getting 12 in their first 19.

Nick Foligno

The Blue Jackets are 9-12-4 with 22 points, good for 12th in the Western Conference.

COLUMBUS GAME NOTES

Giroux brought up by Jackets for goal-scoring

Alexandre Giroux had a busy Friday.

He caught a morning flight from Washington and arrived for practice at Nationwide Arena with the #2 forward line to get ready for the Dallas Stars.

The Blue Jackets need a secondary scorer and power-play help and they feel Giroux is the guy. He has been a scoring machine in the American Hockey League, but has struggled with the speed of the NHL which will not allow time and space to shoot the puck.

On Thursday, the Jackets brought Giroux up from minor-league Springfield and sent down promising youngster Cam Atkinson.

Giroux immediately scored a goal on Saturday night against the Dallas Stars in a 4-2 loss to drop the Jackets to a disappointing 0-4-1 start.
