Blackhawks escape Jackets in shootout, 4-3

Columbus Blue Jackets head coach Scott Arniel told the media during the post-game press conference , when asked about his team playing 18 games past regulation into overtime or a shootout, what does that say about his team, how close are they to the playoffs or how far they are away. His answer was “we’re getting closer, we can work on being able to win those games by working on the skills necessary to do so.”

After being down 2-0 in the first six minutes of game, the Jackets, playing without Rick Nash, Grant Clitsome, Steve Mason, rallied back to challenge the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks tooth-and-nail.

They lost 4-3 in the shootout after Viktor Stalberg scored the only goal in the third round.

Columbus had several stars in Maksim Mayorov, Derick Brassard and Sammy Pahlsson scored goals and defenseman Anton Stralman set a career-high with three assists. Mathieu Garon, starting in place of Mason, had 26 saves.

The Atlanta Thrashers of the NHL have signed All-Star defenseman Dustin Byfuglien to a five-year, $26 million contract extension.

The 25-year-old Byfuglien was acquired in a startling trade this past offseason after emerging as a key player in the Chicago Blackhawks’ run to the Stanley Cup in 2009-2010.

He leads Atlanta with 43 points and tops all NHL defenseman with 17 goals.

Blue Jackets shake off bad loss to Calgary; rally stuns Blackhawks (Saturday)

If the Blue Jackets keep following up bad losses with a big win over teams people say they can’t beat, its going to be a long, long season.

On Friday, they had a very bad loss to Calgary, but rallies from two goals down to beat the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center in Chicago.

The 3-2 win stunned the 20,265 in attendance.

R.J. Umberger, Derick Brassard and Antione Vermette scored the Columbus goals while Marc Methot collected two saves and goaltender Steve Mason stopped 30 shots.

Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash had a 20-minute team meeting and said it was a look-at-yourself-in-the-mirror session.

The key point in the game came late in the second period with the Blackhawks up 2-0 and looking like they were cruising to another win over Columbus.

With 35.7 seconds left, Brassard picked up the puck after Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford had blocked aside a shot by Jakub Voracek. Brassard knocked in the rebound for his first goal of the season.

On the faceoff after the goal, Columbus’ Fedor Tyutin was pasted face-first into the boards by the Blue Jackets bench by Chicago’s Troy Brouwer. That vicious check sent Tyutin to the ice, grabbing his neck in pain. Brouwer was given a five-minute major and in that time frame, the Blue Jackets grabbed the momentum with the long power play which carried over into the third period.

The third period had barely begun, 1:33 to be exact, Tyutin put a shot on goal that glanced off of Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson before R.J. Umberger knocked the rebound past Crawford and just like that, it was 2-2.

At the 6:29 mark, Methot shot a puck inside the blue line and shot a slap shot that Vermette redirected past a stunned Crawford and that was your game-winner.

The Blue Jackets had a nice third period putting 20 shots on goal and finished the night with a season-high 40.

Surprisingly, Columbus is 3-0 on the road and 4-3 overall.

Blue Jackets beat Anaheim 3-1 before smallest crowd ever at Nationwide Arena


COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Columbus Blue Jackets had a very poor showing on opening night last Friday night against the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks and lost.

That performance may have cost them some fans for awhile as some probably have a wait-and-see attitude.

Rick Nash scored two goals (file photo)

The smallest crowd ever at Nationwide Arena, 9,802, saw the Blue Jackets beat a team that they sometimes have trouble with, the Anaheim Ducks, 3-1.

Captain Rick Nash scored two goals and goalie Steve Mason stopped 31 shots as Columbus won their second game in a row to go to 3-2-0 in the young season.

This is the 10th season in the Blue Jackets history and they want it to be special. But in order for it to be special, they’ll have to play like they have the past two games, solid hockey with solid defense.

The Blue Jackets played solid defense killing off four straight minor penalties in the second period. Anaheim is always good on the power-play. They came into Wednesday night’s game 4th in the NHL on the power play.

The Anaheim Ducks got their four-game road trip off on the wrong foot with the loss.

Right winger Teemu Selanne scored Anaheim’s only goal, the 609th in his career; which is good for 16th place on the all-time list passing Dino Ciccarelli.

On a sad note, the Blue Jackets lost one of their alternate captains, Ethan Moreau who had been playing very well. He broke his hand in the second period when he was hit with a shot.

The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks have given head coach Joel Quenneville, a contract extension.

The extension was announced by the team through a news release mid-morning on Thursday.

During the 2009-2010 season, Quenneville led the team to its first Stanley Cup championship since 1961 and became just the 14th coach to win 500 games. He had coached in St. Louis and Colorado before taking the Chicago job when Denis Savard was fired four games into the 2008-2009 season.
