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.
