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.

 

 

Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky out indefinitely with groin injury

For those Columbus Blue Jackets fans expecting to see goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky in the lineup after the NHL All-Star break ends, get those thoughts out of your hold because reality says his injury healing time will be lengthy.

The 26-year-old Russian, a fan-favorite, suffered an injury to the right side of his groin in Wednesday night’s lackluster 4-0 loss at Winnepeg.

CBJ general manager Jarmo Kekalainen says that the injury will require Bobrovsky to be on the shelf for awhile.

Bobrovsky, who always gives the Blue Jackets a chance to win when he is in goal, was scheduled to play in the 2015 NHL All-Star Game, but his injury derailed those plans.

Bobrovsky with the Philadelphia Flyers and Blue Jackets has a career record of 95-54-21 in 179 games.

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.

As expected, Pittsburgh Penguins fire Dan Bylsma

Dan Bylsma is a good NHL coach. He’s a Stanley Cup winning coach with 252 career wins.

But in the end, those facts did not allow him to keep his job with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

It was rumored by several members of the Pittsburgh media during the recent playoff series with the Columbus Blue Jackets that Bylsma could or would lose his job. Management did not like the fact that the Blue Jackets caused all kind of havoc to make the Penguins scuffle to win the series in six games. The the loss to the Rangers in the next series after having a commanding lead left a bad taste in the mouth.

The 252 games won with the Penguins is a franchise record.

But the fact that he could not win another Stanley Cup with players like Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, James Neal and Brooks Orpik was unacceptable to management.

Since winning the Stanley Cup in 2009, Pittsburgh lost series to lower-seeded teams and ended up with 4-5 playoff series record.

The past few months have been difficult for the 43-year-old Bylsma. He coached Team USA in the Sochi Olympics back in February would could not win a medal.
