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.

On Sunday night against the Minnesota Wild, a 3-0 loss, the Columbus Blue Jackets were scrambling all over the ice without any speed or energy and their NHL playoff hopes looked very dim.

But on Tuesday night, they regained their step and energy and routed for the second time this season, the San Jose Sharks, 4-0. The crowd of 17,771 at Nationwide Arena did not know what to expect after Sunday’s debacle, but they saw the CBJ win convincingly.

Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky turned the magic again and stopped all 30 shots, preserving his fourth shutout.

The goal scorers included James Wisniewski, Ryan Johansen, Matt Calvert and Marian Gaborik, providing Columbus to move closer to eighth-place Detroit in the Western Conference by two points.

The Jackets have played San Jose twice in Columbus this season and has won two games by an aggregate score of 10-2 (6-2, 4-0).

THREE STARS OF THE GAME

* Sergei Bobrovsky, Goalie, CBJ: Showed why he is up for the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender.

* Marian Gaborik, LW, CBJ: The team’s new Rick Nash scored a goal and an assist.

* Matt Calvert, LW, CBJ: Set the game’s tone with the first goal of the game using his speed.

The Blues simply have the Blue Jackets number

COLUMBUS, O. — The theme of the Columbus Blue Jackets thus far this season is S-L-O-W  S-T-A-R-T-S and head coach Todd Richards blasted the team earlier in the week in a loss at Minnesota.

So in Thursday’s home game against Central Division rival St. Louis, you’d expect a great game from the team against a hated rival?

The team did the opposite, again!

After playing well for the first three shifts of the game, the Blue Jackets found themselves trailing again 1-0 at the 2:19 mark as Blues defenseman Barret Jackman used screens by his teammates to float a puck past goalie Sergei Bobrovsky from the blueline.

St. Louis was not done yet.

Center Patrik Berglund scored at 10:23 on a power-play goal for a 2-0 advantage and Bobrovsky’s night was done when rookie right winger Vladimir Tarasenko scored a goal while falling backwards after running into CBJ defenseman James Wisniewski. An upset Richards had seen enough, as he put it in the postgame, “Sergei has to get better and I wanted to shock the team by switching goaltenders.”

Entering the game was Steve Mason, who the fans are lukewarm with due to his past failures, but on this night, he was a hero playing solid and confident stopping all 13 shots by the Blues.

The fourth goal by the Blues was scored by right winger David Backes, an empty-netter with 21 seconds to go.

Derick Brassard scored the Blue Jackets only goal

CBJ center Derick Brassard scored the lone CBJ goal on a power-play at 16;51 of the second period to make the score 3-1. The team could not get anything else past goalie Brian Elliott who always seems to beat Columbus as a backup goaltender.

The game had a common thread, the Blue Jackets lost to the Blues again, going 8-2 in the last 10, 5-2-0 at Nationwide Arena, 5-2-0 in the past 7 in Columbus and overall 31-25-13.

The game had several fights which are common in division games with several players getting game misconducts, Jared Boll of Columbus and Ryan Reaves of St. Louis.

Barret Jackman, one of the Blues' leaders got the team off to a good start on Thursday night

The crowd of 11,155 fans went left the arena unhappy again with the Blue Jackets dropping another home game.

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM STARS OF THE GAME:

*Barret Jackman, D, Blues: Got his team off to a good start in a road contest early.

*Brian Elliott, G, Blues: Survived on 25 shots allowing only one goal, but the CBJ kept him undersieged.

*Steve Mason, G, Blue Jackets: Looked quick in goal and confident. The only real bright spot from the game for the home team.

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Usually when the Columbus Blue Jackets have to depend on a play behind reversed by the NHL’s video replay officials in Toronto, its usually bad news. But on Tuesday night, they got the call that all 12,245 fans in Nationwide Arena thought when the play occured, NO GOAL!

It was the final 1.8 seconds of the game and the St. Louis Blues were trying to tie the game up at 2-2.

Blue left winger David Perron scored on the play when he fell down and lost his stick and pushed the puck past CBJ goalie Steve Mason who he was laying on top of and the red lamp behind the goal was lit and the official gave the goal sign.

But the video replay showed that it was not a goal and the Blue Jackets, who have been playing well this month, beat the team they have trouble with, St. Louis, 2-1.
