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 RangersĀ  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.

Wisniewski’s return; young kids Johansen, Moore help Jackets get first win

The Columbus Blue Jackets three weeks of hell, in the words of head coach Scott Arniel ended Tuesday night with a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The Jackets outplayed the veteran Wings and made them chase the puck all night which resulted in the home team getting seven power plays.

It was a night of firsts for Columbus.

James Wisniewski made his Blue Jackets debut after serving an eight-game suspension; rookie Ryan Johansen scored his first NHL goal and added an assist; rookie John Moore scored his first NHL goal and Derek MacKenzie scored his first goal of the year into an empty net.

Columbus came into the game as the only winless team in the league at 0-7-1 with 1 point, the worst start in team history.

There were 15,100 in attendance at Nationwide Arena. It was a welcome sight considering there had been several crowds this year under 10,000.

The addition of Wisniewski, a Michigan native from the Detroit area, was obvious on the defensive end. He played 27 minutes, 21 seconds and saw his first action since the preseason. The veteran free-agent signee from this past off-season was suspended for a hit to the head of Minnesota forward Cal Clutterbuck in an exhibition game on September 23.

Also getting into the scoring column was R.J. Umberger who had a goal and an assist.
