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.

COLUMBUS, O. — The Los Angeles Kings on paper would appear to be one of the best teams in the National Hockey League.

At times they seem unbeatable. Other times they play inconsistent hockey, can’t string together two victories.

Just when people count them out as done for a season, the Kings emerge into the playoffs and a serious Stanley Cup contender. Proof, they have won two of the last three Cups.

Tuesday night, the Blue Jackets learned that the Kings came to play and would not be denied a win.

LA’s top line of Dwight King, Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli all scored goals en route to a 4-3 win before a crowd of 14,703 at Nationwide Arena. That line shot the puck a total of 10 times.

The Blue Jackets led briefly 1-0 on a goal by Jack Skille at 1:40 of the first period.

But the Kings had an answer everytime the Jackets got close on the scoreboard.

One bright spot in the game for Columbus was LW Scott Hartnell played in his 1,000th career NHL game. Only 27 current active players and 297 overall have ever achieved this honor in the game’s history. It was only fitting that Hartnell scored a goal in the contest.

Also scoring in the game were LA’s Dustin Brown and the CBJ’s David Savard.

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.

For the past two months, the Columbus Blue Jackets have been in every game and have played playoff-style hockey which this town has been waiting for since the last playoff berth four years ago.

But on Sunday night in a key matchup versus Minnesota, they lacked energy and it cost them dearly.

The Wild used their energy to score two power-play goals in a 3-0 shutout before a dazed crowd of 15,909 at Nationwide Arena.

The loss ended the Blue Jackets’ 12-game home points streak (9-0-3), which is a franchise record.

The loss also hurt their playoff chances. The CBJ remain four points behind Detroit for the eighth playoff spot in the West and only nine games remaining in the season.

Columbus never really tested Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom with only 24 shots on goal.

THREE STARS OF THE GAME

* RYAN SUTER, WILD Defenseman, played 31 minutes and scored a goal

*  NIKLAS BACKSTROM, WILD Goaltender, encountered an easy night facing just 24 shots

* JASON POMINVILLE,WILD Right Wing, scored a goal and an assist

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.

Nick Foligno

The Blue Jackets are 9-12-4 with 22 points, good for 12th in the Western Conference.

COLUMBUS GAME NOTES
