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.

Blue Jackets beat Toronto, 2-1 as Bobrovsky stars in goal

Everybody said that it would be better if the Columbus Blue Jackets played in the Eastern Conference.

The CBJ seems to matchup better with those teams and usually had good overall records against most of the teams.

Well, the Jackets have proven everybody right.

After beating Toronto last night, 2-1 the Blue Jackets have an overall record of 31-25-5 with 67 points. They sit 5th in the tough Metropolitan Conference and 10th in the Eastern Conference. They are just 1 point behind the Washington Capitals and Detroit Red Wings for the 8th and final playoff spot.

Columbus, who won the season’s series against Toronto, dominated the final two periods Monday night to win the game before a disappointed crowd of 19,577 at the Air Canada Centre.

The goal scorers were Artem Anisimov and Dalton Prout. Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky almost captured his seventh career shutout but did stop 28 shots.

The Maple Leafs scored at the 15:45 mark of the 3rd period on Mason Raymond’s 17th goal of the season.

The CBJ return home tonight to play the Dallas Stars of the Western Conference at 7 pm.

COLUMBUS, O. – The Columbus Blue Jackets matched the physical style of the Boston Bruins. But Boston showed how a championship caliber team can separate itself in a close game and outplayed Columbus in the third period to win 3-1 Saturday afternoon.

With the loss, the Blue Jackets, new to the NHL’s Eastern Conference, are 0-2 at home. Both of their wins have come on the road.

The game-winning goal was scored by Loui Eriksson, his first with the Bruins.

Eriksson, acquired last summer in the big trade that sent Tyler Seguin to Dallas, scored 150 goals for the Stars. He started the season scoreless in three games for the Bruins.

Starring for the Blue Jackets were Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky and Defenseman Jack Johnson. Johnson scored on a first-period power play.

Bobrovsky, last season’s Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL’s top goalie, stopped 33 shots.

BOSTON GAME NOTES:

* Claude Julien coached in his 700th NHL game (378-233-10-79).

* Both teams will face Detroit in their next game. The Bruins will host the Red Wings on Monday, and the Blue Jackets will play at Joe Louis Arena on Tuesday.

* The meeting was the first of three between the teams this season – the only one in Columbus.

* Boston’s Johnny Boychuk left after blocking a shot in the third period, but he returned.

COLUMBUS GAME NOTES:

* The Blue Jackets recalled C Ryan Craig from the AHL’s Springfield Falcons  before the game but he was a healthy scratch.

* Columbus F Nick Foligno played in his 400th NHL game.

* The Blue Jackets were without LW Matt Calvert (lower body) and lost LW Blake Comeau (lower body) in the second period.

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.
