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.

On The Bench: Columbus Blue Jackets Report 1/26/2013

In the latest edition of On the Bench, Columbus Wired’s Catrina Padget and Dave Seaman take a look at the Blue Jackets recent road trip and the latest game against the Chicago Blackhawks. They also talk about the early season goaltending and look ahead to the upcoming week.

Umberger’s hat trick, penalty-kill, Mason’s goaltending fuels 5-1 win over Carolina

COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets showed Friday night in their 5-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, how good they can be as a team.

They dominated the game from the outset and received excellent work between the pipes by goaltender Steve Mason, a solid penalty-kill and a hat trick from R.J. Umberger.

Coming into Friday’s matchup with one of the NHL’s worst teams in the Blue Jackets, Carolina at 30-29-15, 75 points on the season, are trying to chase down the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference from Buffalo or Washington.

But with only seven games remaining, the defeat was a costly one for the Hurricanes who are 11th in the East race, fell seven points behind the eight spot.

They should’ve known the Blue Jackets have been tough on playoff-caliber teams since Todd Richards took over for the unpopular Scott Arniel on January 9.

R.J. Umberger has had an up-and-down season, but he is one of the team’s most popular players due to the fact that he is an Ohio State hockey product and he gives his all whether the team is winning or losing and he wants to be a part of the franchise when things turn upward.

But March 23 became Umberger’s day with three goals for the second time in his Jackets career, third overall to fuel the team’s 24th win of the season.

Other heroes included Vinny Prospal with a goal and assist, Steve Mason, who has won six of his last eight starts, stopped 39 shots in goal against a good Carolina lineup featuring Eric Staal, Tuomo Ruutu, Jeff Skinner, Brandon Sutter, Jiri Tlusty and Jussi Jokinen.

Derick Brassard assisted on each of Umberger’s goals, while Nikita Nikitin and Jack Johnson garnered two assists. Johnson also earned his 100th assist of his career.

The key part of the game was the start of the third period when the Blue Jackets killed off a 5-on-3 penalty-kill leading 3-1. The Hurricanes did not score and that was the game.

Carolina goaltender Cam Ward looked lost all night as the Jackets scored five goals on 26 shots.

GAME NOTES

* Columbus has won two of its last three games after dropping the four previous games.

* The hat trick scored by R.J. Umberger was the third this season and 22nd in the franchise’s history. The now-traded and unpopular Jeff Carter had the other two.

* Columbus scored the first goal of the game for the 34th time this season. The team is 18-12-4 in those games. When leading after the first period they are 13-2-1 and 18-6-2 leading after two periods.

* The Blue Jackets are7-6-0 all-time vs. Carolina, 4-2-0 at Nationwide Arena. Overall, the Jackets have won five straight games vs. the Hurricanes.

* Goalie Steve Mason is 4-0-0 with a 1.50 goals-against average and a .952 save percentage in four games against Carolina.
