First, it’s hockey. OK, that’s a given. In all seriousness, even though Friday’s match-up stands months away from the playoffs, it carries much significance for both sides. Columbus and Toronto are trending in different directions as of late. The Blue Jackets have won seven of their last 10 and 13 of their past 16. Up in Ontario, the...

Goals, anybody? Colorado and Columbus combined for seven of them in last night’s game at the Pepsi Center. The teams registered four scores in the second period, but David Savard’s blue-line bomb with 61 seconds left secured the 4-3 win for Columbus. The high-scoring affair came despite neither team eclipsing the 30-shot mark – Colorado...

The resurgence of Rick Nash this season has been one of the hottest topics among New York Rangers fans, and hockey fans as a whole. The 30-year-old winger has certainly regained the scoring touch that made him the first overall pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. At 23 goals and 36 points through 32 games, Nash is...

Much like our gifts, the Blue Jackets need to wrap up these players. If general manager Jarmo Kekӓlӓinen is Santa Claus, or Joulupukki if you subscribe to Finnish Christmas traditions, then consider this a wish list. According to Cap Geek, 13 Blue Jacket contracts are set to expire at the end of the season with seven of those players set to...

What a very eventful year 2014 was for Ryan Johansen.  His 33 goals last season helped lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to the playoffs for only the 2nd time in franchise history.  He was also due for a new contract as a restricted free agent.  At first, it seemed academic that the contract would be done in a fairly quick amount of time.  As it...

After an awful 6-15-2 start, the Columbus Blue Jackets are in the midst of an 8-0-1 stretch that has the team right back in the thick of the playoff race.  But what makes this recent run impressive, is who they are beating.  In this stretch, the Blue Jackets have beaten Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Chicago.  In looking back at those 4...
