Long Read

We have reached the 15-game mark for the Columbus Blue Jackets. Game 16 goes Thursday night in Glendale against the Arizona Coyotes. The game is the first of a three-game road trip that will see the Jackets go to Denver Saturday and then Montreal Tuesday before returning home. Needless to say the last five games for the Blue Jackets have not gone their way. They've lost all five with just one coming in overtime against St. Louis. Normally we would look to see if everyone is trending towards goals. Joonas Korpisalo is starting to get more comfortable. Sonny Milano is noticeable. But outside of that in terms of our watch list, the rest is ugly. So let's take a different approach this time in our checkup. They have an overall record of 5-7-3 as of this writing. The breakdown of their five-game stretches goes something like this. First five: 2-3-0.Second five: 3-0-2.Third five: 0-4-1. It's clear from the record things have gone south in a hurry. If games go a certain way...

Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets have played poorly in their last few games. This cold stretch has led them to the bottom third of the NHL standings. There are a number of factors to criticize about the team's play thus far, however one bright spot this season has been Pierre-Luc Dubois. The 21-year-old has taken his game to the next level. In my opinion, Dubois has been the Blue Jackets' best player, and it’s not close. No disrespect to Seth Jones, who is a star himself, but Dubois is driving play in an even more impressive way of late. Losing Artemi Panarin on his left side hasn’t slowed him down at all. It speaks volumes that Dubois is able to perform better with a bit less help. He has shown an elite ability to generate chances in the offensive zone no matter who is on his line. This past summer, Mitch Marner, Mikko Rantanen and others made headlines by waiting a long time to sign their new contracts. This summer, Dubois will be one of the names to watch as far as signing...

Vegas Golden Knights

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Reilly Smith scored twice, Marc-Andre Fleury had 29 saves and the Vegas Golden Knights halted a two-game skid with a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night. Former Jacket William Karlsson assisted on both of Smith's goals as the Golden Knights got back in the win column after dropping three of their last four. They lost the last two in overtime after holding two-goal leads. Boone Jenner scored, and Joonas Korpisalo had 23 saves in the Blue Jackets' fifth straight loss. Smith's first goal came with 45 seconds left in the first period. His shot from behind the goal caromed into the net off the handle of Korpisalo's stick. Columbus challenged, contending that Jonathan Marchessault was offside when he dragged the puck into the zone, but after a replay, it was ruled a good goal. Jenner got his fourth tally of the season, a top-shelf snipe from just inside the left circle, to tie the score 5:37 into the second period. Two minutes later,...

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Sean Monahan, Sam Bennett and Matthew Tkachuk scored, and David Rittich recorded the shutout as the Calgary Flames beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-0 Saturday night.

Columbus (5-6-3) outshot the Flames 43-29 and goalie Joonas Korpisalo lost his third straight start. Monahan got the Flames on the board early, beating Korpisalo with a high shot from right in front of the net at 3:44 of the first period. Elias Lindholm and Johnny Gaudreau assisted on Monahan's third goal of the season. Calgary led 2-0 after Korpisalo chased a wide shot by Derek Ryan, leaving an open net for Bennett, who buried the puck at 8:20 of the second period for his third goal of the season. Sam Bennett (Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports) Matthew Tkachuk made it 3-0 with an empty-net...
