Blue Jackets Have Some Issues to Address

October 10th, 2019 A sense of relief is in the air after the Columbus Blue Jackets won their first game on Monday. Two losses in a row made for a tough start, and a third would’ve caused some early nerves. Three games aren’t enough to know what the Blue Jackets will be like for the course of a season. Yet, it...

Pittsburgh Penguins

Two games into their new season, the Columbus Blue Jackets appear to have a bit of an identity crisis. After going through a scoreless first period Saturday night in Pittsburgh, the Blue Jackets allowed the Penguins to score five goals in the second period on route to a 7-2 win. This now is 12 consecutive losses at PPG Paints Arena for the Blue Jackets (0-9-3). A Quick Recap The night didn't start out horribly though. That's what makes this game perplexing on several levels. Rookie Elvis Merzlikins made his long anticipated NHL debut. He got through the first period and looked ok. He confidently played the puck when given the chance. He made the saves he needed to.

Toronto Maple Leafs

The new season is just two games old for the Toronto Maple Leafs, but they are still trying to find their identity as a whole. Friday night in Columbus, their bottom-six took a step forward and helped the Leafs land their game-winning goal. This was the kind of play you aren't going to find on the score sheet. But it was a game-defining shift that set the Leafs up for the rest of the night. It was vitally important given the score was just 1-0 at the time. The game ended up 4-1 Toronto thanks to two Mitch Marner goals, an Auston Matthews power-play goal and a game-winning goal by Cody Ceci. We want to focus on Ceci's goal, not the goal itself, but the events that led to it. An Impact Bottom-Six If the Maple Leafs want to make a deep playoff run next spring, they need efforts like the one they got from their fourth line of Jason Spezza, Frederik Gauthier and Nic Petan. Their relentlessness in pinning the...
