Seems like right now Bobrovsky is playing well enough to overcome their lack of goal scoring. 

 

They're good defensively (10th in GA and 4th on the PK) they just can't score goals to save their lives (30th). 

 

If they can even get to be mediocre offensively they could be a playoff team for sure.

up 4-2 on Trashville and it honestly hasn't been that close either.  Same blueprint, the CBJ bodied up on Nashville and netted their scoring opportunities.

 

They did lose nick foligno which may cause them some issues down the road.

 

Check that, it's 4-3....looks like they let up when it got to 4-1 a few minutes ago.....


Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

It's funny as of today Columbus and the NYR are tied at 28 points.

 

Maybe getting rid of Nash was the best thing to happen to Columbus.

 

I guess the Ewing Theory applies in this case.

I don't think this is a fluke. John Davidson has actually finally changed the culture in Columbus from a team with absolutely no identity, HORRENDOUS defense and goaltending to a team that works extremely hard and plays a trap game. This worked for the Blues when they finally become good again. I don't think Columbus is a playoff team yet, but weirder things have happened. It's a shortened season so who knows. A Chicago/Columbus series (1 vs 8) would be very interesting.

5-1 Win tonight over Calgary.

 

24 saves for Bob again and Foligno scored 2.

 

Seeing is believing....I don't think they're going anywhere but up.  Maybe not this year (I do think this hot streak will end and they'll fall back a bit), but damn this might be the first time since 2009 that Columbus has had a buzz about the Blue Jackets.  They even had 14000 in the stands on a night when Ohio State was playing, that's pretty damned good for them.

Just as we're about to leave the division. I like it.

2 goals from Nick Foligno tonight. Goals from Jared Boll and Colton Gillies. Anisimov got a much needed goal. He has struggled this year. Bobrovsky made 24 saves.

Brandon Dubinsky is reportedly out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury. Hopefully he won't be out long. Doesn't sound particularly good, though.

Anyhow, Columbus continues to roll.

Even with this streak they aren't even in a playoff spot. It is still going to take a lot of this (plus help from other teams faltering with their games in hand) for them to be able to make a run at the playoffs. So far, so good, though.

they are 8-0-2 in their last 10, I'm pretty sure they have a point in their last 11 or 12 games,  and they are tied for 8th right now, if they keep up like this then they will certainly make the playoffs, and get swept by the wings :P

Looks like they're the ones winning the Nash trade right now.

Yes they are and good for them. Would be funny if they make the playoffs and actually beat someone in the first round. Not us of course.

I was just looking through the mock draft and noticed that Columbus has 3 picks in the 1st round this year.  They already have graduated prospects that are gonna be awesome like Atkinson and Calvert, and have Ryan Murray on the way.  But 3 picks in the 1st round of this years draft is gonna be huge for them.  Hope the other teams in their division have fun with them when they're finally good.  :lol:

 

http://www.mynhldraf...NHL-Mock-Draft/

 

They have the Rangers and Kings 1st rounders, and as a side note to make Penguin haters like myself happy, Calgary has their 1st round pick.


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

While I am happy for their fans, unbelievable what they've gone through I don't understand it:

 

They've traded away their top-scorer, face of the franchise basically have no real first line and playing playoff hockey? 3 first round picks is damn huge and if the Rangers truely tuned out Tortarella the Rangers pick mid be a good one also. Sure they have had nowhere to go but up but this fast is really impressive.

3-1 win over Nashville.

Gaborik made an immediate impact with a goal and an assist.

Dubinsky with two assists.

Dubinsky with two assists.

 All the while the BJ's have 3 1st round picks to build around him, Atkinson, Calvert and Murray moving forward.  They're gonna be really really good in a couple years.
