Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky proved again this week that he is not, in fact, human. Steven Stamkos continued to starch the opposition with a tidy two-goal, two-assist game against the Stars. Mikko Rantanen also had a four-point night against the Capitals, the same game that Gabe Landeskog picked up his first ever hatty.
Sergei Bobrovsky made his typical batch of highlight-reel saves to help the Columbus Jackets shut out the potent New York Rangers. Bobrovsky made 36 saves for his 21st career shutout and Zach Werenski and Artemi Panarin scored in the Blue Jackets' 2-0 victory over New York on Friday night. New York ran into a hot […]
Sergei Bobrovsky made 36 saves for his 21st career shutout and Zach Werenski and Artemi Panarin scored in the Columbus Blue Jackets' 2-0 victory over the New York Rangers on Friday night. New York ran into a hot goalie in Bobrovsky, the reigning Vezina Trophy winner who notched his second shutout of the season in […]
–Speaking of last night’s action, Sportsnet looks at three things we learned in the NHL on Wednesday night. –A homeless man in Winnipeg wrote a letter to the Jets in an attempt to get help for his mental illness. —Lukas Sedlak isn’t a popular name in NHL circles, but the Blue Jackets have missed him […]
It sounds like the Columbus Blue Jackets rewarded him for that hard work on Thursday. The Athletic’s Aaron Portzline reports (sub required) that the Blue Jackets signed Atkinson to a seven-year, $40.25 million extension, which translates to a $5.75M cap hit starting in 2018-19. Portzline explains that Atkinson sacrificed some short-term cash for the security […]
Where would the Blue Jackets be without Sergei Bobrovsky? As James O’Brien pointed out in yesterday’s edition of “The Buzzer,” Bobrovsky was outstanding in a 2-1 overtime win in Montreal. “It’s the key of winning in the national hockey league,” Jackets head coach John Tortorella said after the win over the Canadiens.
Two full seasons in the American Hockey League, after a taste of NHL life, would give some players a mentality that a regular spot in The Show may never come again. The New Jersey Devils forward wasn’t wondering when he’d get another NHL shot after 66 games over two seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins and […]
Sergei Bobrovsky made one big save without his stick, then turned away Montreal captain Max Pacioretty three times in a row. As far as Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella is concerned, that's why Columbus got two points on Tuesday night. Bobrovsky made 28 saves, Zach Werenski scored 1:09 into overtime and the Blue Jackets beat […]
The last thing Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson expected as their shootout with the Detroit Red Wings dragged on was that he'd hear his name called. Johnson scored in the ninth round of the shootout to give the Blue Jackets a 2-1 victory over the Red Wings on Saturday night. Columbus stopped a four-game […]
At the start of the 2016-17 season expectations for the Columbus Blue Jackets were, to say the least, low. Add Alexander Wennberg to that list and that quintet has combined for only 11 goals (on just 6.3 percent shooting).
Classic John Tortorella quotes have been lacking lately. The Columbus Blue Jackets are off to a good start this year, so there hasn’t been much for Tortorella to complain about…until now. The Jackets had 2-0 and 3-2 leads against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden last night, but they ended up dropping a 5-3 decision.
Steven Stamkos made the most of his second chance after taking a penalty in overtime. Stamkos had a power-play goal in regulation and the lone goal during the shootout, helping the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-4 on Saturday night. Stamkos was sent off for tripping 1:05 into overtime, and the Lightning […]
