The Cannon Cast Episode 34: Getting in the win column, showing signs of improvement, but what about Sonny?

The Cannon Cast Episode 34: Getting in the win column, showing signs of improvement, but what about Sonny?

Winning more games than you lose in a week is good The Columbus Blue Jackets earned a pair of wins and have us feeling better about the start of the season two weeks in. In this episode of The Cannon Cast, we celebrate the surprising play of a couple of young guns, discuss some past (and future) coaching decisions, and, as our wont, wonder what the heck’s going on with Sonny Milano. In this episode, we also talk about: Those were some good wins, right? Are the Blue Jackets rounding into form? Is Joonas Korpisalo looking like the answer? Could—or should—Alexandre Texier at some point...

Which players are trending up or down?

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports The Blue Jackets got their first wins of the season this week A quick note before we begin: have you signed up for FanPulse yet? It takes just a minute of your time and I’d like to get as many Cannon readers signed up as possible. We’re five games into the Columbus Blue Jackets season, and I think that’s enough time to look at which players have stood out so far in good ways or bad: Stock Up: Joonas Korpisalo. The Jackets were counting on one of their young goalies to step up, and so far that has been Korpi. As expected, he has improved with more...

Game #5 QuickCap: Columbus Blue Jackets win second game of the season at Carolina Hurricanes

Photo by Gregg Forwerck/NHLI via Here’s what happened. The Columbus Blue Jackets traveled to Raleigh to take on the Carolina Hurricanes on the second night of a back to back as they sought to avoid falling into a 1-4 hole. Here’s what happened.

Game #4 Recap: Ducks edge Blue Jackets with two goals in two minutes, 2-1

Game #4 Recap: Ducks edge Blue Jackets with two goals in two minutes, 2-1

Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports A bad bounce here, a mistake there The Anaheim Ducks, fresh off a win the previous night, scored two goals in just under two minutes to squeeze past the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday at Nationwide Arena, 2-1. All three of the game’s goals came in the second period. Jakob Silfverberg and Cam Fowler scored 1:57 apart to cap off odd-man rushes before Pierre-Luc Dubois scored Columbus’s only goal with a “throw it on net and see what happens” play with 3:44 left in the period. Neither team cracked 30 shots. Joonas Korpisalo stopped 21 of Anaheim’s...

Maple Leafs fire their way past the Blue Jackets

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports Two wins from two for the boys in blue First Period [20:00] Lets get started. The Leafs kick things off on Game 2, with Frederik Andersen in net. On the other end, they have to get past Joonas Korpisalo. Nic Petan, Jason Spezza, and Justin Holl draw in for Nick Shore, Dmytro Timashov, and Martin Marincin. [18:23] Strong first couple shifts for the Blue Jackets, who look energised by a fairly raucous crowd. So far, the Leafs are playing in their defensive zone, though the Jackets haven’t created any great opportunities in these first few shifts...
