Opportunistic Isles shut out Blue Jackets

Opportunistic Isles shut out Blue Jackets

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ No peace in the valley tonight The Columbus Blue Jackets traveled to NYC to face the New York Islanders in a match that wasn’t exactly packed with thrills. If anything, it was full of chills – Zach Werenski was injured early in the game, the Isles were their usual physical and opportunistic selves, and the offense couldn’t get on the board. Here are the details: First Period: Elvis Merzlikins was given the start after Joonas Korpisalo played the previous night against the Pens. In theory, it’s good to have the back up play against the relatively weaker...

Riley Nash returns to the lineup, while Eric Robinson sits as the healthy scratch. I don’t get sitting Robinson after how well he has played. Why not sit the underperforming Cam Atkinson or Josh Anderson? Why not sit Alexandre Texier, who has not played as well lately and played less than five minutes on Wednesday? Tristan Jarry gets the start for Pittsburgh. As I mentioned in the preview, Matt Murray has struggled this season so the backup starting may...

Once upon a time the Red Wings ruled the NHL, and if the Blue Jackets managed one win against them, it felt worthy of a parade. These days, the Red Wings bring up the rear in the Eastern Conference and the Blue Jackets, entering the night three points clear of the once mighty Wings, looked to fend off Detroit for their third straight win. A three goal third period, and two more tallies on the power play did the trick Thursday night. Joonas Korpisalo stopped 22...

Jackets play well, squander opportunities, lose in shootout

At least Elvis looked good As the Columbus Blue Jackets entered the final leg of a three game roadtrip, their lineup featured several new faces. Out were the suspended Nick Foligno, the punished Joonas Korpisalo, and the scratched Scott Harrington and Kole Sherwood. Enter Riley Nash, a healed Ryan Murray, and the recently recalled Elvis Merzlikins and Eric Robinson. With the rookie goaltender in net, the Jackets played one of their best, most-focused defensive games of the season. Alas, two third period goals surrendered cost them a regulation win, and an inept overtime power play sent the...
