Game Preview: Storm Clouds Looming

A dangerous team comes to town as the Jackets look to recapture their winning form In a quirk of NHL scheduling, 3 of the 4 games Columbus plays against Carolina come within an 11 day period in January. Tonight is the second of those three games. The first of those games, in Carolina, saw Columbus have an uncharacteristically poor second 30 minutes. The Canes played a physical style of hockey that threw the Jackets off their game. Making things worse were the last minute scratches of Sergei Bobrovsky and Matt Calvert to injury. The good news is that after missing 3 games with the flu, Bob...

Quick Takes: Weakened Jackets Fall to Hurricanes 5-3

After the 16 game win streak, many fans kept saying “The team could go .500 the rest of the year and make the playoffs.” It appears the Blue Jackets may test that theory. The Blue Jackets announced that Sergei Bobrovsky would miss the contest due to illness, giving newly recalled Anton Forsberg the start, while Joonas Korpisalo would be called up from Cleveland in the wake of Curtis McElhinney being claimed off waivers by Toronto. This would have been challenging enough, but the Jackets would also lose the services of Matt Calvert, who took the morning skate and warmups, but would be...

Hockey players are tougher than old skates

If you ever doubted hockey players are among the toughest athletes, there’s always the big, bloody example of Matt Calvert. On Nov. 18, the Columbus Blue Jackets forward and 27-year-old Brandon product took a Nick Holden slapshot to the face, opening a grotesque gash that required 36...

G33: No Style Points, But The Streak Survives

As Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella stepped to the podium late Tuesday, he fired an opening salvo before the questions even started flying. “This is going to be pretty short, I’ll tell you that right now,” Tortorella said. The Blue Jackets had just won their 13th consecutive game, blowing a 3-0 lead against Boston before rescuing it with Nick Folingo's late power play goal to win 4-3 before a standing-room-only crowd of 19,005 in Nationwide Arena. But nobody was all that pleased. “That wasn’t very pretty,” left wing Matt Calvert said. “I’m sure we’re going to address some...

Bruins at Blue Jackets: Quick Takes

Here’s what happened. Here’s what happened: Columbus started quickly, jumping out to a 3-0 lead inside ten minutes. Goals from Scott Hartnell, Seth Jones, and Matt Calvert set the pace. Boston pushed back, scoring two goals in 55 seconds to draw within one after twenty minutes. Columbus appeared to fall asleep at the wheel and play lackadaisical with the lead, and it bit them. The second period, well. The Bruins tied it. Columbus hasn’t attacked rebounds, hasn’t played their game, has been schooled in the neutral zone, turned the puck over too much. Other than that, the game has...
