Highlight Recap: Penguins at Blue Jackets

First Period - Not even 30 seconds in and the Pens nearly scored. David Perron fired one low that slithered past Sergei Bobrovsky and hit the post before Bob kicked it free nanoseconds before Malkin would’ve cashed in the rebound. Yikes. Look how close this was, a few inches either way and this game could’ve taken a dramatically different turn in the first minute: - Nationwide sounded LOUD. Can’t remember a time this season when it’s sounded like this. Opening night, Rimer says, but that says like four hundred years ago. - Jackets took a power play exactly three minutes...

Devils fall to Blue Jackets after Adam Henrique goal waved off

Adam Henrique and the Devils thought they had tied their game with the Blue Jackets. The referees and linesmen didn’t share that opinion. As a result, the Blue Jackets skated off with a 2-1 victory Wednesday night. Matt Calvert scored the tiebreaking goal late in the second period and Sergei Bobrovsky made 27 saves. William...

Sharks at Blue Jackets Preview: East coast sweep?

San Jose looks to close out a perfect road trip. The Sharks’ lengthy east coast road trip couldn’t be going any better. They’ve put up wins in five straight games for a season-high winning streak, and this afternoon they’ll try to make it six-for-six. Standing between the Sharks and a perfect road trip are the Columbus Blue Jackets, who topped San Jose earlier this month thanks to 41 saves by Sergei Bobrovsky. The Sharks are 2–7 in their last nine games versus Columbus, but if they can win in Buffalo, they can win anywhere. Only three teams in the league have a worse record than...

Blue Jackets | Team’s defense building on blocks

adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};In the afterglow of a 39-save shutout on Friday against the Nashville Predators, Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky made sure to spread some of the credit to the bruised and limping players around him. It’s an odd badge of courage in the NHL.

Nashville Predators 0, Columbus Blue Jackets 4: Bobrovsky Solid In Shut Out Of Preds

You probably should have just gone out with some of your old college buddies tonight. This one was a hockey game we'd all be happy to forget about as soon as possible. What a dud. The Predators gave up two early goals to the Blue Jackets and ended up losing a terrible game to the 2nd worst team in the league by a score of 4-0. Gregory Campbell, Ryan Johansen, Boone Jenner, and Scott Hartnell tallied for the Jackets and they were backed up by Sergei Bobrovsky, who was outstanding in net for probably his best performance of the season. It was the opposite of Tuesday's game against the Ducks...

Game Preview #21 - Short Memories, Bounce Back

The Jackets need to put last night behind them and get ready for a big test tonight at home. Blue Jackets vs. Predators - 7:00 PMGame Faceoff We don't know much about the lineup tonight, as the team got home around 2:00 AM and had no morning skate. We found out that David Savard's game misconduct was rescinded, and we also found out that Michael Chaput has been sent back to the AHL. I expect Sergei Bobrovsky to get both games at home this weekend. Otherwise, I'm not going to spend much time breaking this one down. Nashville is good. They score. They still have Pekka Rinne. They still play...

Game 19 Recap: Jackets Defeat Blues for Third Straight Win

Led by Brandon Saad's two goals, the Jackets were able to grind out a victory over the visiting St. Louis Blues After a successful weekend in which the Jackets earned their first victory on home ice, they looked to keep the good vibes going against the visiting St. Louis Blues last night. It was a battle between Sergei Bobrovsky and Brian Elliott in the cages, and both goaltenders were terrific. The Jackets came out flying, until the 7:36 mark when sloppy defensive zone play cost the team a goal. Ryan Murray attempted to carry the puck from behind the goal line and through the slot, where...

Blues Vs Blue Jackets Recap: Blues Left Feeling Saad

Is it cool to fire the cannon guy out of a cannon? In what was the second game of a back to back, the Blues would roll out Brian Elliott to start against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Sergei Bobrovsky would oppose the Blues and is apparently a friend of Tarasenko. (I think every Russian is a friend of Tarasenko according to John Kelly) The forward lines tonight would be the shuffled lines that we saw in St. Louis last night. (Although if they are pretty much the same lines can you really call them shuffled again?) Steen/Backes/Tarasenko, Paajarvi moves up to be with Lehtera and Jaskin,...

Highlight Recap: Blues at Blue Jackets

The Blue Jackets look for their third win in a row with a home date against Ken Hitchcock's Blues First Period - Not a ton of notable action until St. Louis found the scoreboard 7:36 into the game. The Blues worked their way to a loose puck deep in the zone and Kevin Shattenkirk slapped one past Sergei Bobrovsky. Hey, remember a few days ago when John Tortorella wanted to bench Ryan Murray? Check out No. 27 here, who Jori Lehtera bullies into losing possession right in front of his goalie for the score. Murray also accomplishes the ignominious feat of high-sticking Lehtera on the play,...

Game 17 Recap: Jackets 2, Penguins 1

No witty headline. This game was a hard-fought battle from start to finish, and the Jackets took one from the Penguins in their barn. The mood surrounding Jackets fans prior to puck drop last night was not positive, and it was made even worse by the news that Brandon Dubinsky was a last-minute scratch due to an upper-body injury. The Jackets were not fazed. They went into Pittsburgh, and fought their way to a 2-1 victory, and came within a hair of shutting the Pens out. It was a battle between Sergei Bobrovsky and Marc-Andre Fleury all night - both goaltenders were spectacular. The first...

Blue Jackets handle punchless Penguins 2-1

Considering how much the Penguins struggled to get anything by Sergei Bobrovsky and the improving Blue Jackets, it was worth a try. Bobrovsky stopped 28 shots and narrowly missed his 12th career shutout as Columbus held on for a 2-1…

Game 16 Recap - Grand Theft Canuck

The Canucks spoiled the Jackets' attempt at their first home win of the season, stealing the game with a late goal and an empty netter. The Jackets took to the ice looking for their first win at home this season, sitting with an 0-5-0 record in Nationwide Arena prior to puck drop. The Jackets started Sergei Bobrovsky in net, while the Canucks countered with Jacob Markstrom, who was making his first start of the season. The game got off to a slow, plodding start, which wasn't helped by the fact I was forced to watch the atrocious Sportsnet Pacific broadcast. I've complained about Rimer and...

From the editor's desk: Should the Arizona Coyotes buy out Mike Smith's contract?

After another rough outing, should the Arizona Coyotes consider cutting Mike Smith lose? The Arizona Coyotes know a thing or two about loyalty. Their loyalty to their starting goaltender is sure going to be tested this season. Mike Smith has hit a particularly rough patch. He has been pulled mid-game twice in his past three starts. He's allowed 32 goals this year, second most in the league to only Sergei Bobrovsky. His season save percentage is threatening to sink below .900 this year. And after he went 14-42-5 last season with a 3.16 GAA and a .904 save percentage, he has not been good for...

Blue Jackets notebook | Bobrovsky solid after shaky start; offense still struggling

adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};ANAHEIM, Calif. — Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky looks as if he has rediscovered his inner-Bob. Bobrovsky is 4-3-0 with a .918 save percentage and 2.55 goals-against average under new coach John Tortorella vs. 0-5-0 with a .835 save percentage and 5.07 goals-against average when Tortorella was hired.
