Columbus Blue Jackets Rumors & News
Columbus Dispatch 16 hours ago
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — It took the Blue Jackets one period to get going last night, and 54 minutes to finally break through against Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne. But it’s hard to imagine a more satisfying, sweeter-tasting victory for the Blue Jackets than the 1-0 win they earned over the Predators last night at Bridgestone Arena.
• Past 10 games : 6-3-1
The Blue Jackets were a middling to poor team for more than a decade and, as such, they had a history of selling at the trade deadline. They bestowed many blessings on other NHL teams over the years.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The left side of the Blue Jackets’ defense has been gutted by injuries in just 10 days. It started when Fedor Tyutin returned from the Olympics with an ankle injury and continued on Monday at Toronto, when rookie Ryan Murray injured his knee. On Thursday, Nikita Nikitin was elbowed hard by Chicago’s Andrew Shaw and suffered a head injury. Nikitin likely won’t play tonight at the Nashville Predators, although he is listed as day-to-day.

CHICAGO — A day after trading Marian Gaborik to the Los Angeles Kings, Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards reconfigured his lines in a way that probably looks familiar.

Andrew Shaw and Jonathan Toews had two goals apiece, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-1 on Thursday night.
Jonathan Toews scored twice to extend his goal streak to five in three games, and Andrew Shaw also netted a pair as the host Chicago Blackhawks breezed to their 12th consecutive victory over the Blue Jackets.
CHICAGO -- Why the Chicago Blackhawks rolled to a 6-1 win victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday is debatable. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville’s shifting of lines might have had an impact, whether physical or psychological. The Blackhawks might have simply been the better team and would have been just fine against the Blue Jackets, whom they have defeated 12 consecutive times, if they'd kept the same lines from their previous game.

Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen acted more relieved than excited. As the NHL trade deadline came and went at 3 p.m. yesterday, the Blue Jackets tried to swing a blockbuster deal that could have given them a huge push in reaching the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Blue Jackets have traded right wing Marian Gaborik to the Los Angeles Kings for two conditional draft picks and a player, unloading a high-priced veteran goal-scorer whose run in Columbus was beset by ineffective play and injuries.

Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen has “long term” emblazoned on the Hugo Boss T-shirt he wears beneath his fabulous silk suit. President of hockey operations John Davidson, if he rescues two more dogs, will name them “Long” and “Term.”
