Columbus Blue Jackets Win Streak Halts at 16

The Washington Capitals may have played spoilers on Thursday night as they defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets with a 5-0 victory, but Sergei Bobrovsky and Co. still have an awful lot to be proud of.

Columbus Lights Up Montreal, Montoya for 10-0 Victory

On Friday night, the Columbus Blue Jackets demolished the Montreal Canadiens by a final score of 10-0. That, in and of itself, is newsworthy. But what’s also newsworthy is that goalie Al Montoya was between the pipes for all 10 Columbus goals. Montreal headed into Columbus with a 9-0-1 record and hadn’t allowed any regulation […]

2016-2017 Season Preview: Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets walked out of the 2015-2016 season with a 34-40-8 record, good for last in the Metropolitan Division. They fell short of a playoff berth again, but there is a general feeling around this franchise that the same core that took them into the post-season in 2013-2014 can do the same again […]
