Pittsburgh Penguins Eliminate Columbus Blue Jackets

The Pittsburgh Penguins have eliminated the Columbus Blue Jackets with a 5-2 victory in Game Five of their first round series in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Do the Blue Jackets Stand a Chance Against the Penguins?

In our look at the playoff series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Columbus Blue Jackets, one detail emerged: experience was going to be a factor. Now that the Penguins are up two games to none on the Blue Jackets, that experience factor has been showing itself. Pittsburgh has outscored Columbus 7-2 so far across two […]

2017 Stanley Cup Playoff Preview: Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets had a terrific year, but they’ve drawn the assignment of facing the defending champs in the first round.

The Pittsburgh Penguins finished three […]

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. The team’s winning streak came to an end at 16, good enough to grant them the second-longest NHL winning streak […]

John Tortorella Wins 500th Game

There may have been a measure of poetic justice at work when Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella picked up his 500th career win. The victory came in overtime as his team faced off against the Vancouver Canucks, with the Jackets winning by a final score of 5-4. The win made Tortorella the first […]

The Metropolitan Division is (Mostly) Awesome Right Now

If it seems like the Metropolitan Division is dominant these days, it is. In fact, the top five teams in the division went 17-1-0 this past week. The fifth-place Washington Capitals have 37 points as of this writing, while the division-leading New York Rangers have 41 points. That’s a differential of four points, I’m told. […]
