The Blue Jackets snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues last night. RJ Umberger had a hat trick and added an assist for good measure. Steve Mason turned away 27 of 29 shots to record his first win in five starts. However, the most significant story from last [...]December 1st, 2009 | Bart Logan | 0 comments | Continued
Even though this is only the pre-season, an undercurrent of grumbling was making its way through the Columbus blogs, Tweets and message boards after a 0 – 2 – 1 start. Sure, all three were road games, and they all featured unique combinations of the 70 players invited to camp, but signs of veteran leadership [...]September 22nd, 2009 | Jeff Little | 1 comment | Continued

In what was likely one of the most improbable victories of the 80 games played thus far, the Columbus Blue Jackets achieved the goal that had been in existence since Robert Kron won the first-ever faceoff for the Blue Jackets (over Alexei Zhamnov of the Blackhawks) in October 2000 — a seat in the Stanley [...]April 9th, 2009 | Jeff Little | 1 comment | Continued
When Chicago’s first shot on net hit the bar, bounced up, landed on Mason’s back and into the goal, you had the sense that this might be a rather bizarre game. Consider the following: The CBJ’s first goal comes on a redirection by Umberger, with his back to the net, after Voracek cuts off Huet’s [...]March 19th, 2009 | Jeff Little | 2 comments | Continued
