Jackets stunning run earns respect for Columbus

, , Leave a comment

But at the end of the day, it’s always been about one thing for this club: “Our goal is not just to make the playoffs; it’s to win the Stanley Cup.. And I don’t think there’s a lot of teams that would like to play the Blue Jackets in the playoffs right now.” But Roenick, Wyshynski and Pagnotta are in agreement: It would take a miracle from the hockey Gods to vault the Blue Jackets into the playoffs.. And while Wyshynski firmly believes Columbus can pull off wins in its final two games against the Dallas Stars Thursday and the Nashville Predators Saturday, for the CBJ to make the cut, Detroit would have to lose.. And that, according to Wyshynski, is an unlikely scenario.. “I believe this Columbus team will hold up their end of the bargain,” said Wyshynski.. “There’s something real special going on.. You hope they make it because it’d be such an amazing story.. But I think the odds are that Detroit will take advantage of the games in hand.” Playoffs or not, the Blue Jackets have made an impression across the league.. The next step for the club is to keep winning: “If you want to create a winning culture, it has to be constant,” said Wisniewski.. “You can’t take a step back and miss playoffs. source: http://www.foxsportsohio.com/nhl/columbus-blue-jackets/story/Jackets-stunning-run-earns-respect-for-c?blockID=895551

Blue Jackets-Stars Preview

We’re proving people wrong.. This team believes a lot and it just feels like our destiny that we’re to make the playoffs.. We want to make it more than anything.” The Stars (22-20-4) do too, but with four losses in five games since winning a season-best five in a row, they’re on the verge of missing the postseason for the fifth consecutive season.. They were tied for fifth in the West after that last matchup with Columbus but are down to 10th with two games left, including Saturday against the Red Wings.. “We have to get two more wins,” coach Glen Gulutzan said after Dallas ended an 0-2-1 trip with Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to the Sharks.. Gulutzan’s team could be officially eliminated as early as Thursday, and that’s guaranteed to happen without a victory.. With their playoff fate out of their control, the Stars can only focus on winning four straight at home for the first time since the start of 2011-12.. Columbus, which has won six of eight on the road, will likely put Sergei Bobrovsky in net for the 12th straight game.. He’s 16-5-3 with a 1.65 goals-against average since the February loss to Dallas.. “Your goalie on any given night has to be your best player and for sure he’s been our best player,” forward Cam Atkinson said of Bobrovsky, who made 32 saves Sunday and had 24 in a 2-1 win over the Stars on Jan. source: http://espn.go.com/dallas/nhl/preview?gameId=400443176

Blake Comeau – #14 – Left Wing – 6’1″ – 207lbs Tue.. Apr 16, 2013 | RotoWire News: Comeau left the press box and skated on the fourth line Monday, scoring his first goal since joining Columbus.. Impact: He made it onto the ice with the Blue Jackets shuffling their roster in the wake of Artem Anisimov’s injury.. It’s Comeau’s only point in four games as a Jacket, so don’t expect much out of him even if he does earn a semi-regular shift.. Artem Anisimov – #42 – Center – 6’3″ – 190lbs Tue.. Apr 16, 2013 | RotoWire News: Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards had no update on when Anisimov (head) might be able to return to action, the Columbus Dispatch reports.. Impact: He missed Monday’s tilt against the Avs and didn’t even skate before the game, so it doesn’t look like he’ll be able to play any time soon.. Nick Foligno – #71 – Left Wing – 6’0″ – 210lbs Mon.. Apr 15, 2013 | RotoWire News: Foligno scored the game-winning goal in overtime and added an assist against the Avalanche on Monday.. Impact: Foligno only has six goals and 18 points in 40 games this season, and isn’t likely to pick up that pace at this point.. Sergei Bobrovsky – #72 – Goaltender – 6’2″ – 190lbs Mon. source: http://msn.foxsports.com/nhl/team/columbus-blue-jackets/fantasy/66328?q=columbus-blue-jackets

Johansen’s late goal gives Blue Jackets playoff boost with 4-3 win over Sharks

I felt like it was good scoring chance right away.. This is the biggest goal I’ve scored in my career so far.. It’s a great feeling.” It was a wild swing of emotions in the third period, especially for Pavelski.. The Sharks rallied from 3-1 down to tie the game on his power-play goal with 5:03 remaining only to miss a chance to clinch the playoffs when they lost in regulation at home for just the second time this season.. “It was right there for us obviously,” Pavelski said.. “It’s tough.. You never want to make a play like that at the end.. You understand where you are in the game and you understand these things do happen once in a while.. It’s tough when they do, but we have to move on and get better from this and I have to try to execute better next time.” Marty Havlat and Andrew Desjardins also scored and Niemi made 18 saves in his 23rd straight start for the Sharks, who need one point to clinch their ninth straight playoff berth.. While San Jose still has three more games to clinch the playoffs, this loss dealt a blow to the team’s hopes to get home-ice advantage in the first round.. The Sharks fell two points behind fourth-place Los Angeles in the standings, but remained one point ahead of sixth-place St Louis. source: http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2013/04/22/johansen-late-goal-gives-blue-jackets-playoff-boost-with-4-3-win-over-sharks/

GAME BLOG: Blue Jackets at Sharks

— Saundrine Lanouette (@slanouette33) April 22, 2013 8:44 P.M.. — FIRST PERIOD ANALYSIS: All in all, you have to like the period the Blue Jackets put together to start off this hockey game.. San Jose out-shot them by a 13-7 margin but Mark Letestu’s 11th of the season has Columbus ahead 1-0.. Jack Johnson made a great read and jumped up into the play to make Letestu’s goal happen, sending a perfect pass across the crease for Letestu to tap the puck behind Antti Niemi.. Sergei Bobrovsky made a handful of strong saves and the Blue Jackets were sturdy in front of him, limiting time and space for the Sharks’ big forwards in the offensive zone.. #CBJ on the board first.. Terrific play from Jack Johnson across the paint to Mark Letestu.. — Rob Mixer (@RobMixer) April 22, 2013 8:22 P.M.. — MID PERIOD UPDATE: A good start for the visitors.. The Jackets have matched every bit of the intensity shown by their opponent tonight and have come up with some quality shifts in the Sharks’ zone. source: http://bluejackets.nhl.com/club/blogpost.htm?id=16185&navid=DL|CBJ|home
