The Old Blue Jackets Showed Up Last Night

from Rob Oiler at the Columbus Dispatch,

For the bulk of their existence, the angle on the Blue Jackets has been their ability to bend the rules of geometry. The CBJ are always turning the corner, even as they keep running in circles.

The Jackets seemingly make strides in their quest toward something resembling consistent success, then something like last night happens.

How to describe it? The hurt of a hand slammed in a car door, perhaps? The score was tied at 3 and the seconds were ticking down ... 6 ... 5 ... 4 ... One huge point sat there on the doorstep. Then, a scrum, a poke of a stick against a wandering puck and, well, Jackets defenseman Dalton Prout didn’t need to see what happened to know what happened.

The only reason the BJs have a chance at anything is because of Bobrovsky.  When he doesn’t put in a Vezina performance, they lose.  The only other bright spot on that team is Johansen, which is funny to see them finally get a top end center after they lose Nash.
