It’s working While watching the Blue Jackets systematically dissect the Coyotes last night, I found myself focusing more on the play away from the puck — the structure and timing of the forecheck, the play in the neutral zone and the layers of support that the Blue Jackets provide...

Blue Jackets' Matt Calvert scores game-winning goal after 30 stitches

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert made a nice block on a shot attempt during Friday’s game against the New York Rangers, but his face paid the price. The shot by Ryan McDonagh rose up and drilled Calvert, who went to the floor with blood pooling up on the ice in front of him. Matt Calvert takes a slap shot to the eye, skates off like it's no big deal. #HockeyTough...

WATCH: Bruins score on themselves

It’s not too often you see an own-goal when the guilty team has their goalie between the pipes. The Boston Bruins committed that very blunder when they hosted the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday. Straight off of a draw, the Bruins pulled the puck back and accidentally slid it into their own net. Fortunately, the team still held on to a 5-2 win following the goof.

Al Montoya says he 'took one for the team' during 10-0 loss

The Montreal Canadiens were pulverized last Friday night, falling 10-0 to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The game produced some crazy stats, but the wildest one was seeing goaltender Al Montoya’s save percentage drop nearly 50 points (.955 to .908) after allowing 10 goals on 40 shots. He didn’t stand a chance as the team in front of him played like dog poop. Montoya sacrificed...
