With wins in their past 6 games and injured players such as all-star Cam Atkinson starting to trickle back into the line-up, the Blue Jackets look to put last year's disappointing season behind them by making the playoffs. Even more impressive: through 9 games of their current 10 game road trip, the team is 6-1-2 and have a chance to close out the road trip on a seven game winning streak if they manage to beat the Los Angeles Kings tonight.

The Blue Jackets are currently holding down the 6th seed in the Western Conference and are 4 points up on 9th place Minnesota, although the Wild have a game in hand. The Blue Jackets have 23 home games over the back half of the season which should give them a favourable advantage over some other teams down the stretch.

Scoring has been an issue for the team with only Jonathan Audy-Marchessault on pace for 20 or more goals and, despite leading the team in scoring, he also has the team's worst +/- with a -7 as he's done most of his offensive damage on the power play.

Goaltending has been the saviour of the team with a surprising bounce-back season from backup Steve Mason, who has been absolutely stellar over his 12 starts, posting an 8-3-1 record with a 1.86 goals against average and a scintillating 93.9%% save percentage. Sergei Bobrovsky has also been solid, albeit with a .500 record at 12-12-5.

The Florida Panthers and Winnipeg Jets have been running neck and neck in the Presidents Trophy race this season with Florida holding a 2-point edge halfway. Meanwhile, Jonathan Toews of the Calgary Flames leads the league in scoring and could potentially bring home his second consecutive Art Ross trophy if he keeps up the pace with 53 points through 43 games (on pace for 101 points).
