Another solid effort. The coaching staff continues to do a good job of getting the team ready especially of late. The players believe in each other and are fighting for one another. And this team is a very hard working team and that's no bull. Don't know if this continues but they are really playing well and getting more confident with each win. Can't wait to get Arty and Dubi healthy. And if I can single out one player it's Matt Calvert. He is possessed right now. Good on you Matty. Keep it up boys.
Winning is sweet and a win against Detroit is even sweeter. Awesome effort again tonight and a well deserved win. Too bad we didn't get to see Boll pummel Tootoo. Also congrats to Bob for the first shutout. The last time Columbus shutout the opposing team was a little over a year ago btw, March 1st 2012, 2-0 in Colorado.
Losing to the CBJ 3 out of 4 times causes "board rage"
It's a first for them to get beat by the Jackets that much... Even when Mason was playing Calder hockey under Hitchcock's defensive shield the Jackets couldn't do what they have done this season.... winning the season series.
They're actually starting to look like the team I'd hope the Jackets would be in the offseason. And this with Wiz, AA, Dorsett, Dubi injured. Even when we lose we play competitive, entertaining hockey. I'm very pleased and we're possibly closer then we think we are. Of course we may be playing our way out of the top three, but that's what the Jackets do.
