Playing .500 and Weekend Back-to-Back

March 2, 2019 - 12:36 AM ET

By Tom T ver the past two weeks the CBJ have been .500. With 19 games left, winning 10 and losing 9 would leave the Jackets with 95 points. The last time a team in the East made the playoffs with 95 points or les was in 2013/2014 when DET and CBJ both had 93 points. Going .500 for the rest of the...

Where They Stand

March 5, 2019 - 11:55 AM ET

As many of you know since the trade deadline the Jackets have only won 1 of 4 games and have fallen out of a playoff spot. Currently with 75 points in 65 games they are 3rd in the Wild Card race behind PIT (77 points in 65 games) and MON (77 points in 66 games). Of the 17 games left, the Jackets...

Positive Signs

March 17, 2019 - 11:36 AM ET

By Tom T With 4 games and 8 points at stake, last week was an important week for the CBJ. A pair of back-to-back games, all against playoff teams would tell us a little bit about who our Jackets are heading into the playoffs. An early week shutout loss to division foe NYI could have started a dis...

9 games left

March 21, 2019 - 1:10 PM ET

The Madness of March has already begun in the hockey world. And for the Jackets it has been dicier than expected this March. Columbus has not put themselves in a solid playoff position with some inconsistent play and challenging schedule. Tonight’s matchup has the Jackets facing two of the best...
