Sergei Bobrovsky over Olympic disappointment, looking to lead Jackets' late push to playoffs

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky says he's over the disappointment of Russia's Olympic failure in hockey. Now he's committed to getting the Columbus Blue Jackets into the playoffs.

The Blue Jackets will return Thursday night at New Jersey in their first game back after the NHL's Olympic hiatus.

The club is fourth in the Metro Division, three points out of third and in the thick of the wild-card chase in the East.

With 24 games over the next 6 1/2 weeks, the Blue Jackets need a strong finish. They'll need a repeat of what they put together a year ago, going from last place to tying for a playoff spot by closing with a 19-5-5 record.

Marian Gaborik is back from a broken collarbone, which caused him to miss the Sochi Games.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
