PREVIEW: The Blue Jackets look for a home win vs. Los Angeles

Columbus returns to action Thursday against the Kings

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider /

KINGS (11-19-2) at BLUE JACKETS (16-12-2) 
Thursday, 7 p.m., Nationwide Arena (Fox Sports Ohio, Fox Sports app, 97.1 The Fan) 

The storyline was written as soon as Oliver Bjorkstrand took a drop pass from Scott Harrington, curled into the high slot, and ripped a laser of a shot past Vancouver goalie Jacob Markstrom on Tuesday night. 

The snipe gave Columbus a 2-1 lead and snapped a month-long goal-less streak for the Blue Jackets' winger, and both the team and Bjorkstrand were primed for sweet redemption. 

"I thought we were going to get over that tipping point when (Bjorkstrand) scores," head coach John Tortorella said. "We're alive (on the bench), eight or nine minutes left to play. I thought it was set up really nice for us."

RECAP: Blue Jackets 2, Canucks 3

Columbus sees a third-period lead disappear in Nationwide Arena.

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider /

The Blue Jackets couldn't get back in the win column Tuesday night at Nationwide Arena, allowing two goals in the last 3:04 to lose 3-2 to visiting Vancouver. Columbus fell to 16-12-2 on the season while Vancouver improved to 14-16-3.

Game in a Paragraph 

Oliver Bjorkstrand's third-period goal gave Columbus a 2-1 lead, but late tallies by Elias Pettersson and Jake Virtanen gave the Canucks the win. Seth Jones scored 47 seconds into the game for the other CBJ goal on a night the team played an improved all-around game but still left with nothing to show for it in the win column.

RW Josh Anderson has had an "even" or "plus" plus/minus rating in all but two games this season.

C Boone Jenner has 3-8-11 in the last 17 games.

D Seth Jones, who saw his five-game point streak come to an end on Dec. 8 vs. Washington (3-4-7), is two points shy of 200 in his NHL career.

D David Savard is one assist from 100 in his NHL career.

PREVIEW: Blue Jackets vs. Canucks

Jackets look to rebound at home against Canucks

by Craig Merz @BlueJacketsNHL /


The reset button was hit as soon as the horn sounded at the conclusion of the Blue Jackets' 4-0 loss to the Washington Capitals at Nationwide Arena on Saturday.

While the margin of defeat was alarming it was the way the Blue Jackets showed little fight, passion or structure - coupled with a 9-6 beatdown to the Calgary Flames in the previous home game - that had coach John Tortorella aggravated, to put it mildly.

"After the Washington game it was the exact word I had in my head walking off the ice that we're going to have to reset this team," he told the media on Monday. "When I broke down the tape yesterday, there was no question."
