#CBJ Best of the Web: Apr. 3

by Staff / Columbus Blue Jackets

The Blue Jackets' winning streak is at eight games and counting!

After a month of March that included wins over the Blues, Blackhawks, Ducks, and Red Wings, the Jackets stayed hot in April by kicking off the month with a comeback win over the Islanders. Nationwide Arena was roaring as the Jackets overcame a two-goal deficit in the third period and got the job done in the shootout once again. Fans are finally seeing the team that was expected to suit up at Nationwide Arena all season, and the results have been great.

Let's see how Jackets fans on the web are enjoying 12 wins in 14 games!

The Blue Jackets had a lot of big performers in their win over the Islanders, but who were the most important players in the comeback? Was it Ryan Johansen with his tying goal and shootout winner? Was it an under-the-weather Jack Johnson spurring the comeback with his third goal in three games? The Union and Blue name their three stars from a big Jackets home win. 

Johansen has been having a great season for the Jackets, as has Nick Foligno. But the Blue Jackets have had some other great contributors this season, and The Hockey Writers count down the five best from the rest of the roster.

The Jackets are the hottest team in hockey, and that includes their play away from Nationwide Arena. The Blue Jackets have won eight straight on the road, and the people at The Cannon offer their take on the Kings of the Road.

The Jackets are playing the spoiler role pretty well, but perhaps it's more than that. The Jackets are healthier than they have been all season and giving fans a glimpse of what could have been with a full-strength roster all season. The Hockey Writers wonder whether the Jackets are this years spoilers, or misunderstood contenders.
