As the Blue Jackets keep winning games, some names around the NHL media landscape are beginning to notice.

One is ESPN's Greg Wyshynski, who took time out of his schedule recently to interview Blue Jackets center Pierre-Luc Dubois, who shed some light on the CBJ's motivation of late while going 12-2-4 in the last 18 games.

"Ever since my first year, we talked a lot about being the underdogs because that's how it is," Dubois told Wyshynski in the Q&A. "People follow other teams, and the teams they don't follow, they write them off. Since my first shift, we've had that attitude. That [playoff] win over Tampa was a huge boost for our organization. This year, we're just following up."

The conversation also goes into stories about John Tortorella, what it was like to drop the gloves with Sidney Crosby, the sports teams PLD roots for and Dubois' love of Baby Yoda.
