It was a big week on the ice and off of it for the Blue Jackets. The squad went 2-0 with an overtime win in Montreal before a 2-0 win Friday night at home against the Rangers. Off the ice there was even more excitment around the team.
After Cam Atkinson signed a seven-year, $41.125 milion extension, his pals were sure to let him know how happy they were he'll be staying home.
He sure did, Calvy.
We for one are so very excited for many more backdoor tap-ins, let me be the first (okay, probably not the first) to say.
David Savard Reaches Beard Goal
This week saw defenseman David Savard reach his Movember goal, get his beard shaved, have Barbasol donate an additional $5,000 towards Savy's cause and the donations continue till the end of the month. It was all very, very glorious.
We think that there are plenty of occasions that are special and worth dancing, Savy. Care to show us your moves?
Artemi Panarin has a workout friend. His name is Sergei Bobrovsky. He stops all things flying towards him at high rates of speeds, but pucks are his speciality.
Before they were doing yoga and walking on a treadmill sideways and backwards, Panarin and Bob took in the sites and sounds of Montreal while the team was in town.
Bob fan art speaks to our souls!
They wear the same jerseys on the ice and they wear the same clothes off it too.
And lastly - we were honored to host members of the Columbus Crew Friday night. We hope they had fun, and by this video, it seems they surely did.
Good luck to the Crew as they start the first leg of the Eastern Conference Finals Tuesday at home against Toronto FC.
