Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky: Gets pulled again
Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 13 shots in the first period against Washington on Saturday before being pulled.
It was a mercy pull by coach John Tortorella, who was quick to tell reporters after the game that he didn't like how his team played. Bob the goalie still has a winning record (11-10), but his save percentage is now .898. Skill-wise, Bobrovsky is one of the elite seven or eight netminders in the NHL. But right now, his production doesn't come anywhere close to elite. Maybe a rest would help. Monitor starts closely and be prepared to juggle starters, just in case.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky: Set for clash against familiar foe
Bobrovsky will field shots from the Capitals as Saturday's home starter, Jackets Insider reports.
Bobrovsky's progressive ratios took a huge hit Tuesday, when he allowed eight goals on 26 shots in a 9-6 home loss to the Flames. The Russian now has a 3.04 GAA and .901 save percentage over 20 games, with a winning record (11-9-0) being the lone consolation prize for Bobrovsky's fantasy owners, though he still doesn't have a shutout in 2018-19. Looking ahead, the 30-year-old will face a Capitals team that he is quite familiar with, as he's logged 1,329:35 of crease time against the Capitals, while maintaining an 8-10-4 record, 2.93 GAA and .904 save percentage against them over 23 career games. In fact, the Penguins are the only team that he's seen more of between nine years of NHL service time.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Gabriel Carlsson: Moves back to AHL
Carlsson was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Friday.
It's another day and another roster move involving Carlsson, who sat out of Thursday's game against the Flyers as a healthy scratch, which was the plan all along. He's shuffled about the organization's ranks several times this season, and it's difficult to rely on a player without a stable role at hockey's highest stage.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Brandon Dubinsky: Rare multi-point outing
Dubinsky racked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers.
Both of Dubinsky's points came in the opening frame, as he assisted on a goal by Seth jones before potting one himself. This was only the second multi-point effort of the season for the former Rangers forward, who entered play with just one helper over the previous eight games.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Artemi Panarin: Continues to rack up helpers
Panarin dished out a pair of helpers in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over Philadelphia.
Just another day at the office for Panarin, who has 31 points through 27 games this season. While he's on pace to eclipse last season's career-high 82 points by 12, the talented Russian's also in line for a career-low 21 goals.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Seth Jones: Puts quick end to overtime
Jones scored two goals -- including the overtime winner -- in Thursday's 4-3 triumph over the Flyers.
After Claude Giroux gave the hosts a 1-0 lead just 5:58 in, Jones responded with the equalizer 1:08 later. He employed a quick strike approach in overtime as well, ending the extra session after just 10 seconds. Jones' season debut was delayed by injury, but he's made up for lost time with 16 points through 21 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky: Back to winning ways
Bobrovsky's 23 saves were just enough to pull out a 4-3 overtime win in Philadelphia on Thursday.
Bobrovsky will be kicking himself for not pulling the game out in regulation, as it took Travis Sanheim scoring twice in the final eight minutes for the Flyers just to get it to overtime. While this was far from the two-time Vezina Trophy winner's finest effort, Bobrovsky's owners can breathe a sigh of relief after he gave up eight goals to the Flames in Tuesday's loss. Bob's now 8-3-0 in his past 11 starts.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Gabriel Carlsson: Recalled from minors
Carlsson was promoted from AHL Cleveland on Thursday.
While Carlsson will be in attendance for the club's clash with the Flyers on Thursday, he will be watching from the press box. The Jackets had an extra spot under the 23-man roster limit and apparently decided to bring in the blueliner for added emergency depth with Dean Kukan out on a conditioning assignment....

Blue Jackets' Anthony Duclair: Serving as healthy scratch
Duclair (undisclosed) will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's clash with the Flyers, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.
Despite having been initially held out for an undisclosed injury, Duclair is now being held out in favor of Oliver Bjorkstrand. Considering the Jackets just got shelled 9-6 by the Flames on Tuesday, it's a little surprising to see coach John Tortorella not shift around his lines -- although defensive responsibilities aren't exactly a focal point of Duclair's game....

Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky: Starting in Philadelphia
Bobrovsky will patrol the crease in Thursday's road game against the Flyers, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Bobrovsky was awful in his last start, surrendering eight goals on 26 shots en route to an ugly 9-6 loss to Calgary on Tuesday. The Russian netminder will look to shake off that poor performance and pick up his 11th win of the season in a road matchup with a Flyers team that's 5-7-1 at home this campaign.... See More ...

Blue Jackets' Dean Kukan: Heads out on assignment
Kukan was reassigned to AHL Cleveland for a conditioning stint, the team announced Wednesday.
Kukan has appeared in just one of the Jackets' previous 19 outings and can now spend up to two weeks in the minors in order to get some game action. When he is in the lineup, the Swiss defender is logging a mere 12:21 of ice time and has zero points to show for it.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Joonas Korpisalo: Yields goal on only two shots
Korpisalo allowed a goal on two shots during 13:31 of relief in a 9-6 loss to the Flames on Tuesday.
He didn't factor into the decision, and probably wasn't in many lineups because he didn't start, but it still would have been nice to see Korpisalo stop both the shots he faced. Instead, he took an unnecessary hit to his already poor numbers. Korpisalo is 5-1-2 but owns a .883 save percentage and 3.76 GAA this season.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Cam Atkinson: Keeps cannon operator employed
Atkinson recorded a hat trick in Tuesday's 9-6 home loss to the Flames.
Atkinson's hat trick was particularly impressive considering all three tallies took place during 5-on-5 play, and he was able to convert three of five shots amid the scoring barrage. The guileful top-line winger has been on an absolute tear since returning from an illness Nov. 10, as he's recorded 13 goals and six assists in the last 11 games. Atkinson will look to stretch his point streak to 12 straight contests when the Blue Jackets head to Philadelphia for Thursday's road game against the Flyers.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky: Bottom falls out in second period
Bobrovsky allowed eight goals on 26 shots in a 9-6 loss to the Flames on Tuesday.
The Russian netminder has been up-and-down a lot this season, and this one is his low point. Columbus built a comfortable three-goal lead in the first period, but Bobrovsky and the Blue Jackets yielded seven goals over a 27-minute period beginning in the second. Behind this performance, Bobrovsky's numbers take a huge hit. He is 17-11-8 with a .901 save percentage and a 3.04 GAA.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Anthony Duclair: Out again
Duclair (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against the Flames, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.
Duclair will miss a third consecutive game Tuesday, but he's still considered day-to-day with his undisclosed issue, which suggests he could be ready to return as soon as Thursday against the Flyers. The 23-year-old winger has been a solid depth scorer for the Blue Jackets this season, notching eight goals and 12 points in 24 appearances, so they'll hope to have him back on the ice sooner rather than later....
