Blue Jackets right wing Jared Boll

Six straight wins for the Blue Jackets

The Blue Jackets are off today after sweeping their second straight back-to-back. They weren't perfect, and it wasn't often pretty, but the Jackets survived Buffalo with a 4-3 shootout win in First Niagara Center on Saturday.
That's , matching a franchise record. They last won six in a row from March 24 to April 3, 2006, when Doug MacLean was general manager, Gerard Gallant was coach, goaltenders Marc Denis and Pascal Leclaire were alternating starts and the Nationwide Arena cannon was just a faint idea.

Richards got it backwards

It was all good fun that came to an end this morning. Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards was not thrilled with practice today. He – gasp! – used coarse language. He wanted to see more from his players. The Washington Capitals visit on Friday and he doesn’t want to be embarrassed. That’s already happened in a game against the Caps, when the Jackets collapsed in a 4-1 loss in D.C. October.
Wow Richards needs to push them in games not practice he has got it backwards.
