CBJ Gets Fourth Straight Win

Saturday, March 10, 2018


The Blue Jackets are getting hot at a key time.  With a 3-2 victory against Detroit on Friday, Columbus has now won four straight games, which has pushed its record to 36-28-5.  That puts the Blue Jackets in the first Wild Card spot with 77 points in 69 games, though they’ve now played in more contests than the teams trying to catch up to them.

 

New Jersey, which controls the second Wild Card seed now, has 76 points in 68 contests while Florida has 73 points in just 65 contests.  So Columbus’ position is still far from secure.

 

After playing three games in four nights and four contests over the span of just six days, Columbus will get a bit of a breather before taking on Montreal on Monday.  Beyond that, some key games left on the Blue Jackets’ calendar are Thursday’s contest against Philadelphia and a game on March 22 versus Florida.  They aren’t playing New Jersey again, so they don’t have any direct way to put more distance between the two squads.
