Jack Johnson led all players in ice time once again as he played 26:49 minutes in a 3-1 loss on Saturday to Pittsburgh.

Johnson has been a workhorse in the playoffs which included a 38:21 minute game in Game 2 which went into double overtime. "I don't think there is a (ceiling)," coach Todd Richards said. "Jack's ceiling is outside somewhere. It is impressive the minutes that he's been able to log. And he's playing tough minutes. They aren't easy. He's playing against great players, world-class players, and he's able to do it over and over again." Johnson has three goals and five points in five playoff games this post-season.

Jack Johnson has been tearing it up lately, oddly enough, with seven points and a +6 rating in his last six games.

Jan 24 - 7:35 PM

Jack Johnson enjoyed a rare strong performance with a goal and an assist in a 3-2 win over the Lightning on Monday.

Jan 13 - 9:43 PM

Jack Johnson is staying upbeat despite the Blue Jackets' struggles this season.

Columbus hasn't been able to get a real streak going - good or bad - in over a month. However, they have a 10-14-3 record, which puts them five points back in the playoff race. "We're still right there," Johnson argued. "I've learned that usually after the All-Star break – this year it’s the Olympic break – the season gets ratcheted up a little bit, so you have to make sure you're in a good spot for that final sprint." They certainly still have a very real shot, but they can't afford to slip too much further if they're hoping to stage a comeback following the Olympic break. They will play against Tampa Bay on Tuesday

Jack Johnson and Artem Anisimov each finished a minus-three in Columbus' 3-0 lost to the Penguins on Saturday night.

Johnson, who also had four hits and a shot on goal, is a solid blueliner but he's typically not been much of an asset in the plus/minus department. Anisimov, who had two hits and two shots on goal, has a career plus-10 rating, as he's pretty good defensively and away from the puck. It was a very uninspired performance all around for the Blue Jackets.
