Jackets For Jackets starts Friday

+

The Blue Jackets have announced that the annual "Jackets for Jackets" holiday charity drive collecting winter coats and toys for families in need will begin at this Friday's game against the Detroit Red Wings. You can donate at Nationwide Arena, the Blue Line shop at Tuttle Mall, the Dispatch Ice Haus, or any of the Columbus area Chiller ice rinks. It's the time of year where those in need are least likely to ask for help, but most likely to need a hand. Please give if you are able.

Nash Named NHL's First Star Of The Week!

2

With 6 goals and 2 GWGs last week, it's not surprising that Rick Nash would be named the NHL's first start for the week of November 15th. The captain is riding an eight game point streak into tonight, and a five game goal scoring streak.

Blunden on Emergency Recall

+

Still no word on Derek Dorsett's condition, but this may say it all - the team is flying Mike Blunden out of Springfield to meet the club in San Jose on an emergency recall.

Pat Burns Passes Away

2

The hockey world has suffered a huge loss today, as former coach Pat Burns has lost his battle with cancer. He was only 58. I was really hoping that Burns would have made it in to the Hockey Hall of Fame before his passing, but it never came to be. I have always had a tremendous amount of respect for coach Burns, and it saddens me to see him not with us anymore. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Burns family.

I had no idea the Jackets had this available. Only if I had the money... They asked, so I'll ask...where do you want to sit when you're at Nationwide Arena?

Scott Arniel: Goalie Whisperer?

+

A good read from the Hockey News on how Scott Arniel got Vancouver goaltender Cory Schneider on track when both were part of the Manitoba Moose organization. I hadn't considered how Arniel might affect the ongoing development of Steve Mason, but again it seems like he might be one of the best possible guys for the job.

Falcons defeat Bridgeport 4-3

2

The Springfield Falcons put together a nice come from behind 4-3 win over the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (NY Islanders) Tuesday night at the MassMutual Center in Springfield. It was a big night for the line of Matt Calvert, Ben Guite and Tomas Kubalik, as they accounted for all four Falcon tallies. The Falcons return to the ice Friday night at home when they take on the Hartford Wolfpack for the last time before they are rebranded as the Connecticut Whale.
