Last week, we were pretty upbeat about the Columbus Blue Jackets and they were starting to pull us back in. They had come off two consecutive wins at the Carolina Hurricanes in overtime and shootout and we thought ‘here they come.’
After a week that saw them garner just one measly point and getting swept — thoroughly outplayed at the Detroit Red Wings — the good vibes are long gone. The Jackets have slipped to sixth in the Central Division and the Nashville Predators have roared back with five-straight victories to take the last playoff spot.
Losers of four in a row, Columbus now finds themselves just one win ahead of the Red Wings in the standings, and six points above the Central Division basement.
On this week’s edition of The Cannon Cast we get into:
- A pathetic display in Detroit
- Sell for the future
- Roster movement
- Still better than the Buffalo Sabres
and much more!
Excited to have you Tyler!! https://t.co/LsQsGXRnv0— Columbus Blue Jackets (@BlueJacketsNHL) March 29, 2021
