The 5-Hole, CBJ News and Notes – 10/28/08

Every Tuesday, WFNY’s The 5-Hole brings you up to date with the goings-on of the CBJ…

The Week That Was

Week: 1-3-0, 2 points
Overall: 3-6-0, 6 points (5th division; T14th conference)

Last week, I led this paragraph with “Ugh.” This week, we’ll lead with a much louder and longer UGGGHHHHH! FYI, “T14th conference” is the same as saying DEAD LAST. The Jackets played and won a very nice game last Tuesday night against Vancouver, and promptly went directly into the tank and lost three straight, two of which were home games. [Read more...]

Oh Captain, My Captain

Blue Jackets 5, Stars 4 – OT (Box Score) – NHL.com Highlights

The Scores Don’t Count…

Blackhawks 4, Blue Jackets 3 (Box Score)

…but the performances do. The Blue Jackets opened their exhibition season last night in Chicago, and it was more an exhibition of young players than anything else.

On display were Derick Brassard and Jakub Voracek, as well as several young defensemen trying to make an impact and impress the coaches and front office staff. Though the game was not on any kind of television (so that FSN Ohio could bring you another riveting installment of Reds Baseball!), and so I can’t say for certain how well everyone played, the reports were positive for both Brassard and Voracek, as well as second-year defenseman Kris Russell.
