Finally, a Win

There was probably more hype about the Columbus Blue Jackets this season than ever in the history of the franchise. So, it was quite a shock when the season started out with 8 straight losses. Not surprisingly, Todd Richards was fired as coach and replaced with John Tortorella. Torts is an established coach, but had been out of coaching for about a year. Finally, in Denver Saturday night, the Jackets won a game, 4-3 over the Avalanche.

The goaltending has been pretty miserable so far. But all the pieces of the puzzle are there, and Columbus has the potential for some offensive fire power. Obviously, if they can turn the corner soon, the team can contend for a playoff spot as had been expected.
