|COLUMBUS: LAST SEASON: 45-30-7, 97 points. First wildcard in Eastern Division. |
LOST to Washington Capitals in first round of playoffs.
COACH: John Tortorella (fourth season, 18th NHL season.)
ADDED: F Anthony Duclair, F Riley Nash.
LOST: F Matt Calvert, F Thomas Vanek, D Ian Cole, D Jack Johnson.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Artemi Panarin. The Russian forward, acquired in a trade with Chicago in the summer of 2017, had a career year with the Blue Jackets, leading the team with 27 goals and 55 assists for 82 points. The Blue Jackets tried to lock him with a multiyear contract, but he decided to play out the final year of his deal, signaling that he doesn't really want to be in Columbus for the long haul. The Blue Jackets' window for getting to the next level stays open, providing the "Bread Man" has another good year before his probable departure.
OUTLOOK: Tortorella was signed to a two-year contract extension, but the organization was unable to lock up Panarin and star goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky with both entering the last year of their contracts. If the team can avoid that distraction and players such as Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno, Seth Jones, Zach Werenski and Pierre-Luc Dubois play to their potential, the Blue Jackets should be back in the NHL playoffs, where they have yet to make it out of the first round in four tries. Entering their 18th season of play, the Blue Jackets are still the only team in the NHL to have never won a playoff series.
|EDMONTON: LAST SEASON: 36-40-6, 78 points. Finished sixth in Pacific Division and missed playoffs.
COACH: Todd McLellan (Fourth season, 11th NHL season)
ADDED: D Jakub Jerabek, G Mikko Koskinen
LOST: D Eric Gryba
PLAYER TO WATCH: C Connor McDavid. Last season's Art Ross Trophy winner with a league-high 108 points, McDavid also won the Ted Lindsay Award as the most outstanding player as voted by the NHLPA. McDavid is the fastest, most dynamic and best player in hockey and is must-see entertainment every time he steps on the ice. Watch him as much as possible.
OUTLOOK: Who knows? McDavid can't carry the Oilers to the playoffs by himself, and general manager Peter Chiarelli didn't do anything to shake up Edmonton's mix after such a disappointing year. Goaltender Cam Talbot needs to rebound and a young, unproven defense must be significantly better for playoff hockey to return to Edmonton.
|Blue Jackets seeking better luck when they face Oilers|
At this point in the season, teams sometimes need just a little puck luck.
The Columbus Blue Jackets certainly could have used some in their last game in Calgary.
The Blue Jackets hit the post four times in the first two periods of a 4-2 loss Tuesday that snapped a three-game point streak. They hope to get some better bounces when they continue their trip Thursday night in Edmonton.
"We're not getting the results, which is frustrating, but the process is there," Blue Jackets forward Matt Duchene told NHL.com. "The second you deviate from the process is when you start to fail and deserve to fail. We'll keep going and we'll stay with it and take it one day at a time.
"We're playing good hockey, just not getting the offense that we needed. We're finding ways to not score, I guess."
Columbus, which lost in Calgary for the first time since 2011, fell behind 2-1 when it allowed a goal with 7.2 seconds remaining in the first period. The Flames scored what proved to be the winner just 35 seconds into the second.
"You can't get frustrated. We played a good game," Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. "It's hard to overcome, I think, when you give up a goal late in the period and get scored on early in a period. But we did a lot of good things."
The Blue Jackets (84 points), who hold a one-point lead on Montreal for the Eastern Conference's second and final wild-card playoff berth, played their second straight game without captain Nick Foligno, who is back in Columbus dealing with a personal matter. His absence is reportedly not related to the heart issues faced by his 5-year-old daughter Milana, which caused him to miss five games earlier this season.
Blue Jackets defenseman Markus Nutivaara also missed Tuesday's game because of an illness.
The Oilers will open a five-game homestand. They went 1-2-0 on their just completed trip, including a 7-2 loss Tuesday in St. Louis.
"Not to take anything away from St. Louis, they were outstanding, but we're running on fumes, need to get home and see if we can get some rest," Oilers coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We're banged up and there's not much left of us. We just need to regroup and get ready for the homestand. It's a tough loss."
By the midpoint of Tuesday's game, the Oilers trailed 4-0 and had been outshot 24-6. Goaltender Mikko Koskinen was pulled 5:42 into the second period after allowing the third St. Louis goal.
Koskinen was in the net for the entirety of a 6-3 loss Sunday at Las Vegas.
"He's the guy we've hung our hat on and he's had really good outings and a couple of tough ones and every time he's had a tough one, he's rebounded. This is another chance for him to grow and us to grow with him," Hitchcock said of Koskinen. "So many goals were going in I just wanted to stop the bleeding."
Edmonton forward Connor McDavid was held off the scoresheet by the Blues, snapping his 12-game points streak and eight straight with at least two points.
