The Columbus Blue Jackets had their best season in the franchise’s history last season, and they’re looking to pick up where they left off!
Colombus surprised many last spring by heading into the post-season, while they nearly broke the record for most consecutive wins by an National Hockey League team.
However, the 2017-18 season is going to be different, and more challenging. They now have a target on their backs. NHL clubs aren’t going to underestimate the Jackets anymore. Other teams will be gunning for them, refusing to be surprised by Columbus yet again.
Another challenge ahead: the Blue Jackets have never clinched a playoff spot in consecutive seasons, and will look to change that outcome comes April.
John Tortorella’s team will need to be more consistent this season to repeat, and outdo, last year’s success.
They will need to meet their expectations, and the expectations of all Jacket’s fans out there. Get ready!
