[tps_title]5. The Columbus Blue Jackets starting 0-4-0[/tps_title]
The Columbus Blue Jackets missed the playoffs last season after qualifying for the playoffs the previous season. However, with a healthier team to start the year, along with the addition of Stanley Cup champion Brandon Saad from Chicago, the Blue Jackets were viewed as a dark-horse candidate in the Eastern Conference. But their woefully slow start is raising eyebrows. Steady goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has a goals-against average of 5.05, and he’s not getting any help from his defense. Should this continue, the Blue Jackets could find themselves well outside the playoff picture by the end of October.
