Last month we asked our readers to assign a letter grade for the Columbus Blue Jackets performance for the month of October. Now that the month of November has come to a close, we ask you to once again do the same.
The Jackets went 5-8-3 for the month, after starting November with 4 straight losses. Columbus then went on a 5 game points streak that included a win, two OT losses, and a SO loss. The point streak gave way to the win one / lose one pattern that the CBJ have been on for the last 7 games to close out the month.
While the shutout win over the Toronto Maple Leafs was one of the high points of the month, the 7-0 loss to the Edmonton Oilers has proven to be a low point for the Jackets for the entire first quarter of the season. The CBJ were able to avenge the blow out loss with a 4-2 win over Edmonton at Nationwide Arena on Friday.
The result of the October poll was a 74% average, or a C-. At the end of October, the Jackets were 4th in the Metropolitan Division. Now they are 7th with 23 points, which puts them ahead of the Islanders by 3 points. The Jackets trail the 6th place Hurricanes by 2 points and the Pittsburgh Penguins are in first with 37 points. The Jackets remain in the basement of the Metropolitan Division, but the playoff picture is still wide open with many of the team close together in points.
We will continue to grade the Columbus Blue Jackets each month to get a clear view of the pulse of the Jackets fan base and how they feel the team is performing. Vote below and be sure to check back next week for the results!
