With a 2-1 overtime victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday, the Columbus Blue Jackets finished their third game of the 2017-18 regular season.

Nearly four percent of the Columbus Blue Jackets’ regular season has passed. The club has played three of their 82 scheduled regular season games and it’s gone fairly well.

Starting off with a 5-0 win over the Islanders in the season opener was a great way to kick off the campaign, but a 5-1 loss to the Blackhawks was not. Despite the bad road loss, the CBJ got things straightened out to win 2-1 over the Hurricanes to start 2-1-0 on the season.

Record aside, what have really learned from the first few games? Well, that’s a great question, stranger. I’ll tell you!
