Hitchcock has Columbus going in the right direction
On November 1st Ken Hithcock was show the door on out of Philly, 21 days later he was named head coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets. Since that time Hitch has turned the Blue Jackets into a terrible team, who couldn't win into one of the hottest teams going. Before last nights 5-4 OT loss to the Coyotes, the Blue Jackets won 5 straight. Since December 1, they are 5-1 (5-2 after last night). Before the Coyotes game the past 6 games they haven't given up more than 2 goals a game; which is 0.83 GAA, while scoring 3.83 goals a game. Since the Blue Jackets have gone 5-2 their best player(Rick Nash) has played his best hockey in his young NHL career. Nash has put up 3 goals and 2 assists, getting at least 1 point in 3 of his last 4. Hitchcok who is known for his D-Zone being so good, so far it has worked. I am not one to brag but with Hitchcocks backround I knew this would be a good mix, so far so good.
