Before heading into their first matchup with the Detroit Red Wings last week, the Columbus Blue Jackets were on a five-game winning streak. The Jackets played stellar hockey and with a win over Detroit at home, the Jackets would be in first place in the Western Conference at the end of November.
However, the Jackets came up short against the Red Wings and lost 2-1. This would start a downward spiral for the Jackets as they have only gotten one point in their last five games, all losses, with two of those losses being blowouts to Buffalo and Pittsburgh.
There have been so many apparent issues in each game for the Jackets that they look nothing like the team that recorded the best start in Columbus Blue Jackets history.
