Senators filibusted, Mason helps makes history.

Mason shutout his seventh game of the season. Not only did he help the Jackets veto the Senators 1-0, but he also put himself first in the NHL for Shutouts (7) and Goals-against average (1.98).

Another rookie, Jake Voracek, scores the only goal of the game. But this game was not won only by young talent. This game was won by a smart team with great depth and a chemistry that is unprecedented in CBJ history.

Some other representative players worth noting this game are Michael Peca, R.J. Umberger, Jason Williams, and Manny Malhotra. These are just a few of the names that make the depth of the Jackets campaign so powerful.

This win makes franchise history with the first ever three straight winning months. The race to the playoffs is looking better than ever for the Jackets and the Curse may soon be history as well. Mason has started 16 straight games for the Blue Jackets, winning 11 of them. He started the same week that Shake the Curse began its eradication. Coincidence? We believe it's fate. Shake the Curse.

And a one, and a two, and a three!

Our amazing Jackets clipped the wings and the mojo of the motown'rs with a 3-2 overtime win. And because we "hate" that state (Go Bucks) it proves again that the infamous curse has taken another blow to the diaphragm. Hopefully the curse has been silenced.

Front-man and All-Star Rick Nash lights the lamp three times, the last and game winning goal was in the remaining 93 seconds of overtime. Blue-wigs-off to his third career hat trick.

Singing sweet harmony to Nash was rookie Steve Mason who deflected 21 shots for C-bus. This makes it 12 and 5 at home since the eradication.

Way to go team. Shake the Curse.

Jackets eradicate Avalanche winning streak and the curse at the same time

The Jackets slam Colorado 4-3 on Tuesday night for their third straight win. This makes their home record 11-4 since the Shake the Curse began. Big shout out to Kristian Huselius, Jakub Voracek, Michael Peca and R.J. Umberger who all scored a goal. Goalie Steve Mason had 23 saves to improve to 16-9-1.

A most impressive drive occurred in the third period when the Jacket's hit the net three times in under three minutes - a first in Jacket's history. A very whiny Avalanche team receives a slew of penalty's in the third period letting Columbus stop the Avalanche's three game winning streak.

The Jackets have taken sole possession of eighth place and are currently in playoff contention.

Blue Hairs get a call out on Fox TV, and NBC4 TV shot a segment to air Friday at 11. The Shake Campaign and CBJ are on a roll.

Shake the Curse!

Shake the Curse pulls one out of the hat

In spite of 6 regulars on injured reserve, including El Capitan Rick Nash, the CBJ tamed the Wild with a 4-2 victory. 18-year-old rookie Filatov’s hat trick had the Nationwide fans in a frenzy.

Is the curse eradication working? You decide. Since the first curse eradication in November, Columbus has now won 10 of the last 14 games at home. It appears that even a depleted roster will not stop our drive to the playoffs. Nice work team.

Go Jackets - Shake the Curse.

Caps shooting blanks against Mason

Last night in Washington was a sensational game for the CBJ. They entered the Caps home arena as severe underdogs. Washington had won 10 straight at home and were 18-1-1 overall at home. The CBJ had 7 starters out with injuries. Mason stoned them again, including 12 saves against NHL goal scoring leader Ovechkin. Shake the Curse!!
