The Columbus Blue Jackets have pushed their way into playoff position in the Eastern Conference and look to continue moving up when they host the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night. The Blue Jackets have earned at least a point in 17 of their last 19 games (13-2-4) with last season’s leading goal scorer Cam Atkinson scoring once and setting up another in Thursday’s 3-2 victory over Carolina after missing almost a month with an ankle injury.
