Week 6 Power Rankings - Jackets slide further - Up to 6 from 8
The Jackets are finding out that they can only ride a hot goaltender for so long as they've lost seven of nine in November, though three of those have admittedly come via the shootout and those aren't the same as your run-of-the-mill loss. - Sitting at #12.
Surviving without two key veterans in the lineup – Michael Peca and Fredrik Modin. - Down to 19 from 16
A couple of weeks ago, coach Ken Hitchcock said his team still has to prove it can win on the road to make a real statement. It hasn't yet. - Down to 16 from 13
Nash can’t do it all on his own - awaiting PR release - down to 14 from 10
The bad: the Jackets have lost six of their last seven including two shootout defeats. The good: they notched three power-play goals against Detroit on Sunday. Columbus sailed into the game 3-for-44 on the PP since Oct. 27. The puzzling: After starting the season by winning seven of his first nine, Pascal Leclaire has dropped two of his last four while allowing more than three goals in three. - down to 19 from 11
Hitch will keep them in the hunt. - down to 15 from 12
The Blue Jackets are thankful for Rick Nash buying into Ken Hitchcock's system. - awaiting PR release

Average Power Rankings Score: 14.42 (11.6 last week)

The Jackets slide continues as they missed out on some precious wins/points last week. They've got 3 games this week starting with Florida at home tonight, the Wild away on Friday and the Wings at home on Saturday.
