COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - There are a lot of reasons why the Columbus Blue Jackets won't make the playoffs, and really only one why they might.

Last in the NHL not so terribly long ago, they've surprised everyone all season. Why not once more?

A cynic would point out they have too many road games (6) and too few at home (2); that the remaining opponents are daunting; and that there are too many good teams to overcome.
