Columbus Blue Jackets Playoff TicketsThe Columbus Blue Jackets is an expansion team that was added to the NHL in 2000 along with the Minnesota Wild. The first three seasons did not go well for the organization. Thereafter, it began to find its footing on the ice. Things started to turn around when All-Star Rick Nash joined the team. Nash is counted as one of the organization's most notable players. When the team finally made it to the postseason, it lost to the Detroit Red Wings in the first round, but, admittedly, the achievement still felt like a victory for the team.
