Columbus Blue Jackets NHL TicketsSince joining the NHL in 2000, the Columbus Blue Jackets have become a beloved Ohio institution. The interesting team name came from a public contest. The "Blue Jackets" name was selected to honor the many Ohioans who lost their lives during the Civil War. It is with great pride and in remembrance of these heroes that the Blue Jackets skate onto the ice to compete in every game. During an NHL realignment after the 2012-13 season, the Blue Jackets were moved from the Western Conference to the Eastern Conference. Something about the move reinvigorated the team — in their first Eastern season they advanced to the playoffs. During the 2016-17 season, the Blue Jackets had a franchise-best when they posted 50 wins and a whopping 108 points. However, they lost in the first round to Pittsburg. The Blue Jackets' first postseason series win came two years later. They gave one of the most remarkable upsets in all of ice hockey history when they swept the No. 1-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning in four games.
