Columbus had not been home to a hockey team for quite a while before the NHL decided to give them permission for an expansion franchise in 1997. Thus the Blue Jackets were formed and are now the youngest side in the league. They will soon be facing the Philadelphia Flyers, one of the oldest teams in the history of the NHL and the second most successful franchise in terms of winning percentage. Will the Blue Jackets be able to get one over the Flyers? Get your Columbus Blue Jackets Philadelphia tickets and watch two quality sides clash in an epic battle at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Blue Jackets took to the ice rink for the first time in the 2000 season. Like all expansion teams, they struggled in the beginning and it took them quite a few seasons to finally find their feet. They recorded their first winning season after eight years and managed to qualify for their first playoff series in the 2009 season. Last season they emerged as one of the most competitive sides in the NHL and made it to the playoffs in convincing manner. They went all the way to the conference quarterfinals and hopes are high that they will go a step or two further this season.
The Flyers are in for a tough time when they come up against the Blue Jackets. The team from Columbus has its tail up after last season’s exploits and that puts them in a good position to go further than they have ever gone in their history.
