Blue Jackets open 2013-14 slate by hosting Calgary

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Coming off 1 of their best seasons ever, the Columbus Blue Jackets have unveiled the schedule for their first season in the Eastern Conference.

They open the 2013-14 season on Oct. 4 at home against Calgary and close it April 12 at Florida.

The Blue Jackets will play the members of their new division a total of 30 times, including 15 dates at Nationwide Arena. The Pittsburgh Penguins will pay three visits to Columbus while the New York Rangers, Philadelphia, Washington, New Jersey, Carolina and New York Islanders will each visit twice.

Division rivals include Detroit, Montreal, Toronto, Boston and Buffalo, Tampa Bay, Ottawa and Florida.

The team does not play from Feb. 7-27 because of the NHL's 16-day break for the Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
