The Columbus Blue Jackets are riding high on an 11-game point streak heading into Friday's game against the Calgary Flames and Stanley Cup playoffs are in reach after a three-year hiatus, and Vaclav (Vinny) Prospal says it's because the team has finally learned how to win.
"What drives an individual is to prove people wrong," Prospal said. "This is something that is awesome right now. You see us every day in practice. You see us after games. You see how different it is compared to last year. For us as an organization, we're finally learning how to win, how to play meaningful games down the stretch in the second half of a season. With all due respect to some of the players who were here prior, that wasn't always the case."
