Blue Jackets lose to familiar foes in Red Wings and Shootout

Columbus, Ohio–The Detroit Red Wings may not be having a dominating season like we’re used to seeing, but they know how to win a close game, win in overtime and like last night, win in the shootout.

Todd Bertuzzi scored on a backhand in the fourth round of the shootout to give Detroit, a 1-0 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday, giving the Red Wings at least 100 points for the 10th year in a row.

Jimmy Howard (nhl)

Everybody on the Red Wings are doing good but goaltender Jimmy Howard is the best. He stopped 22 shots while getting his third shutout of his young career. A top Calder Cup Trophy candidate as an NHL rookie of the year, Howard is getting his game into form at the right time.

Howard said that he is inspired by the play of last season’s Calder winner, Columbus’ Steve Mason who caught a season-best 45 saves. Howard improves to 36-15- 10 on the season.

With the win, Detroit improves to 6-9 in shootouts and Columbus falls to 2-10. Shootouts and Overtime have been the two areas that have kept the Blue Jackets from improving as a team.

* Detroit was 5-0-1 vs. Columbus this season.

* Detroit has a record of 43-24-14 for 100 points, 18-14-8 on the road and 25-10-6 at Joe Louis Arena.

* Detroit has been in the playoffs 19 years in a row.

* Detroit’s 8 straight Central Division titles has ended with Chicago winning the division this year.

* The Red Wings since the Olympic Break at 15-3-2.

* Claude Noel, the Columbus coach has a record of 10-8-6.  Many observers think he should be given the job because the team has responded to his uptempo, free style of hockey which makes the team exciting to watch and utilizes their skills to the utmost. Plus every player I talked to likes his coaching style.

* The sellout crowd was announed at 18,512 which marked the seventh sellout of the season.
