Blue Jackets beat Toronto, 2-1 as Bobrovsky stars in goal

Everybody said that it would be better if the Columbus Blue Jackets played in the Eastern Conference.

The CBJ seems to matchup better with those teams and usually had good overall records against most of the teams.

Well, the Jackets have proven everybody right.

After beating Toronto last night, 2-1 the Blue Jackets have an overall record of 31-25-5 with 67 points. They sit 5th in the tough Metropolitan Conference and 10th in the Eastern Conference. They are just 1 point behind the Washington Capitals and Detroit Red Wings for the 8th and final playoff spot.

Columbus, who won the season’s series against Toronto, dominated the final two periods Monday night to win the game before a disappointed crowd of 19,577 at the Air Canada Centre.

The goal scorers were Artem Anisimov and Dalton Prout. Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky almost captured his seventh career shutout but did stop 28 shots.

The Maple Leafs scored at the 15:45 mark of the 3rd period on Mason Raymond’s 17th goal of the season.

The CBJ return home tonight to play the Dallas Stars of the Western Conference at 7 pm.

 

Blue Jackets road woes end with 3-2 win in Toronto

The Columbus Blue Jackets played before about 250 uncles, aunts, cousins, mothers, brothers and sisters when they played in Toronto.

It must’ve helped the Ontario-born players because the Jackets beat the Maple Leafs, 3-2 at the Air Canada Centre.

Kristian Huselius scored two goals, R.J. Umberger deflected in a third-period power-play game-winning goal and Steve Mason, in one of his best performances, made 20 saves.

The family contingents saw the Blue Jackets’ seven-game road losing streak 0-5-2 end.

Columbus fought back from deficits of 1-0 and 2-1 to claw back and take their first lead in a road game since November 28 at Detroit. If you must know, that was 440 minutes and 27 seconds of hockey ago, a monumental burden on a young team.

GAME NOTES

* The three stars of the game:

Kristian Huselius LW, with two goals.

Rick Nash, RW, Two more assists.

Steve Mason, Goalie, Showed  a ton of poise.


No Shaq, No Bosh, Cavs and Raptors play an old ABA-style game

Friday night’s game in Toronto between the Cavaliers and the Raptors was missing two All-Star centers, Shaquille O’Neal (sprained right thumb) and Chris Bosh (left ankle). You probably thought both teams would have trouble scoring?

Not exactly! Both teams ran up and down the floor like it was a game from the old ABA days with the red, white and blue ball to the tune of a 126-118 score. Plus, the game went into overtime.

The lowlight for the Cavaliers was the fact that they gave up 50 points in the paint. But the saving grace was their free throw shooting, 31 of 36 and the two stars of the game, LeBron James and newly-acquired forward, Antwan Jamison. James scored 36 points, grabbed 6 rebounds and dished out 9 assists. Jamison, playing out of position at center in overtime, scored 22 with 11 rebounds.

Speaking of overtime, Cleveland outscored Toronto, 15-7  much to the dismay of the raucus crowd at the Air Canada Centre. Mo Williams made back-to-back 3-pointers in overtime and finished with 22 points. Delonte West contributed 15 points for the Cavs, which won its third straight.

Toronto, who is always tough on the Cavs, were led by Jarrett Jack and Andrea Bargnani each scored 24 points, while Hedo Turkoglu had 18 before fouling out in overtime. Cleveland has won 15 of their past 18 meetings with the Raptors.

Cleveland led 105-98 with 3:39 to go, but Bargnani hit a jumper, Turkoglu made a layup and Antione Wright made a pair of free throws to cut it to 105-104, with 2:12 remaining. LeBron James ended the run with two free throws but Turkoglu tied it at 107 with a 3-pointer from the wing, then gave the Raptors a 109-107 lead with a rebound-dunk on Jarrett Jack’s missed layup with 50.6 seconds remaining.

James made a layup to tie it and Jack made two free throws but LeBron answered with yet another driving layup, making it 111-111 with 13 seconds left.

Both teams missed 3-point shots inside the last 2 seconds of the game to send it into overtime.

After playing all game with no defense, The Cavs suddenly found it in overtime and it helped key the run to close out the game. Mo Williams made 3-pointers on Cleveland’s first two possessions in overtime and Toronto never challenged again, as they shot 1 of 8 in the extra session.
