Stuart has also played for Boston, Calgary and the Kings.

Stuart is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. The Sharks management feel that they can sign him to a new contract this month.

Usually when the Columbus Blue Jackets play at Joe Louis Arena, it means disaster.

Friday night, however, the Jackets played another solid game against Detroit and have picked up 5 points in three games this season against the team from Motown.

Steve Mason, who has been up-and-down since his rookie season, turned in a 34-save performance that shut down Detroit attack. Mason now has 17 career shutouts.

Columbus beat the Red Wings 3-0 in front of 20,066. It was the Blue Jackets first shutout win in Joe Louis Arena and their first win in the venerable Arena since March 7, 2009.

Antoine Vermette, Jared Boll and Andrew Murray scored goals for Jackets, who killed off all six Detroit power-plays including a 5-on-3 late in the second period.

Three Stars of the game: All Blue Jackets, Goalie Steve Mason, Center Antoine Vermette and Left winger Matt Calvert.

Blue Jackets play well in beating Minnesota in shootout, 4-3


COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Columbus Blue Jackets made a complete turnaround from their 4-1 debacle at Chicago on Sunday in Chicago, giving up three goals in the third period.

The next game was against the Minnesota Wild, the Blue Jackets expansion-bretheran from 2000, and head coach Scott Arniel decided to shake up the lineup by sitting out regulars Jake Voracek, Derek Dorsett and Rostislav Klesla, all healthy scratches.

Arniel also did the unthinkable, starting  shaky Steve Mason in goal. Mason was his old rookie of the year self as he made several clutch saves throughout the game, 37 all told, in leading the Jackets to the victory. It was only his second win since November 22.

The Jackets received goals from Derick Brassard, Fedor Tyutin and Andrew Murray in regulation as they rallied from deficits of 1-0 and 2-1. The goals by Tyutin and Murray were scored just :41 seconds apart in the third period and put them up 3-2.

In the shootout, an area where the Blue Jackets usually struggle, they excelled as Rick Nash, Kyle Wilson and Kristian Huselius all scored to seal the win.

The three stars of the game:

Steve Mason, Columbus goalie.

Rick Nash, Columbus left winger, two assists.

Chuck Kobasew, Minnesota left winger, One goal, one assist, a plus-2 rating.

Red Wings win seventh in a row beating Columbus, 3-2

compiled by staff

Tomas Holmstom, Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi scored goals for Detroit, who held off  Columbus, 3-2 in the Motor City on Thursday night for their season-high seventh victory.

Goalie Jimmy Howard made 20 saves for Detroit, who is 14-2-1 in its last 17 games.

Andrew Murray and R.J. Umberger lit the lamp for Columbus and Steve Mason stopped 29 shots.

Bertuzzi made the score 3-1, 1:13 into the third period.  Henrik Zetterberg”s pass went in off the right skate of Bertuzzi, who was skating through the crease and the replays showed he appeared to make a kicking motion with heel to direct the puck into the net.  It was originally waved off. But it went to video replay and the call was reversed for Bertuzzi’s  18th goal.

*Jimmy Howard was the NHL’s Rookie of the Month for March.  It was also his 24th consecutive start, the most successive starts by a Detroit rookie goalie since Glenn Hall started all 70 games in 155-56. The stretch also is the most consecutive games started by any Detroit goalie since Tim Cheveldae’s 29 in 1991-92.
