The Blues simply have the Blue Jackets number

COLUMBUS, O. — The theme of the Columbus Blue Jackets thus far this season is S-L-O-W  S-T-A-R-T-S and head coach Todd Richards blasted the team earlier in the week in a loss at Minnesota.

So in Thursday’s home game against Central Division rival St. Louis, you’d expect a great game from the team against a hated rival?

The team did the opposite, again!

After playing well for the first three shifts of the game, the Blue Jackets found themselves trailing again 1-0 at the 2:19 mark as Blues defenseman Barret Jackman used screens by his teammates to float a puck past goalie Sergei Bobrovsky from the blueline.

St. Louis was not done yet.

Center Patrik Berglund scored at 10:23 on a power-play goal for a 2-0 advantage and Bobrovsky’s night was done when rookie right winger Vladimir Tarasenko scored a goal while falling backwards after running into CBJ defenseman James Wisniewski. An upset Richards had seen enough, as he put it in the postgame, “Sergei has to get better and I wanted to shock the team by switching goaltenders.”

Entering the game was Steve Mason, who the fans are lukewarm with due to his past failures, but on this night, he was a hero playing solid and confident stopping all 13 shots by the Blues.

The fourth goal by the Blues was scored by right winger David Backes, an empty-netter with 21 seconds to go.

Derick Brassard scored the Blue Jackets only goal

CBJ center Derick Brassard scored the lone CBJ goal on a power-play at 16;51 of the second period to make the score 3-1. The team could not get anything else past goalie Brian Elliott who always seems to beat Columbus as a backup goaltender.

The game had a common thread, the Blue Jackets lost to the Blues again, going 8-2 in the last 10, 5-2-0 at Nationwide Arena, 5-2-0 in the past 7 in Columbus and overall 31-25-13.

The game had several fights which are common in division games with several players getting game misconducts, Jared Boll of Columbus and Ryan Reaves of St. Louis.

Barret Jackman, one of the Blues' leaders got the team off to a good start on Thursday night

The crowd of 11,155 fans went left the arena unhappy again with the Blue Jackets dropping another home game.

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM STARS OF THE GAME:

*Barret Jackman, D, Blues: Got his team off to a good start in a road contest early.

*Brian Elliott, G, Blues: Survived on 25 shots allowing only one goal, but the CBJ kept him undersieged.

*Steve Mason, G, Blue Jackets: Looked quick in goal and confident. The only real bright spot from the game for the home team.

Voracek comes back from 2-game benching to lead Blue Jackets to OT win

Jakub Voracek had been a healthy scratch the previous two hockey games. In the world of hockey, a healthy scratch means a benching by the coach for various reasons: not playing defense, not checking, not playing with intensity, not scoring goals. In other words, its a chance to clear a players mind and get re-energized and get motivated again.

Whatever the case, Voracek made a nice return to the lineup .

He basically rescued Columbus from a complete collapse after dominating the game from the start. He scored the overtime goal in a 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators in Nationwide Arena.

A crowd of 17,652 fans saw the Jackets in a familiar scene, blowing a 3-0 lead before being led to the win by Steve Mason and Vorcek in overtime.

Mason made several stops especially on Alex Kovalev and Peter Regin as the Senators kept charging the net in the third period and overtime. They outshot the Blue Jackets 38-23, including 16 to 7 after the second period.

But Voracek did not want to disappoint the huge New Year’s Eve crowd. He pounced on the puck after a Kovalev turnover behind the Ottawa goal and stuffed home the game-winner between the pads of goaltender Brian Elliott at 2:06 of overtime. The win gave the Blue Jackets three wins in a row, all with Mason back in the net.

Columbus built up a 3-0 lead on goals from R.J. Umberger, Sammy Pahlsson and Rick Nash.

The Blue Jackets are now 2-6 on Friday and 2-5 wearing their new third jerseys.

THREE STARS OF THE GAME
