COLUMBUS, OHIO — Usually when the Columbus Blue Jackets have to depend on a play behind reversed by the NHL’s video replay officials in Toronto, its usually bad news. But on Tuesday night, they got the call that all 12,245 fans in Nationwide Arena thought when the play occured, NO GOAL!

It was the final 1.8 seconds of the game and the St. Louis Blues were trying to tie the game up at 2-2.

Blue left winger David Perron scored on the play when he fell down and lost his stick and pushed the puck past CBJ goalie Steve Mason who he was laying on top of and the red lamp behind the goal was lit and the official gave the goal sign.

But the video replay showed that it was not a goal and the Blue Jackets, who have been playing well this month, beat the team they have trouble with, St. Louis, 2-1.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are playing well under interim head coach Todd Richards.

The team seems to be responding to his techniques and instruction. That could not be said for fired coach Scott Arniel, who ended up blaming the media for the team’s troubles in his final month with the team.

On Tuesday night, the Jackets were down 2-0 to the Edmonton Oilers, just 8:50 into the game and Richards called a timeout to just give the team a breather and to remind them the game is not won or lost in the opening period.

In the past under Arniel, this team did not have rallies to win, but under the more experienced Richards, they have the capability and they did.

The Blue Jackets beat the Oilers 4-2 in Nationwide Arena before a nice crowd of 13,814.

For the first time all year, covering 45 games, the Jackets rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win.

Curtis Sanford was the winning goaltender, stopping 21 of 23 shots for Columbus.

The goal scorers included Ryan Johansen and the 3 Derricks (all different spellings), Derick Brassard, Derek MacKenzie and Derek Dorsett.

The 3 stars of the game were MacKenzie, Dorsett and Brassard.
