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.

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Tampa Bay Lightning scored quick in the first period against Columbus on Saturday night and hung on for the entire third period.

Blair Jones and Eric Brewer scored in the opening period and Steve Stamkos scored in the second period as the Lightning won 3-2.

Former Jacket goalie Mathieu Garon stopped 26 shots and made a triumphant return to Nationwide Arena.

Stamkos, who entered the game tied for the NHL lead with 19 goals with Milan Michalek of Ottawa, put up the game-winner, his 20th.

The Jackets momentarily came back in the second period to tie the game at 2-2 with goals from R.J. Umberger and Rick Nash, and Vinny Prospal provided two assists.


* Before the game, Prospal was honored by the Blue Jackets for becoming the 268th player to play in 1,000 NHL games. He reached the mark against Buffalo on November 25.

* Umberger’s scored his 8oth goal with Columbus. He is eight shy of tying Geoff Sanderson for third on the franchise’s career list.

* Derek Dorsett returned to the ice for the Blue Jackets after missing two games for a problem with his left lower leg, following a collision with Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas last week.

There had been rumors swirling since the current NHL season began that the Columbus Blue Jackets were going to bring back their all-time winningest coach Ken Hitchcock and put him behind the bench to replace Scott Arniel.

Well, the Jackets continue to have patience, but eight hours away on Interstate 70 West, their Central Division rivals, the St. Louis Blues ran of time and patience with head coach Davis Payne.

Payne was fired on Sunday night and Ken Hitchcock was hired to replace him. The Blues pulled the trigger to save their season, while the Jackets continue to wait.

Hitchcock won 125 games with Columbus and is 14th all-time in NHL coaching wins with 533.

The Blues are playing better than Columbus, but a 6-7-0 start is not pleasing for one of the NHL’s most-storied franchises.

They received permission to interview Hitchcock over the weekend and hired him immediately. They have agreed to pay the $1.33 million remaining on his Columbus contract and will give him an extension.
