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.
