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.

Blue Jackets shake off bad loss to Calgary; rally stuns Blackhawks (Saturday)

If the Blue Jackets keep following up bad losses with a big win over teams people say they can’t beat, its going to be a long, long season.

On Friday, they had a very bad loss to Calgary, but rallies from two goals down to beat the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center in Chicago.

The 3-2 win stunned the 20,265 in attendance.

R.J. Umberger, Derick Brassard and Antione Vermette scored the Columbus goals while Marc Methot collected two saves and goaltender Steve Mason stopped 30 shots.

Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash had a 20-minute team meeting and said it was a look-at-yourself-in-the-mirror session.

The key point in the game came late in the second period with the Blackhawks up 2-0 and looking like they were cruising to another win over Columbus.

With 35.7 seconds left, Brassard picked up the puck after Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford had blocked aside a shot by Jakub Voracek. Brassard knocked in the rebound for his first goal of the season.

On the faceoff after the goal, Columbus’ Fedor Tyutin was pasted face-first into the boards by the Blue Jackets bench by Chicago’s Troy Brouwer. That vicious check sent Tyutin to the ice, grabbing his neck in pain. Brouwer was given a five-minute major and in that time frame, the Blue Jackets grabbed the momentum with the long power play which carried over into the third period.

The third period had barely begun, 1:33 to be exact, Tyutin put a shot on goal that glanced off of Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson before R.J. Umberger knocked the rebound past Crawford and just like that, it was 2-2.

At the 6:29 mark, Methot shot a puck inside the blue line and shot a slap shot that Vermette redirected past a stunned Crawford and that was your game-winner.

The Blue Jackets had a nice third period putting 20 shots on goal and finished the night with a season-high 40.

Surprisingly, Columbus is 3-0 on the road and 4-3 overall.
