COLUMBUS, O. — The Los Angeles Kings on paper would appear to be one of the best teams in the National Hockey League.

At times they seem unbeatable. Other times they play inconsistent hockey, can’t string together two victories.

Just when people count them out as done for a season, the Kings emerge into the playoffs and a serious Stanley Cup contender. Proof, they have won two of the last three Cups.

Tuesday night, the Blue Jackets learned that the Kings came to play and would not be denied a win.

LA’s top line of Dwight King, Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli all scored goals en route to a 4-3 win before a crowd of 14,703 at Nationwide Arena. That line shot the puck a total of 10 times.

The Blue Jackets led briefly 1-0 on a goal by Jack Skille at 1:40 of the first period.

But the Kings had an answer everytime the Jackets got close on the scoreboard.

One bright spot in the game for Columbus was LW Scott Hartnell played in his 1,000th career NHL game. Only 27 current active players and 297 overall have ever achieved this honor in the game’s history. It was only fitting that Hartnell scored a goal in the contest.

Also scoring in the game were LA’s Dustin Brown and the CBJ’s David Savard.

Umberger’s hat trick, penalty-kill, Mason’s goaltending fuels 5-1 win over Carolina

COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets showed Friday night in their 5-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, how good they can be as a team.

They dominated the game from the outset and received excellent work between the pipes by goaltender Steve Mason, a solid penalty-kill and a hat trick from R.J. Umberger.

Coming into Friday’s matchup with one of the NHL’s worst teams in the Blue Jackets, Carolina at 30-29-15, 75 points on the season, are trying to chase down the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference from Buffalo or Washington.

But with only seven games remaining, the defeat was a costly one for the Hurricanes who are 11th in the East race, fell seven points behind the eight spot.

They should’ve known the Blue Jackets have been tough on playoff-caliber teams since Todd Richards took over for the unpopular Scott Arniel on January 9.

R.J. Umberger has had an up-and-down season, but he is one of the team’s most popular players due to the fact that he is an Ohio State hockey product and he gives his all whether the team is winning or losing and he wants to be a part of the franchise when things turn upward.

But March 23 became Umberger’s day with three goals for the second time in his Jackets career, third overall to fuel the team’s 24th win of the season.

Other heroes included Vinny Prospal with a goal and assist, Steve Mason, who has won six of his last eight starts, stopped 39 shots in goal against a good Carolina lineup featuring Eric Staal, Tuomo Ruutu, Jeff Skinner, Brandon Sutter, Jiri Tlusty and Jussi Jokinen.

Derick Brassard assisted on each of Umberger’s goals, while Nikita Nikitin and Jack Johnson garnered two assists. Johnson also earned his 100th assist of his career.

The key part of the game was the start of the third period when the Blue Jackets killed off a 5-on-3 penalty-kill leading 3-1. The Hurricanes did not score and that was the game.

Carolina goaltender Cam Ward looked lost all night as the Jackets scored five goals on 26 shots.

GAME NOTES

* Columbus has won two of its last three games after dropping the four previous games.

* The hat trick scored by R.J. Umberger was the third this season and 22nd in the franchise’s history. The now-traded and unpopular Jeff Carter had the other two.

* Columbus scored the first goal of the game for the 34th time this season. The team is 18-12-4 in those games. When leading after the first period they are 13-2-1 and 18-6-2 leading after two periods.

* The Blue Jackets are7-6-0 all-time vs. Carolina, 4-2-0 at Nationwide Arena. Overall, the Jackets have won five straight games vs. the Hurricanes.

* Goalie Steve Mason is 4-0-0 with a 1.50 goals-against average and a .952 save percentage in four games against Carolina.

COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS Post-Game Summary: Anaheim 5 Columbus 3

 

Anaheim Ducks Right Wing Corey Perry is a Blue Jackets killer!

In Sunday night’s fourth and final meeting of the season between the two teams, Perry scored his 24, 25 and 26 goals of the season and a hat trick in leading the Ducks to a 5-3 win over the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena before a crowd of 14,043.

The NHL’s MVP from last season, scored his second hat trick of the season (both against Columbus) in a one month span.

He scored just :46 seconds into the game and added another before the end of the first period to put the Ducks up 2-0.

His third goal came in the second period and he almost had a fourth goal in the third, but CBJ goalie Steve Mason stopped him cold with a good save.

In January, the 6’3, 203-pound Perry scored a hat trick at the Honda Center against Columbus. He is the first player to score a hat trick against Columbus in the same season.

GAME NOTES:

* Defenseman Fedor Tyutin snapped an 18-game goalless skid with his fourth of the season tonight. He had last scored Dec. 29 at Dallas. He is now tied for the team lead among defensemen in goals with Grant Clitsome. He later added an assist for second multi-point game in the last three outings. He has points in three of the last four games (1-4-5) after being held pointless the previous nine games. In 298 games with the Blue Jackets, he has tallied 26-91-117 compared to 15-52-67 in 251 games with the NY Rangers. In 18 career games against Anaheim, he has 4-8-12.

* Center Jeff Carter collected his first assist in seven games with a helper on Tyutin’s goal. He last had an assist Dec. 31 vs. Washington. He has points in three of the last five games (2-1-3) after being held to 0-1-1 the previous seven games. He has recorded 2-3-5 in eight career games against the Ducks.

* LW Vinny Prospal has points in five of the last six games after picking up an assist on Tyutin’s goal. He has 1-4-5 during that stretch after being held pointless the previous nine games. In 17 career games against the Ducks, he has collected 5-10-15.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are not having the season that they envisioned several months ago with all of the acquisitions of free agents and the the trades they made.

But the bad season is not slowing down the turnstiles.

The Blue Jackets have seen the largest increase in attendance of 7.8 in the Western Conference this season. The increase is according to Sports Business Journal.

The increase is the result of the off-season acquisitions of Jeff Carter and James Wisniewski that had the fan base excited to get the season started.
