COLUMBUS, O. – The Columbus Blue Jackets matched the physical style of the Boston Bruins. But Boston showed how a championship caliber team can separate itself in a close game and outplayed Columbus in the third period to win 3-1 Saturday afternoon.

With the loss, the Blue Jackets, new to the NHL’s Eastern Conference, are 0-2 at home. Both of their wins have come on the road.

The game-winning goal was scored by Loui Eriksson, his first with the Bruins.

Eriksson, acquired last summer in the big trade that sent Tyler Seguin to Dallas, scored 150 goals for the Stars. He started the season scoreless in three games for the Bruins.

Starring for the Blue Jackets were Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky and Defenseman Jack Johnson. Johnson scored on a first-period power play.

Bobrovsky, last season’s Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL’s top goalie, stopped 33 shots.


* Claude Julien coached in his 700th NHL game (378-233-10-79).

* Both teams will face Detroit in their next game. The Bruins will host the Red Wings on Monday, and the Blue Jackets will play at Joe Louis Arena on Tuesday.

* The meeting was the first of three between the teams this season – the only one in Columbus.

* Boston’s Johnny Boychuk left after blocking a shot in the third period, but he returned.

The Detroit Red Wings continue to crank out the wins at venerable Joe Louis Arena,

On Sunday night, the Red Wings beat Philadelphia 4-3 to tie the NHL record for consecutive wins at home with 20.

Johan Franzen scored the winning goal in the third period. It was his 10th game-winning goal which leads the NHL.

The National Hockey League was set by the Boston Bruins during the 1929-30 season and also matched the Philadelphia record in 1976.

The Red Wings will have a chance to break the league record on Tuesday night when they host the Dallas Stars at Joe Louis Arena.

Detroit’s longtime captain and defenseman, Nicklas Lidstrom played in his 1,550th game, the most by an NHL player who has spent his entire career with one team. He broke the mark set by former Detroit hockey great Alex Delvecchio.

The Columbus Blue Jackets wanted to accomplish several things on Saturday night against the Edmonton Oilers.

One, the CBJ wanted to continue the momentum they acquired on Friday night with a 3-0 shocking win over Detroit at Joe Louis Arena.

Second, it was Geoff Sanderson night, who was an early star in the early days of the 10-year history of the franchise.

Third, they were playing one of the worst teams in the NHL and did not want to lose two important points.

The Blue Jackets got down 2-0 in the first period on goals by Magnus Paajarvi and Dustin Penner.

R.J. Umberger started the comeback with his first goal of the game in the opening period, at the 14:19 mark and it was 2-1.

Columbus had a nice second period where they dominated play and Kristian Huselius scored his 10th goal of the season on a rebound shot at 14:35 and the game was 2-2.

In the third period, Paajarvi scored his second goal of the game at the 5:31 mark on a wide-open shot and it was 3-2 Edmonton.

Columbus was not going to be denied. Umberger scored his second goal of the night, number 19 of the season at 13:44 and it was a tie game at 3-3.

Then Huselius came in on a 1-on-1 rush and scored his second goal of the game, 11th of the season at the 16:00 mark and the Jackets had won back-to-back games.

Three Stars of the game were: R.J. Umberger, Blue Jackets RW, two goals, two assists. Kristian Huselius, LW, Blue Jackets, two assists after being benched. Magnus Paajarvi, LW, Oilers, scored twice on open shots.

Usually when the Columbus Blue Jackets play at Joe Louis Arena, it means disaster.

Friday night, however, the Jackets played another solid game against Detroit and have picked up 5 points in three games this season against the team from Motown.

Steve Mason, who has been up-and-down since his rookie season, turned in a 34-save performance that shut down Detroit attack. Mason now has 17 career shutouts.

Columbus beat the Red Wings 3-0 in front of 20,066. It was the Blue Jackets first shutout win in Joe Louis Arena and their first win in the venerable Arena since March 7, 2009.

Antoine Vermette, Jared Boll and Andrew Murray scored goals for Jackets, who killed off all six Detroit power-plays including a 5-on-3 late in the second period.

Three Stars of the game: All Blue Jackets, Goalie Steve Mason, Center Antoine Vermette and Left winger Matt Calvert.

Blue Jackets lose again to Red Wings

We’ve all gotten used to the fact after 10 years, that when the Detroit Red Wings play the Columbus Blue Jackets that the team up North does everything right and the team down South gets schooled and outplayed.

Such was the case this past weekend when the Blue Jackets came into the 2-game series with the same amount of points as the Red Wings, 28.

They could split the two games and end up with 31 points each.

But the Red Wings had other ideas, like taking all six points to get to 34 and leave the Blue Jackets still sitting on 28.

The second loss was a 4-2 decision in Joe Louis Arena in downtown Detroit before 18,860 fans.

The Blue Jackets have learned that Detroit can change a game quickly and take over completely and there’s nothing the opposition can do about it.

Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger scored for the Jackets. Goaltender Steve Mason was under constant pressure all night and finished with 38 saves.
