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.

BOSTON GAME NOTES:

* 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.

COLUMBUS GAME NOTES:

* The Blue Jackets recalled C Ryan Craig from the AHL’s Springfield FalconsĀ  before the game but he was a healthy scratch.

* Columbus F Nick Foligno played in his 400th NHL game.

* The Blue Jackets were without LW Matt Calvert (lower body) and lost LW Blake Comeau (lower body) in the second period.

 


Crawford fired by Dallas for missing playoffs

The Dallas Stars under head coach Marc Crawford, earned 95 points, the most of any team that did not make the playoffs. A good team but with no playoffs, Crawford is out of a job.

According to NHL records, the 95 points equaled the effort of the 2006-2007 Colorado Avalanche for the most of any non-playoff team.

Crawford took the Stars to the cusp of a playoff bid into the last few games of this season, but general manager Joe Nieuwendyk felt a change was needed because in two seasons at the helm and no playoffs was enough.

Nieuwendyk also felt that with Brad Richards, Jamie Benn, Loui Eriksson, Kari Lehtonen, Mike Ribeiro and Brenden Morrow, there was no reason not to make the playoffs. Rumors amongst the media out of Dallas all season, said that Nieuwendyk also did like the fact that Crawford played his best players on longer shifts which tired them out during the stretch run for the playoffs.

 

Mike Modano contemplating retirement or a 21st season in Dallas.

compiled by staff and wire reports

Mike Modano of the Dallas Stars has spent the recent hockey season wondering if he should keep playing or should he retire.

It’s been a week since he completed his 20th full NHL season, and with his contract with the Stars ending, Modano has said the he plans to take some time before decidingĀ  his future. He is also part of a group seeking ownership of the Stars, who are being sold by ThomasĀ  Hicks’ financially challenged Hicks Sports Group.

The Stars missed the playoffs for the second season in a row, the first time that has happened since relocating from Minnesota 17 years ago.

Last summer, Mike Modano needed only a month to decide to come back for a 20th season, but this time there is no guaranteed contract for him.

This time around, he doesn’t have a contract for next season and has not spoken with general manager and former teammate Joe Nieuwendyk about a new one.

Mike Modano (nhl)

The number 1 overall draft pick by the Minnesota North Stars in 1988, Modano was the last player remaining on the Stars from when the team moved south to Dallas.

In 1,459 career games, Modano has 557 points and 802 assists for 1,359 points, all team records. He had 14 goals and 16 assists this season.

But at his age, Mike Modano is not expected to be Dallas’ primary scorer anymore. Brad Richards was seventh in the NHL with 91 points, and players like Loui Eriksson and Mike Ribeiro are capable of scoring as well.
