COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Tampa Bay Lightning scored quick in the first period against Columbus on Saturday night and hung on for the entire third period.

Blair Jones and Eric Brewer scored in the opening period and Steve Stamkos scored in the second period as the Lightning won 3-2.

Former Jacket goalie Mathieu Garon stopped 26 shots and made a triumphant return to Nationwide Arena.

Stamkos, who entered the game tied for the NHL lead with 19 goals with Milan Michalek of Ottawa, put up the game-winner, his 20th.

The Jackets momentarily came back in the second period to tie the game at 2-2 with goals from R.J. Umberger and Rick Nash, and Vinny Prospal provided two assists.


* Before the game, Prospal was honored by the Blue Jackets for becoming the 268th player to play in 1,000 NHL games. He reached the mark against Buffalo on November 25.

* Umberger’s scored his 8oth goal with Columbus. He is eight shy of tying Geoff Sanderson for third on the franchise’s career list.

* Derek Dorsett returned to the ice for the Blue Jackets after missing two games for a problem with his left lower leg, following a collision with Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas last week.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have hired Ian Clark as their new goaltending coach.

Clark most recently was the goaltending and consultant coach for the Vancouver Canucks from 2002-2010.

In addition to spending eight years with the Canucks organization, Clark was a member of Team Canada’s coaching staff at the World Junior Championships from 2003-2006, winning silver medals in 2003 and 2004 and capturing gold in 2005 and 2006. He also was the goaltending consultant for the Florida Panthers in 2001-2002. The list of goaltenders he has tutored includes Mathieu Garon, Johan Hedberg, Andrew Raycroft, Cory Schneider, Marc-Andre Fleury, Roberto Luongo and Cam Ward.

Clark was born on May 12, 1966 in Vancouver, British Columbia. He and his wife, Deborah, are the parents of sons, Morgan, Christopher, Collins, Samuel, Jason and Blake.

The 45-year-old Clark, is recognized as a leading educator of the goaltending position as his knowledge and innovative approach has attracted high-performance goaltenders at the NHL, minor pro, major junior and NCAA levels. He was the founder of the Goaltender Development Institute and served as technical author of From the Crease-The Self Development Guide to Hockey Goaltending from 1998-2003 and The Goalie News from 2003-2008.

Goaltending coach Dave Rook knew his contract with the Blue Jackets was ending on June 30. He also knew that with Steve Mason and Mathieu Garon’s save percentage of a combined .898 was 29th in the NHL.

Before his season-ending meeting with the front office ever took place, Rook resigned saying he has spent too much time away from his family in London, Ontario, Canada.

The word around the Columbus camp is that the team wants a full-time goaltender coach and Rook was not willing to do that.

The Columbus Blue Jackets played against the St. Louis Blues as if they can’t wait for the off-season to began. They’re listless play angered the pay customers who are tired of their up-and-down play.

The 6-1 loss in Nationwide Arena could’ve been worse and the 13,538 fans who stomached the game probably would agree.

Blue Jackets backup goaltender Mathieu Garon gave up four goals on 21 shots and two of those goals could’ve been stopped by a beginning goaltender. He was pulled after two periods for David LeNeveu, a 27-year-old minor-leaguer who hadn’t played in the NHL since 2006, played the entire third period.

The only Blue Jackets goal came from R.J. Umberger, who pulled them to within 2-1 with 51.3 seconds remaining in the first period. Umberger played in his 243rd consecutive game for the Blue Jackets, matching Jason Chimera’s franchise record.

The Three Stars of the Game were all St. Louis Blues: Patrik Berglund, Alexander Steen and Matt D’Agostini.

Blackhawks escape Jackets in shootout, 4-3

Columbus Blue Jackets head coach Scott Arniel told the media during the post-game press conference , when asked about his team playing 18 games past regulation into overtime or a shootout, what does that say about his team, how close are they to the playoffs or how far they are away. His answer was “we’re getting closer, we can work on being able to win those games by working on the skills necessary to do so.”
