On Sunday night against the Minnesota Wild, a 3-0 loss, the Columbus Blue Jackets were scrambling all over the ice without any speed or energy and their NHL playoff hopes looked very dim.

But on Tuesday night, they regained their step and energy and routed for the second time this season, the San Jose Sharks, 4-0. The crowd of 17,771 at Nationwide Arena did not know what to expect after Sunday’s debacle, but they saw the CBJ win convincingly.

Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky turned the magic again and stopped all 30 shots, preserving his fourth shutout.

The goal scorers included James Wisniewski, Ryan Johansen, Matt Calvert and Marian Gaborik, providing Columbus to move closer to eighth-place Detroit in the Western Conference by two points.

The Jackets have played San Jose twice in Columbus this season and has won two games by an aggregate score of 10-2 (6-2, 4-0).


* Sergei Bobrovsky, Goalie, CBJ: Showed why he is up for the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender.

* Marian Gaborik, LW, CBJ: The team’s new Rick Nash scored a goal and an assist.

* Matt Calvert, LW, CBJ: Set the game’s tone with the first goal of the game using his speed.

The Jesse Owens Spring Game honoring America’s finest is this afternoon, Saturday, April 23, 2011, as the Ohio State football team holds its annual spring scrimmage, presented by Nationwide, at Ohio Stadium.

The football game will be an offense vs. defense format, with both units battling for the right to wear scarlet jerseys for August practice.

The Ohio State men’s lacrosse team will host Fairfield in an ECAC Lacrosse League game at 11 a.m. in the first portion of the doubleheader, with the football scrimmage starting at 1:30 p.m.

In the football scrimmage, the ball will be put in play at various spots to create a variety of game-like situations. Each drill will consist of 3-6 scripted plays. If the offense sustains its drive on the first possession, it will be allowed to continue the drive beyond the scripted plays to its conclusion.

However, if the first drive is stopped and the offense starts over, the drive will end on the prescribed play no matter where the ball is located. Penalties will be assessed and will not count as a play if accepted. If the penalty is declined, the play will count.

Points can be scored by both the offense and defense according to predetermined values for first downs, turnovers, long plays, etc.

Ohio State will be recognizing members of Jesse Owens’ family, Buckeye football All-Americans, active military and veterans groups will be recognized. OSU coaches will wear military caps and the football team will be wearing special helmets painted in silver, gray and black camaflouge pattern. Each helmet will feature an American flag decal on the front and a Jesse Owens commemorative decal on the back, along with decals in memory of Jake Nickle, an OSU weight room volunteer, and Colleen Dobbins, daughter of assistant men’s lacrosse coach Dave Dobbins.

Busch holds off Edwards, Harvick to win Fontana Nationwide race


Kyle Busch (file photo)


Kyle Busch’s pit strategy late in the Nationwide race at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, allowed him to take the lead and hold off Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick to win the race.

Edwards and Harvick traded leads for most of the 150-lap race before deciding to get four tires on their final pit stop with less than 20 laps left.

Busch, however, waited until only 13 laps to go, and decided to get two tires, putting him ahead after leaving pit road.

Busch survived a final-lap bump into the wall, to win for the fifth time in his past six races at Fontana.

Busch, one of NASCAR’S controversial and volatile drivers, won at Bristol last week, has won three of five Nationwide races and has 46 wins in his career, two behind Mark Martin on the all-time list.

Kyle Busch wins finale NASCAR Trucks race of the season

Kyle Busch has had success this season as a driver/owner in the NASCAR Truck series. But sponsorship dollars haven’t been forthcoming for the 2011 season for him to continue as the owner.

Busch took the lead from Ron Hornaday Jr. on a restart with four laps to go, then ran away for the win.

The dash by Busch, came after a crash to win the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, taking his series-high eighth win of the season in only 16 starts. He won the owners’ title for the first-year team that he owns himself.
