Again, it was the stellar play of goaltender Allen York with 30 saves and the defensive effort on the penalty-kill that sealed the game for Columbus.

The Jackets received goals from R.J. Umberger (16,17) and Nikita Nikitin (6,7) in the win.

The Blue Jackets saluted the 20th anniversary of the Columbus Chill, who were established in 1991. The fans still love the Chill as they were all sorts of caps, jerseys, jackets worn throughout the arena.

The game had a nice, enthusiastic crowd for a Friday night of 17, 944.

FLORIDA GAME NOTES:

* The Panthers are fighting for a playoff spot with 90 points and a 37-25-16 record.

* They are coached by former original Blue Jackets star, Kevin Dineen, who many feel, fans and media, should’ve been hired as head coach here when the team hired Scott Arniel.

* Dineen received a nice ovation from the fans as he was being recognized during the game. The fans always liked his all-out, hard-nosed play.

* The Panthers are vying for their first playoff berth in 12 years (2000).

* The team has the 10th-best power play in the NHL.

* One negative stat on Florida, is they lead the NHL in bench minors with 16, which includes two Friday night of too many men on the ice. Dineen says that is his fault and they have to clean it up.

* One of the reasons why Florida is so good, is they’ve picked up players who were stars elsewhere: Scottie Upshall, Mikael Samuelsson, Brian Campbell, Tomas Kopecky and Ed Jovanovski.

Northland Vikings continue to dominate the City League`

This past weekend, Columbus Northland wrapped up their fourth straight City league title with a victory over Marion-Franklin, 65-52 at East High School.

Everybody talks about dynasty, legacy and men among boys when Northland’s team is being discussed these days. There are still five weeks left in the basketball season and it remains to be seen if this team can defend their Division I championship.

The two big-name leaders of this team is Jared Sullinger and J.D. Weatherspoon have been a part of this dynasty all four years, winning those four unprecedented City League titles. If you count City League records in the North Division and City Championship games, the Ohio State-bound dynamic duo were part of teams which piled up a record of 59-0.

One wonders how this team will stack up to other Columbus City League basketball programs in years past.

The senior class from Columbus East led by Ed Ratleff, Dwight “Bo” Lamar and Nick Connor that won back-to-back state championships in 1968 and ’69 finished with a 71-1 slate. But those accomplishments cover only three seasons because ninth-graders were not permitted to play varsity during those seasons. Although the Tigers went undefeated in the City League from 1966 to ’69, they lost fellow City rival and eventual state champion Linden in the 1967 regional final.

Brookhaven also set standards of excellence with 12 City North titles and a 159-14 league record from 1995-2006, including six straight City championships. The fifth, was given to them by default after Africentric forfeited 27 wins, including a win over Brookhaven in the championship game.

In the win over Marion-Franklin, 19-0 Northland received the best shot from the determined Red Devils, but their height, athleticism, depth, patience and talent was too much to overcome.

As usual, Jared Sullinger and J.D. Weatherspoon led Northland with 25 and 16 points respectively. The 15-4 Red Devils were led by Jeremy McCoy with 13 points.

IN OTHER WEEKEND HIGH SCHOOL MEN’S  BASKETBALL ACTION

*Traevon Jackson scored 25 points, and host Westerville South (20-0, 14-0) completed and unbeaten regular season by defeated Olentangy Liberty (10-10, 7-7). Isaiah Rogers scored 15 points and Jon Jennings had 11 for South,  which led 38-22 at halftime.

*Gahanna over Groveport, 65-21 as Anthony Jackson scored 12 points to lead the Ohio Capital Conference Ohio Division champion Lions (19-0,13-0) over the host Cruisers (1-17,0-14).

*Taylor Rieger scored 17 points and Cameron Sheehan 15, as host Olentangy Orange earned a share of the Ohio Capital Conference Capital Division title with a 54-50 victory over Delaware.

*Logan Elm beats Canal Winchester, 51-38 as Logan Hauserman scored eight of his 16 points in the third quarter, and host Logan Elm (17-2,12-1) beat Canal Winchester (14-5,11-2) to win the Mid-State League Buckeye Division for the second year in a row.
