* Jeff Carter, CBJ center: Second hat trick of the season, fourth of career. He’s starting to play well since coming off injured reserve.

* R.J. Umberger, CBJ LW: Had his first Gordie Howe hat trick which is a goal, assist and a fight.

* Rick Nash, CBJ LW: Had plenty of hop-and-skip in his step with a goal and an assist.


* The Blue Jackets revived power-play has been on fire lately. They began the season 0-for-20 and had the worst in the league. Recently, by scoring their 11th power-play goal in the past nine games, has raised their percentage to 30.8 during that time and 20th in the league.

* The Blue Jackets, believe it or not, have the 3rd-most power plays in the NHL with 228.

* The hat trick by Jeff Carter was the second scored by Columbus this season and the 21st in franchise history. It was the 12th hat trick at Nationwide Arena and the first since Matt Calvert’s three goals on February 25, 2011 vs. Phoenix.

* Columbus is 12-for-39 on the power-play for 30.8 percent, the last nine games.

* The CBJ scored the first goal of the game for the 26th time this season and are 12-10-4 in those games.

* Columbus overall vs. San Jose Sharks is 14-26-4 all-time, 11-9-2 at Nationwide Arena.

* There were 14,625 fans in attendance last night.

* Center Antoine Vermette played in his 600th game of his NHL career last night by picking up an assist on David Savard’s goal.

*Center Jeff Carter played in his 500th game of his NHL career last night. It was his second hat trick the past 17 games, the other was December 22 at Nashville.

* Goalie Steve Mason earned his eighth win of the season. It was the 85th overall win of his CBJ career, setting a franchise record for goaltender wins. He was able to achieve the honor in 206 games and broke Marc Denis’ record of 84 wins which was earned in 266 games.

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Eventhough the Columbus Blue Jackets have played three games under interim head coach Todd Richards, there is obvious improvement in their play.

The team is passing the puck better, they seem to have more hustle in their game, the power-play and penalty-kill look rejuvenated and Rick Nash, the team’s star, is on a hot streak of four goals in four games, three with Richards on the bench.

They did lose Saturday night’s contest to the San Jose Sharks at Nationwide Arena, 2-1, but the team is playing better.

Patrick Marleau, who has been a Jackets-killer for years, scored off a rebound shot with 2:57 to play that game the Sharks the game-winner. The Sharks now have a point streak of eight games in a row, are 6-0-1 in 2012 and 6-0-2 in their past eight games.

The postgame talk in the San Jose dressing room was centered on a hard shoulder-to-the-head hit on the Sharks’ Andrew Desjardins three minutes into the second period by the Columbus’ Dane Byers. A woozy Desjardins had to be helped to the dressing room by medical personnel. Brad Winchester, San Jose’s enforcer, did not like what he saw and jumped to his teammate’s defense and fought Byers, who was given a match penalty.

Desjardins did not return to the game, but later in dressing room, he told the media that he felt better.

Ryan Clowe scored the other Sharks goal and Thomas Greiss, the goaltender, garnered 25 saves to defeat Columbus for the second time in his only starts since December 3. He beat Columbus on the West Coast on January 5.
