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

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Usually when the Columbus Blue Jackets have to depend on a play behind reversed by the NHL’s video replay officials in Toronto, its usually bad news. But on Tuesday night, they got the call that all 12,245 fans in Nationwide Arena thought when the play occured, NO GOAL!

It was the final 1.8 seconds of the game and the St. Louis Blues were trying to tie the game up at 2-2.

Blue left winger David Perron scored on the play when he fell down and lost his stick and pushed the puck past CBJ goalie Steve Mason who he was laying on top of and the red lamp behind the goal was lit and the official gave the goal sign.

But the video replay showed that it was not a goal and the Blue Jackets, who have been playing well this month, beat the team they have trouble with, St. Louis, 2-1.

COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS Post-Game Summary: Anaheim 5 Columbus 3


Anaheim Ducks Right Wing Corey Perry is a Blue Jackets killer!

In Sunday night’s fourth and final meeting of the season between the two teams, Perry scored his 24, 25 and 26 goals of the season and a hat trick in leading the Ducks to a 5-3 win over the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena before a crowd of 14,043.

The NHL’s MVP from last season, scored his second hat trick of the season (both against Columbus) in a one month span.

He scored just :46 seconds into the game and added another before the end of the first period to put the Ducks up 2-0.

His third goal came in the second period and he almost had a fourth goal in the third, but CBJ goalie Steve Mason stopped him cold with a good save.

In January, the 6’3, 203-pound Perry scored a hat trick at the Honda Center against Columbus. He is the first player to score a hat trick against Columbus in the same season.


* Defenseman Fedor Tyutin snapped an 18-game goalless skid with his fourth of the season tonight. He had last scored Dec. 29 at Dallas. He is now tied for the team lead among defensemen in goals with Grant Clitsome. He later added an assist for second multi-point game in the last three outings. He has points in three of the last four games (1-4-5) after being held pointless the previous nine games. In 298 games with the Blue Jackets, he has tallied 26-91-117 compared to 15-52-67 in 251 games with the NY Rangers. In 18 career games against Anaheim, he has 4-8-12.

* Center Jeff Carter collected his first assist in seven games with a helper on Tyutin’s goal. He last had an assist Dec. 31 vs. Washington. He has points in three of the last five games (2-1-3) after being held to 0-1-1 the previous seven games. He has recorded 2-3-5 in eight career games against the Ducks.

* LW Vinny Prospal has points in five of the last six games after picking up an assist on Tyutin’s goal. He has 1-4-5 during that stretch after being held pointless the previous nine games. In 17 career games against the Ducks, he has collected 5-10-15.

Steve Mason, who was supposed to be the goaltender we saw play as a rookie, but instead has played the way he did last season, had another setback at practice on Monday.

The former NHL rookie of the year suffered a head injury after a shot by Rick Nash struck him in the head during the morning skate.

The Blue Jackets recalled Allen York from minor-league Springfield to backup current starting goalie Curtis Sanford.

Sanford has started three games, winning two and will start on Wednesday at New Jersey.

Mason ranks last in the NHL goaltending categories of goals-against average (3.63) and saves percentage (.875).

The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated goaltender Curtis Sanford off injured reserve and have assigned goalie Allen York to the team’s Springfield, Massachusetts affiliate in the AHL

Sanford has been out of action the last 10 games due to a pulled groin muscle suffered in practice on October 17.

York has been the CBJ’s backup to starter Steve Mason. He played in four games going 0-1-0.

Sanford, who is 32 years old, has played for Montreal, Vancouver and St. Louis in his career. He began his pro career in 2000 as an undrafted free agent. He has played in 109 NHL games.
