The Columbus Blue Jackets have waited awhile to get a win at home.

It came last night at Nationwide Arena, after center Derick Brassard blocked a shot with three seconds left to help seal a 4-3 win over a team the Jackets usually have trouble beating, the Phoenix Coyotes.

Columbus survived a third period where the Coyotes kept pressing to tie the game. It was the team’s first at home since December 13 and their first win in regulation at home since November. It also represented their first win under interim head coach Todd Richards.

Brassard was not the only hero in last night’s win. In his seventh NHL game, Tomas Kubalik and left wing Ryan Russell in his fourth NHL game, each scored their first NHL goals.

Blue Jackets star Rick Nash scored a goal and the assist for the four goals were distributed among eight players. Let’s not forget about goaltender Curtis Sanford, who made 32 saves, 27 of them in the final two periods.


* Derick Brassard, Blue Jackets center, scored a goal, collected an assist and a game-ending block of a shot

* Lauri Korpiloski, Coyotes left wing, scored a goal, dished out two assists and was in on every goal for his team

* Ryan Russell, Blue Jackets left wing, scored his first NHL goal which turned out to be important in the team’s win

The Columbus Blue Jackets have assigned right wing Tomas Kubalik to their minor-league affiliate, the Springfield Falcons.

Kubalik, who is just 20, collected two assists for two points in three games with the Blue Jackets after being added to the roster on emergency recall March 31. He became just the third player in franchise history to record a multi-point game while making his NHL debut with the club when he had two assists at Washington on March 31.

The Plzen, Czech Republic native was the Blue Jackets’ sixth pick, 135th overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and is playing in his first professional season and leads the Falcons in goals, points and power play goals (6), while ranking second (tied) in assists.

The Columbus Blue Jackets were officially eliminated from the playoff race with their overtime loss to the Washington Capitals in the nation’s capital.

The loss had a twist of irony. Former Jackets player Jason Chimera, a fan and media favorite, scored the winning goal at the 2:30 mark of overtime to give the Capitals a 4-3 decision.

The Jackets played the game without captain Rick Nash, who missed the game with an undisclosed injury, but stayed in the game by rallying three times from one-goal deficits to force overtime. They received goals from Antoine Vermette, Fedor Tyutin and Scottie Upshaw.

Winger Tomas Kubalik of Columbus, recalled from the minor-league Springfield, collected two assists in his NHL debut.

THREE STARS OF THE GAME: Jason Chimera Left wing of Washington; Tomas Kubalik, Right wing of Columbus played 15 minutes in first NHL game; Brooks Laich, Left wing of Washington earned two assists and had three takeaways.



Pittsburgh comes from behind to beat Columbus, 5-4 (Friday)

Chris Kunitz scored a goal and added an assist as the Pittsburgh Penguins scored twice in the third period to beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-4 in a preseason game Friday night at Nationwide Arena in downtown Columbus.

The Penguins played without their top two players, Sidney Crosby (sore hip flexor) and Evgeni Malkin (scratch).

Kunitz was given credit for the goal after the puck caromed off of two Columbus players on the power play late in the second period.

Nick Johnson scored between the circles on a power play for the winning goal at 8:13 of the third, and Mike Comrie made it 5-3 about 4 minutes later with a tap-in goal, finishing off a nice passing play.

The 2-0 Penguins also received scoring from Arron Asham and Mike Rupp.

Kristian Huselius had 3 assists all on  Tomas Kubalik’s three goals. Kyle Wilson also scored for the Blue Jackets who fall to 1-2.

Pittsburgh’s goalie, Brent Johnson allowed three goals on 21 shots, playing the first two periods. The Blue Jackets’ goaltender Mathieu Garon played the entire game and made 24 saves.
