Despite blowing another lead, Washington heads into Game 4 trailing Columbus by just one game after a strange double-overtime goal by Lars Eller.
Josh Anderson scored 30 seconds into the game and Sergei Bobrovsky did the rest, recording his 23rd career shutout as the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Arizona Coyotes 1-0 on Saturday night. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner had 35 saves and got his fourth shutout this season as Columbus won its second game in as many days and its 10th out of 13. Antti Raanta started in goal for the Coyotes after missing seven games with an injury and was sharp in stopping 33 shots.
One of the best things about this season for the Columbus Blue Jackets has been the play of 19-year-old Pierre-Luc Dubois. But does he have a shot at the Calder Trophy? Pierre-Luc Dubois has played very well for the Columbus Blue Jackets through the first quarter of the 2017-18 season. In 28 games, PLD has 11 points (4 goals, 7 assists), a 60.8% CF on even-strength and a 6.8 expected plus-minus.
The road to the 2016 NHL Draft is a precise and calculated one. How does Blue Jackets management prepare for it?
The Blue Jackets head into the season with all eyes on Saad, the talented 22-year-old forward acquired from the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks in the offseason.
