Oh my goodness. Last night, the Blue Jackets snapped their losing streak to the Montreal Canadiens, by a final score of 5-2.
Montreal got goals from Brendan Gallagher and PK Subban. Other players with points include Andrei Markov and Jeff Petry. Lars Eller, my player to watch, played 15:22 last night with a plus/minus -1 rating and one shot on net. Mike Condon allowed four goals on 24 shots against for a 0.833 save percentage (83.3%).
Columbus got goals from Cam Atkinson (3) and Brandon Saad (2). Other players with points include Boone Jenner (3), Brandon Dubinsky (3), Alex Wennberg, Justin Falk, and Scott Hartnell (my player to watch). Joonas Korpisalo stopped 32 of 34 shots for a 0.941 save percentage (94.1%).
