Did I mean the player or the term "to win"?? Last night, the former Coyote center led his current team in front of Nationwide Arena to a 4-1 victory over Arizona.
Tobias Reider opened the scoring midway through the first period for a 1-0 Arizona lead. On the breakin from the power play, Alex Goligoski passed the puck to Oliver Ekman-Larsson, who found Reider open on a rush to the net, and beat Bobs for the goal. The former Oiler prospect's goal was his fourth of the season.
The Jackets came back to score four unanswered goals.
Sam Gagner came back to tie the game off his own power play marker. His goal was his ninth of the season. Alex Wennberg and Cam Atkinson had the assists.
The captain got the game winning goal in the second period, off another power play goal. Nick Foligno's goal was his 10th of the season; Atkinson and Gagner had the assists.
Sam Gagner scored his second goal of the game for his tenth goal of the season. Brandon Saad and Scott Hartnell had the assists.
Zach Werenski scored his sixth goal of the season. Gagner had the lone assist for a four point night.
