Matt Calvert scored twice for the Blue Jackets in a 3-1 win over Boston Saturday.
It was a tough night for Calvert as he had to go to the locker room on occasion as he was suffering from the stomach flu. In addition, he took an elbow from Carl Soderberg and had to be checked out in the quiet room. That he came back from all that and scored the winner and insurance goal was quite a feat. Calvert now has six goals and 12 points in 33 games this season. Jan 18 - 6:50 AM
