Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 17 of 18 shots in a 4-1 victory Monday night.

Bobrovsky only had to face 10 shots over the final 40 minutes. He now has a 14-5-2 record, 2.03 GAA, and .930 save percentage in 21 starts.

Sam Gagner led the Blue Jackets to a 4-1 victory on Monday with two goals and two assists.

Gagner was limited to just eight goals and 16 points in 51 games with Philadelphia last season, but he seems to have turned his career around in Columbus. After Monday's showing he now has 10 goals and 17 points in 23 games this season. Nick Foligno and Zach Werenski each found the back of the net for the Blue Jackets. Cam Atkinson assisted on two of Columbus' four goals.

Scott Harrington will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

This will be Harrington's eighth consecutive game as a healthy scratch. Dalton Prout will miss the game because of injury.
Dec 5 - 6:57 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky will get the nod in Monday's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

Bobrovsky didn't play in Saturday's clash against the Coyotes, but he's come up on the winning end in three of his last four games. He has a 13-5-2 record with a 2.08 goals-against-average and a .929 save percentage.

Jack Johnson is a plus-nine this season.

This is the first time in his career that Johnson is a plus-player but it is coming at a cost as he is not seeing any power play time as coach John Tortorella is using Zach Werenski and Seth Jones on the point, relegating Johnson and Ryan Murray to the bench with the man=advantage. "They’re not happy about it," Tortorella said. "Trust me, they’re not happy. But I think it’s a great lesson for our young players to look at them and how they’re handling it. "We split up for the (power play) meeting and there’s Jack and Murr, still in the dressing room. That’s hard, because I know they want to be a part of it. But it doesn’t affect how they come to work each day, and that’s a big for us." Johnson has five assists this season and has still been a force on the blueline.

Markus Hannikainen was sent back to AHL Cleveland on Sunday.

The 23-year-old has no points in five games with Columbus this season, and none in nine games overall. Hannikainen does however have three goals and eight points in 14 games down on the farm, by far his best rates as a pro.

Matt Calvert returned to the Columbus lineup Saturday after missing five games with an eye injury and concussion.

Calvert took 36 stitches to his eye and while that has healed nicely, the concussion issues forced him to be on the sidelines longer than he thought he would have to be but he did play two games before he left the lineup. "Midweek there after the second game (Nov. 21 against Colorado), I just wasn’t feeling good," Calvert said. "I think concussions have been a big thing across the league. If you’re not right, you should really tell your trainer. They handled it well and the doctor handled it great. I was in great hands and I’m feeling great right now. Sometimes symptoms don’t pop up until a few days after. I thought I was good, but then two games later I just wasn’t feeling great. I let them know. I went through the protocol and I just wasn’t myself, so I had to take some time off."

Boone Jenner scored his second goal in two games Saturday.

Jenner had 30 goals last season as well as 47 points but this season has not been kind to the forward as he was on a six game pointless streak before finding the back of the net Thursday. He has only four goals and eight points in 23 games but he looks like he is showing signs of ending his season long slump.
Dec 4 - 6:21 AM

Brandon Saad managed to put nine shots on goal Saturday.

The Blue Jackets pummeled Mike Smith in the Arizona net with 60 shots but managed to get just two past him in regulation and overtime before prevailing in the shootout. Saad did not score but had one assist and now has seven goals and 20 points in 22 games. He is a must start.
Dec 4 - 6:12 AM

Alexander Wennberg scored the game-tying goal Saturday night late in the third to force the Columbus Blue Jackets into overtime with the Arizona Coyotes, where they won a 3-2 decision in the shootout.

Wennberg has scored goals in every other contest since being part of the 5-3 decision over the Tampa Bay Lightning on November 25th. This was his sixth goal of the season and his 21st point. Cam Atkinson and Sam Gagner recorded shootout goals for the victory.
Dec 3 - 11:25 PM

It'll be Curtis McElhinney, not Sergei Bobrovsky, in net against the Coyotes on Saturday.

Thus will mark the backup's third start and fourth game of the season. He's turned away 74 of 80 combined shots this season and is 0-0-2. With a loaded slate of games tonight, you may wish to find a more favorable matchup.
Dec 3 - 6:02 PM

Markus Hannikainen, Dalton Prout and Scott Harrington will each be scratched against the Coyotes on Saturday.

There's just 16 games played between the three, and exactly no points. Unfortunately, there's simply no fantasy value to speak of here.

Matt Calvert will skate on the third line against the Coyotes on Saturday.

Calvert is slated to pair to the left of William Karlsson and Josh Anderson, to make perhaps the most dynamic third line in the game. He has two goals and three points in 17 games this season.
