Dubois has three points to help Blue Jackets defeat Canadiens

Dubois has three points to help Blue Jackets defeat Canadiens”

The Blue Jackets are 19-7-6 in Eastern Conference play. "It didn't happen tonight but there was belief in here between periods". Mark Pysyk (7 goals, 13 points this year) picked up his first National Hockey League career hat trick, as the Cats erased a 3-1 third-period deficit to claim their seventh win in the last eight contests (7-1-0).

"We couldn't get it done in the third". They shut out the Florida Panthers 4-0 on Saturday.

Matched up against former Jackets starting netminder Sergei Bobrovsky, the game turned into a goaltending duel as the veteran and rookie traded sharp saves back and forth until Zach Werenski finally found a victor in OT.

The Columbus Blue Jackets placed Alexander Wennberg on injured reserve Monday, with the team announcing that he is expected to miss the next three to four weeks.

Rookie Elvis Merzlikins made 32 saves for his fourth shutout of the season for Columbus, 8-0-1 in its last nine games and 18-2-5 since December 9.

Vladislav Gavrikov scored the opener for Columbus at 12:45 of the first, a wrist shot from the face-off dot for the defenceman's fifth of the season.

The Canadiens (24-23-7) halved the deficit when Max Domi fired a shot past Elvis Merzlikins at 15:52, through traffic, for his first goal since December 31. The play started when Dubois stole the puck from Ryan Poehling along the half wall.

Nyquist scored the empty-netter for Columbus with 1:53 remaining before Weber pulled one back for Montreal 52 seconds later on a slap shot from the point. Weber's aggressive pinch, and Tatar's failure to track back, led to Montreal's defensive breakdown.

Tatar made up for the mistake six minutes later when he got the Canadiens on the board.

Tomas Tatar reached the 20-goal plateau for the sixth consecutive year when he scored in the second period on a play that began when rookie Nick Suzuki forced a turnover in the neutral zone.

Tatar has six straight 20-goal seasons.

Dubois added a second goal late in the period, going around the net and beating Price with a wraparound. The Canadiens played the remainder of the first period without registering a shot on goal. They are 6th in power play (23.9%) and 24th in penalty kill (77.5%). "It certainly wasn't played as a 0-0 game by either team". This may well have been a torch-passing moment for Merzlikins, who has looked as dominant as Bob ever did during his current seven-game winning streak, a stretch that includes a stunning four shutouts.
