Blue Jackets Tame Wild 4-2, Extend Winning Streak To Fifteen

The two hottest teams in the NHL took the ice with their impressive winning streaks intact, as the Columbus Blue Jackets took on the Minnesota Wild. The Jackets were riding a 14-game win streak and the Wild had won twelve in a row. Columbus would prevail tonight with a 4-2 win.

The Blue Jackets got on the board first, as Cam Atkinson made it 1-0 at the 10:05 mark. Columbus would take that own-goal lead into intermission.

In the second, Jack Johnson struck at the 3:29 mark to make it 2-0. Cam Atkinson stretched out the lead to three with a goal just fifteen seconds later. Granlund would make it 3-1 with a power play goal at the 5:58 mark. Seth Jones would bring it to 4-1 with a goal at the 17:35 mark. The third period would start with all the momentum on Columbus’ side.

Though Minnesota would score within the first thirty seconds of the frame to make it 4-2, Columbus would lock down defensively to make that score the final.

Make that fifteen in a row for Columbus, as they move to 26-5-4.
