Blue Jackets 3 Devils 2, OT
Defenseman Bryan Berard scored his sixth goal of the season to beat the Devils in overtime. The Blue Jackets played a solid game on home ice, even managed to outshoot New Jersey 39-30. Mark Denis stopped 28 of 30 shots to give the Jackets a much-needed victory.
Nikolai Zhredev had a very good game, scoring two goals (his 7th and 8th of the season). Hopefully he will use this effort as a springboard to better, consistent effort every night.
Another 30 minute game for Foote. Berard and Federov each had six shots on goal. New Jersey was 0-7 on the power play; Columbus was 1-5.
