Columbus 4 Nashville 3
David Vyborny and Rusty Klesla carried the team to a hard-fought win on home ice against a solid team. Vyborny added two goals (14-15) including the game-winner in the third period. Klesla assisted on three of four Columbus goals.
Nash and Wescott had the other goals. Nashville outshot Columbus 27-24. Berard, who hurt his back in the game the other day, did not play.
This win was a good bartometer for the Jackets. The team is beginning to churn out wins, but they need wins against the better teams in order to raise confidence.
