Columbus 5 Coyotes 2
I don't think that I can remember a team being held to 15 shots on goal winning the game by three goals. The Jackets scored on every third shot on goal. Bryan Berard got a hat trick and all three goals were scored on the power play. Rusty Klesla and Rick Nash added goals to complete the scoring. Marc Denis kept the Jackets in the game by stopping 32 of 34 shots on goal. Federov had four assists in the game.
