Anaheim 4 Columbus 3
The Jackets drop a closely contested game on home ice against a solid team. If the Jackets are to jump to the next level of competition, they need to win more of these games.
Zherdev and Nash continued their scoring ways, each getting a goal and an assist. Fritsche added his fourth goal.
Despite Nash's power play goal, Columbus was only 1-9 with the extra skater advantage. Anaheim's game-winner was on the power play (they went 1-6). The game was a reflection of the season to date: good penalty killing but not enough power play conversions.
