Chicago 3 Columbus 2
The Jackets lose a close game on the road. After falling behind 2-0 in the first period, the Jackets climbed back into a tie with goals by Jody Sheeley (yes, Jody) and Rick Nash (on the power play). Kyle Calder had the game winner after a defensive breakdown left him alone in front of the net. A quick fake later and the game was sealed. Khabibulin was tough in goal for Chicago, stopping 35 shots.
