"I'm taking baby steps, Dr. Marvin."
In a rare road win, the Jackets shutout the Oilers 4-0. Columbus goalie Fredrik Norrena earned his first NHL shutout by stopping 21 shots. Four different goal scorers for the Blue Jackets: Svitov, Brule, Carter and Fritsche (who also had two assists).
The short analysis of the team since the coaching change is that the team has played harder and focused on the defensive end. The last three games they have given up a total of 3 goals. Nice start for Coach Hitchcock, but it is a long season.
