Columbus Blue Jackets win 10th Straight over Florida

The Columbus Blue Jackets recorded their 10th straight win with a 4 – 0 victory over the Florida Panthers Thursday night.

NHL fans will be familiar with the Blue Jackets’ winning streaks. The team joins Philadelphia (1984 -1986) and Pittsburgh (2010-2013) as the only franchises with 10-game win streaks in consecutive seasons.

Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 33 shots in his fifth shutout of the season. It was the 24th shutout of Bobrovsky’s career, and his seventh straight win.

Cam Atkinson scored a goal and made an assist. Pierre-Luc Dubois had two assists for the Blue Jackets. Sonny Milano, Seth Jones and Thomas Vanek also scored for Columbus.

After a scoreless first half, Atkinson got his goal 59 seconds into the second period. Artemi Panarin stole the puck on the blue line and fed Atkinson for the goal. It was Cam Atkinson’s 18th goal of the season. It was Panarin’s 44th assist – a team-leading figure.

Two minutes later, Milano scored his 13th goal of the season to make it 2-0, after a Matt Calvert assist. It was 3 – 0 at 5:42 of the third period. Jones, back after missing three games with an upper-body injury, scored his 15th of the season with a slap shot from just inside the blue line.

It was Jones’ 50th point and sixth power-play goal of the season for a team-leading 19th point with a man advantage. Dubois recorded his ninth multipoint game. The goal ended Florida’s streak of 24 straight penalty kills over 10 games.

Vanek’s empty-netter at 17:35 of the third, his 21st goal of the season, made it 4-0.

“We were disciplined, we were smart with the puck,” Bobrovsky said. “We played as a unit, one group, defense and offense. That’s how the game was built up, little moments. We were disciplined, we were smart, we were together.”
