The Columbus Blue Jackets are playing the Buffalo Sabres tonight, with the chance to set a new franchise record for most wins in a single season. They tied the previous mark from 2013-14 last night.
Well, they could not ask for a better start to this one.
The Blue Jackets opened up a three-goal lead in the first period, highlighted by a beautiful goal from Nick Foligno, as he pulled off the toe-drag before snapping a shot top corner. (For the Sabres, that’s an ugly start, as they were outshot 12-6 on home ice.)
He played two shifts for 1:44 of ice time before leaving the game.
