Player of the Night: Sergei Bobrovsky, Columbus Blue Jackets
Bob made 36 saves and recorded his 21st career shutout in helping the Blue Jackets to a 2-0 win over the New York Rangers. The win was the Blue Jackets’ third in a row while New York was blanked for the first time this season.
Highlight of the Night: Bob was on his game:
• Despite the loss, Henrik Lundqvist was outstanding for the Rangers in stopping 40 shots.
• Artemi Panarin’s power play goal in the third period put the game out of reach:
• New York has dropped two in a row since their six-game winning streak.
• The Sabres, who have now lost four straight, had their chances, but Jimmy Howard stopped 19 of 20 shots and was thankful for one of his posts:
