Blue Jackets 3, Hurricanes 0

Nathan Gerbe fights for a rebound in front of Sergei Bobrovsky - Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sport

Carolina winning streak is stopped at five.

Sergei Bobrovsky looked to be in Vezina form on Friday night as the Columbus Blue Jackets maintained mastery of the Carolina Hurricanes with a 3-0 shutout at Nationwide Arena.

Bobrovsky made 36 saves on 36 shots for his second shutout of the season.

The Hurricanes had won five games in a row, but have not beaten the Blue Jackets since 2005.  The Jackets are 2-0 against their division rivals so far this season.

The game started out evenly until a Brett Sutter turnover resulted in a goal for the home team.  Nathan Horton pressured Sutter and Boone Jenner picked up the loose change to score unassisted at 15:00 into the period.

Just 70 seconds later, Brandon Dubinsky made it 2-0, and Bobrovsky had all the scoring he needed.

Anton Khudobin suffered his first loss of the season and made 21 saves on 24 shots for the losers.

The Canes returned home right after the game and will take on the Calgary Flames on Monday night.

Game Notes:

  • Carolina outshot Columbus 36-24 and were led by Jeff Skinner with seven.  Alexander Semin and Elias Lindholm had five each.  Kirk Muller moved Lindholm up to center the first line and they were able to generate a lot of shots.
  • John-Michael Liles had a game high four blocked shots.  The new Cane also had 23:24 of ice time, more than any other skater.
  • The team will take Saturday off but will return to practice at 11am Sunday morning.  Listen to post game interviews at CanesPR.com.
