BLUE JACKETS SHUT OUT OILERS 3-0 FOR FIRST WIN
October 10, 2013

The Blue Jackets (1-1-1) made their way from Denver to Edmonton overnight, coming off a 4-3 shootout loss to the Avalanche (2-0-1) at the Pepsi Center and hungry for the win they were so close to. They found themselves up 3-0 in the first period after some rather dicey goals allowed by newly-acquired Martin Brodeur, but the cagey vet would settle in and help the young Avs get the victory by slamming the door shut the rest of the way.

At Rexall Place, the Edmonton Oilers (1-2-0) found themselves in penalty trouble early and often and, although they would kill the first 3 penalties, it eventually caught up to them with goals on the 4th and 5ths powerplays from Cam Atkinson and Derick Brassard. Steve Mason stopped all 24 Oilers shots en route to his first goose egg of the year.

Columbus defenseman David Savard left the game early in the first period after blocking a Ryan Whitney point shot. Early reports indicate that his leg is broken and he's expected to miss significant time.

The Jackets have the next couple of nights off before they host the St. Louis Blues in their home opener Saturday night.
