What a run it was for the Columbus Blue Jackets – 12 consecutive games with at least a point.
Suddenly the Blue Jackets have gotten themselves back into the playoff hunt in the Western Conference. But the streak came to an end Saturday in a 5-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.
The loss comes one day after the Blue Jackets extended their streak to 12 games with a point in a dominant 5-1 performance over the listless Calgary Flames.
Things didn’t quite go their way in Nashville.
Sergei Bobrovsky, who had the second best save percentage (.932) and the fifth best goals-against average (2.00) among NHL goalies before play began Saturday, was pulled from the Columbus net before the 11-minutes mark of the opening period.
He allowed four goals on 11 shots, before giving way to back-up Steve Mason.
Anisimov returned to the game, scoring in the second period.
The Blue Jackets began a four-game road trip Saturday.
