The Blue Jackets found their way into second place in the Ted Lindsay Division by winning two games and losing once.

The Sabres defeated the Blue Jackets by a score of three to two in a hard fought game in which Columbus was down by two goals just minutes into the first period. In the second game, the Blue Jackets took on the Carolina Hurricanes prospects and won by a score of seven to five. The Third game saw the Blue Jackets taking on the New York Rangers prospects, and winning by a score of four to two.
