The Columbus Blue Jackets won against the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, continuing the pattern. Unfortunately, the star goaltender, Sergei Bobrovsky, was injured. Here’s a look at who I believe the three stars were from last night’s game.
Third Star: Blake Comeau
The Blue Jackets out hit the Lightning 42-21. Why? Because Blake Comeau was a hitting machine. He had 11 hits on the night, and was awarded the crown in the dressing room by the players.
Second Star: Nick Foligno
Through the legs goal. Need I say more?

First Star: Sergei Bobrovsky/Curtis McElhinney
Bobrovsky made some great saves, including a highlight reel one on the play that injured him. Here’s a look at that play:

He makes the glove save, gets his skate caught on the goal post, then injures either his knee or his groin. He will go for an MRI today to survey the damage.
Curtis McElhinney had some really great saves after taking over for Bob. The two of them ended up getting the shut out, even though it is recorded as a team shut out. They truly deserve the first star because without them, this game could have easily turned the other way. The Lightning out shot the Jackets in the first and third periods.
