In mid December the Blue Jackets lost a heart-breaker to the Blues in OT 4-3. They have a shot at redemption early in 2014 though, they will travel to St Louis to face the Blues on the 4th of January.

The Blue Jackets old foe hasn’t lost a step, and they currently sit in 2nd place in the Central division – only 6 points behind the Blackhawks.

Tyutin, Johansen, and Anisimov all scored for Columbus. Tarasenko had 2, Stewert added 1, and Backes scored the game winner in OT for the Blues. Mike McKenna made 27 saves for the Blue Jackets, and Jaroslav Halak made 30 saves in the Blues victory.

See you soon St. Louis!
