Oilers ring Tollefsen's bell

That's what happened to OKT in the first period of Saturday's game at Edmonton, according to Hitchcock. I'm guessing he sang that old song by Anita Ward and got what he asked for.

But the Jackets won big- probably by the greatest margin all season. With goals from Svitov, Brule, Carter and Fritsche (EN) the Jackets shut out the Oilers 4-0. The team played hard and finally cashed in on what they had been owed. After playing so hard this road trip, it was just now indicated on the scoreboard. Best of all, Norrena was in the net.
According to this article in the Dispatch, Nash had a few words regarding the play of Edmonton's goaltender Dwayne Roloson. During a power play, Nash was camped out in front of the net, as he often is. In an attempt to clear some space, Roloson, used his stick to pop Nash between the legs. Nash fell to the ice in agony, and I can't blame him. No one likes to get hit in the pills. The netminder took a slashing penalty, and Columbus went on a 5-3 power play.

Nice job, Jackets. Let's keep it up. Spread the goals around a little, maybe.

Jackets win 4-0 (Woo-hoo!)
