Wild Vs. Blue Jackets: Columbus Scores In Each Period To Win 3-1

The Columbus Blue Jackets won their second game in a row in Tuesday night's 3-1 win over the Minnesota Wild. The Wild went down early in the first period when David Savard picked up his first goal of the season, assisted by Vaclav Prospal and Grant Clitsome to put the Jackets up 1-0. The Wild were able to quickly answer however on a Nick Prosser goal assisted by Justin Falk and Carson McMillan to tie the game at 1-1 and looked like they might have found their rhythm.

That was the only goal the Jackets would surrender in the game however, as the Jackets scored two more goals on the night, one in each remaining period. Antoine Vermette picked up his seventh goal of the season on a power play in the second period, while Jeff Carter picked up his twelfth goal of the season in the third period. The Wild got fiesty in the third period, picking up eight total penalty minutes.
