Another home game, another workout for the big gun.
A week after an overtime loss to the Blues in their barn, the Jackets throttled St.Louis 8-4 in Nationwide Arena this evening.
Let’s start with the one big negative for the Jackets tonight - the four goals they gave up were all of the powerplay variety. That’ll hurt the PK percentage.
Now, on to the good:
1) Sam Gagner with a pair of goals tonight.
2) Nick Foligno continues to pile up the points with a goal and two helpers.
3) Wennberg shot! Wennberg scored!
4) Brandon Dubinsky gets his first goal of the season!
5) Markus Nutivaara with his first NHL goal!
6) Zach Werenski with his fourth goal of the year, giving him 12 points in 13 games.
7) Cam Atkinson with four helpers.
8) Lukas Sedlak, Scott Hartnell, Boone Jenner and Brandon Saad each had a pair of assists.
FINAL SCORE: 8-4 Jackets
