Columbus Win Has St. Louis Singing The Blues
November 8, 2002

What a difference a few weeks made for the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Columbus defeated the Saint Louis Blues 5-2 to end the Blues' nine-game winning streak.

It's the biggest victory of the young season for the Blue Jackets and comes at the same place where they had their most one-sided defeat of the season. They lost 7-1 in Saint
Louis on October 17th.

It was the Blue Jackets' first victory ever at Saint Louis and the first road victory this season for the Blue Jackets.

The Blue Jackets got power-play goals in the second period from Derrick Walser and Andrew Cassels.

Saint Louis cut it to 3-2 on the second goal of the game by Eric Boguniecki with 6:43 left in the third period.

Ray Whitney scored 43 seconds later, giving Columbus a 4-2 lead. Cassels added an empty-net goal late in the game.

Geoff Sanderson also scored for Columbus.
