DUCKS 4 | BLUE JACKETS 3

2 - Players with their first goals of the season tonight--Blue Jackets' Blake Comeau and the Ducks' Peter Holland.

65.8 - Dubinsky's home face-off win percentage, good enough for the number one spot in the NHL in that statistic. He won 89 percent of his face-offs tonight, going 8-of-9 in the circle.
