Korpisalo's 24 saves leads Jackets to 5-2 victory

Joonas Korpisalo turned aside 24 shots and five different players scored for the Blue Jackets in their 5-2 win against the Jets

  • 04:48 •

WINNIPEG, MB - Outside of downing the New York Islanders 5-0 to start the season, the Columbus Blue Jackets haven't played a more complete game than the one they played Tuesday at Bell MTS Place.

Their 5-2 dismantling of the Winnipeg Jets, on the road, was impressive from start to finish.

It was their fourth straight victory, with three on the road. They set a new franchise high with 10 points after six games (5-1-0). They got a nice effort in net from backup Joonas Korpisalo, who made 24 saves after allowing five goals in his only other start - a 5-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 7 in Chicago.

"Our home opener was a pretty solid game for us, and it was nice to have this one," said Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson, who scored his first goal of the season. "At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how you win, as long as you win … but these wins are nice."

by Brian Hedger JacketsInsider / BlueJackets.com

WINNIPEG, MB - After bailing themselves out for three straight games with late efforts to win, the Blue Jackets decided not to wait so long Tuesday night at Bell MTS Place.

Rather than flipping the switch in the third period, the Jackets fired up the engine at puck drop and didn't let off the gas until it was over. They defeated the Winnipeg Jets 5-2 for their fourth straight win and tied a franchise mark set in 2009-10 with 10 points in their first six games (5-1-0).

Patience paying off for top line

Panarin, Wennberg and Atkinson steadily gelling and taking over games

by Brian Hedger JacketsInsider / BlueJackets.com

Patience isn't always listed in the "strengths" column of NHL coaches.

Hockey at this level is a fast game, and this league is fastest of them all. Those who wait around too long, being indecisive, often get left behind. That's why there's a decent chance, if you ever meet an NHL coach, there might be a cocktail napkin in his pocket with a bunch of line combinations written all over it.

The search for chemistry never ends.
