SvoNotes: Blue Jackets trying to find a full 60 minutes

Columbus dropped its fourth straight Saturday night against Washington

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider / BlueJackets.com

Down 2-0 after 40 minutes of hockey on Saturday night in Washington, staring a fourth straight defeat in the face, the Blue Jackets put together a third period of desperation. 

Justin Danforth set up Eric Robinson's goal early in the period, and the Blue Jackets put together a good forecheck and pushed for the tying goal. 

"Yeah, it was just, we knew if we got one in the third there, we'd be able to get on them and build that momentum," Robinson said. "We had a few chances there to tie it and it seemed like one was gonna go in, it just didn't happen."

Columbus has lost three in a row for the first time all season, and the Jackets didn't look too hot in the game before that, either, even though it was a win.

SvoNotes: Tarasov's whirlwind day ends with impressive NHL debut

The Blue Jackets couldn't pull out the win, but the rookie goalie turned some heads with his performance

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider / BlueJackets.com

When Daniil Tarasov woke up and ate breakfast, he probably didn't foresee the series of events that would end with him standing on the ice in Dallas by Thursday evening. 

When he went to bed Wednesday night, he was just another young minor league hockey player chasing a dream. One phone call from Blue Jackets director of player personnel Chris Clark changed all that, though, and now Tarasov can call himself an NHL goalie.
