Blue Jackets Win on Last-Minute Goal

November 21, 2002|From Associated Press

Once again the Columbus Blue Jackets watched a goal slide into the net in the final minute. For a change, it was good news for them.

David Vyborny scored while falling to the ice with 47.7 seconds left as the Blue Jackets beat the St. Louis Blues, 3-2, Wednesday night at Columbus, Ohio.

The Blue Jackets have lost three games in the final 35 seconds and another in overtime when they had a lead with just more than a minute left in regulation.

"I think they're tired of seeing it on TV, hearing it on the radio and reading it in the newspapers, so they did something about it," Columbus Coach Dave King said.

Montreal 3, Pittsburgh 2 -- Andrei Markov scored the winning goal as the Canadiens won in overtime at Pittsburgh.

Jan Hrdina scored two goals for Pittsburgh, which fell to 0-3-2-2 during a seven-game winless streak.

New York Islanders 3, Florida 3 -- The Islanders are unbeaten in their last five trips to Sunrise, Fla., going 3-0-2.

Viktor Kozlov scored the 100th goal of his career for the Panthers.

Dallas 2, Phoenix 2 -- Deron Quint and Danny Markov scored late in the second period and Brian Boucher had 36 saves as the Coyotes rallied from a two-goal deficit to tie the Stars at Phoenix.

Vancouver 5, Chicago 3 -- The Canucks won their fifth straight game as Markus Naslund scored two power-play goals and added an assist at Vancouver, Canada.

Brendan Morrison, Trevor Linden and Matt Cooke also scored for the Canucks.
