He stopped 182 of 193 shots for a .943 save percentage in an eight-game span, including his third career shutout March 3 against the Phoenix Coyotes. Drew Doughty, after taking an elbow to the face Wednesday night courtesy of the Detroit Red Wings' Todd Bertuzzi, practiced with the team Thursday and reported no concussion symptoms. The Blue Jackets are 3-3-4 over their last 10 and could be at the point of playing spoiler.
