VS. COLUMBUS Time: 5 p.m. On the air: TV: Channel 56; Radio: 830. Where: Honda Center. Records: Blue Jackets 11-12-3; Ducks 14-10-3. Records vs. Blue Jackets: 1-0-0. Update: Teemu Selanne's last 13 goals have come on the power play, tying the second-longest streak in NHL history. That's good news, as the Ducks' power play ranks ninth in the NHL. It is also bad, as Selanne has only one even-strength goal, meaning the second line hasn't been carrying its weight. The Blue Jackets' Rick Nash had eight goals in the past 10 games before facing the Kings on Saturday night.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + If Sidney Crosby can be said to do anything quietly, he is quietly having a sensational start. Through Sunday he led the NHL in scoring with 17 points, including at least one point in all eight games the Penguins had played. That's a personal best to start a season for Crosby. + St. Louis forward David Backes scored six goals in the Blues' first seven games, matching his total in last season's 48-game schedule.
