One of the biggest issues this season for the Columbus Blue Jackets has been a lack of depth scoring down the lineup. Tonight, that certainly wasn't an issue as they took down the Arizona Coyotes.

Lukas Sedlak led off the scoring just three minutes into the game, with perhaps one of the greasiest goals you'll ever see.

Sedlak's third goal of the season led way to David Savard's fourth goal of the season later in the period to give the Blue Jackets a 2-0 lead. Unlike Sedlak's greaser, this one was one heck of a snipe.

Two Arizona goals early in the second period tied the game up, and the Blue Jackets looked to be in a spot of trouble. That's when their once-anemic, now-hot power play struck, as Josh Anderson tipped home a Seth Jones shot to reclaim the lead. The goal was initially scored for Jones, but changed to Anderson a few minutes later.

Boone Jenner added a highlight-reel goal of his own, rifling a bouncing puck through Darcy Kuemper's legs from near the boards, to stretch the lead to 4-2.

In the Blue Jackets net, meanwhile, Sergei Bobrovsky turned in another strong effort, stopping 28 of 30 shots to claim his second win in a row to start the road trip.

Injury Update

Brandon Dubinsky was sent home to undergo an MRI on his hip, and will miss at least the next game in that process.
