The Columbus Blue Jackets were the only team without a shorthanded goal before Jan. 25.

Then Alexandre Texier had something to say about that.

In the second period of last Thursday's 5-2 win over the Calgary Flames, Texier broke a 2-2 tie on the penalty kill at 6:33.

At 4:30 of the second period against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday, Texier started the scoring with his eighth goal and a second shorthanded goal in as many games. He added an assist on Sean Kuraly's goal 1:44 later.
