Their performance on Thursday wasn't their best, but the Blue Jackets rookies didn't let it affect the rest of their stay in Traverse City.

A crazy 7-5 win over the Carolina Hurricanes the following day helped settle Columbus down, despite the frenetic pace of the game and a slew of penalties in between. They moved the puck extremely well, created a ton of chances, and found the back of the net on a regular basis. After a complete day off on Saturday, they returned to Center ICE Arena and got back to work on Sunday.

Austin Madaisky and Ryan Murray scored a pair of early goals to give the Blue Jackets a 2-0 lead over the Rangers and they didn't encounter much trouble after that, hanging on for a 4-2 win and punching their ticket for the third-place game on Monday afternoon. Oscar Dansk was solid between the pipes, making 21 saves for his second win in a row.

Three players had multi-point games for Columbus, including Boone Jenner (two assists) who has been one of the Blue Jackets' best players in the tournament.

Oliver Bjorkstrand had a goal and an assist for the Blue Jackets, and he's had a nice tournament in his first appearance.
