Columbus Blue Jackets
Bryan Berard tallied a goal and an assist against his former mates and Jason Chimera scored in his Columbus debut to propel the Columbus Blue Jackets to their first victory of the 2005-06 campaign, 3-2 over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night.

Chimera, obtained from Phoenix on Saturday, scored in his first game as a Blue Jacket, giving Columbus an early 1-0 lead. Manny Malhotra and Trevor Letowski assisted on the play to put the Jackets on the board.

Chicago's Pavel Vorobiev knotted the score off an assist from Tyler Arnason at 15:19 of the first period. Columbus reclaimed the lead when Berard scored his first as a Blue Jacket on the power play on assists from David Vyborny and Nikolai Zherdev. Jody Shelley scored just two and a half minutes later off an assist from Berard and Jaroslav Balastik, the first NHL point of Balastik's career, to put Columbus up 3-1.

Vorobiev tallied his second goal of the evening to cut the Columbus lead to one, lighting the lamp at 5:32 of the third. Columbus goalie Marc Denis stopped 15-of-16 shots in the third period, finishing with 30 saves on the evening to hold the one goal lead and earn his first victory of 2005.

Chicago out-shot the Jackets, 32-27, and Columbus finished 1-of-4 on the power play while stopping 7-of-8 Chicago man advantages.
