This Week in Blue Jackets History: Feb. 3-9

Every Wednesday, BlueJackets.com will highlight the best games and most memorable moments from the history of the Columbus Blue Jackets. This week we look back at the best from February 3-9.


February 8, 2006 – Hopefully, the fans didn't blink. The Blue Jackets establish the mark for the fastest two goals in franchise history during a 7-4 win over the Los Angeles Kings in front of an ecstatic crowd at Nationwide Arena. Original Jacket David Vyborny scores at 10:17 of the third period and just 14 seconds later, Sergei Fedorov adds another for the clicking Columbus offense.


February 6, 2004 – The hockey world gets a glimpse of young phenom Nikolai Zherdev, who competes in the YoungStars Game at NHL All-Star Game Weekend in St. Paul, Minnesota. The 19-year-old Kiev, Ukraine native scores a goal and adds an assist in the contest. The following day, Zherdev's teammate Rick Nash makes his All-Star debut, becoming the first teenager to play in the big game in 12 years. Nash is also the youngest player to suit up for the All-Star Game since 1986.


February 8, 2002 – David Vyborny bags the game-winning goal as Columbus skates to a 3-2 road win over the Central Division rival Detroit Red Wings. It's a significant victory given that the W is the Jackets' first ever in storied Joe Louis Arena. Wins at The Joe are hard to come by – Detroit loses just seven times in total on home ice in a season that culminated with the Stanley Cup.
