This Week in Blue Jackets History: October 21-27

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 October 21-27

October 27, 2000 – The Blue Jackets give the hometown fans a special memory by getting the franchise's first ever win on home ice. Goaltender Marc Denis turns away 32 of 33 shots as Columbus defeats the visiting Washington Capitals 3-1.

October 27, 2006 – Blue Jackets' goaltender Pascal Leclaire picks up the first shutout of his NHL career stopping all 38 shots against the Los Angeles Kings in a 2-0 victory at Nationwide Arena. It was his only shutout until he registers three more in his first three wins of the 2007-08 season.

October 28, 2005 – Columbus puts together an incredible 20 minutes of hockey by racking up 24 shots in the third period against the Minnesota Wild. That persistent effort pays off when captain Adam Foote, with the Jackets' net empty, scores with 42 seconds remaining to send it to overtime. Columbus eventually takes the game 2-1 in a shootout. The 24 shots is the most ever by the Blue Jackets in one period of play, while the 53 total shots over 60 minutes and the overtime session also establishes a franchise high.
