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 December 9-15.

December 10, 2006 – The Blue Jackets' special teams go off in a resounding 6-2 win over the Ottawa Senators at Nationwide Arena. Columbus finishes the night 5-for-11 with the man advantage, establishing a new franchise record for the most power-play goals in a single game. Rick Nash and Dan Fritsche notch two each, while defenseman Ron Hainsey also scores on the power play en route to a career-best three-point outing (1-2-3).

December 12, 2006 – Three weeks after Ken Hitchcock takes over as a head coach, the Jackets defeat Hitch's old club the Dallas Stars 3-1 in Dallas for a season-high fifth consecutive win. David Vyborny, Jason Chimera and Dan Fritsche each tally in the victory, with Fritsche's goal proving to be the game winner. Columbus dominates through the five-game stretch out-scoring the Edmonton Oilers, Colorado Avalanche, St. Louis Blues, Ottawa Senators and the Stars by a combined total of 21-4.

December 15, 2001 – Columbus tough guy Jody Shelley gets a taste of offensive glory as he bags the first goal (and point) of his NHL career on the road against the Los Angeles Kings. The towering Thompson, Manitoba native, who once scored 25 in a season as a junior player in Halifax, beats goaltender Felix Potvin for the memorable marker.
