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 March 9-15.

March 9, 2001 – Just one month after the first hat-trick in Blue Jackets' history, courtesy of Geoff Sanderson in a 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators, Deron Quint adds another, becoming the first Columbus defenseman ever to score three goals in a game. Quint beats the Panthers' Trevor Kidd three times, helping the Jackets pull out a wild 7-6 OT win in Florida. Only one other Columbus D-man has had a trick since. Bryan Berard scored three times against Curtis Joseph in a 5-2 Jackets' victory over Phoenix on January 8, 2006.


March 10, 2003 –
Jackets' blueliner Jaroslav Spacek has quite a memorable night in terms of the scoresheet. Spacek records three assists in a 6-5 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, tying Derrick Walser's team mark for most helpers in a single game by a defenseman (January 11, 2003 in a 7-2 win over Calgary). The well-travelled Spacek also finishes the game with a +4 rating, the best ever by a Columbus defenseman.
 

March 11, 2006 – The Jackets' first ever draft pick Rostislav Klesla makes some personal history in front of an appreciative crowd at Nationwide Arena. With the score tied 2-2 against the eventual Stanley Cup finalist Edmonton Oilers, Klesla beats newly-acquired goalie Dwayne Roloson at 4:06 of overtime for the first OT winner of his career. The goal marks the second time Columbus has got the best of Roloson in an extra session. On January 31, 2004, Anders Eriksson scores in OT with Roloson in the cage for a 2-1 Jackets' win over the Minnesota Wild. In fact, Columbus' first ever shootout victory comes on October 28, 2005 with Roloson in goal for the Wild. Trevor Letowski beat him in the eighth round for a 2-1 Jackets' win.
 

March 15, 2003 – Columbus pounds the Minnesota Wild 5-0 on home ice. Marc Denis makes 24 saves for his fourth of five shutouts in the 2003-04 season and Andrew Cassels' opening goal stands as the winner. The five-goal margin equals a franchise record for largest margin of victory, which had occurred on two other occasions to that point. The team record for most consecutive goals scored in a game is also tied.
