Columbus rides big 1st period to win over Atlanta
ATLANTA (AP) - Jonathan Sigalet and Mike Blunden scored 26 seconds apart in the first period and the Columbus Blue Jackets won their preseason opener under new coach Scott Arneil, 5-2 over the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday night.
Mathieu Garon started in goal for Columbus and made 12 saves on 13 shots before giving way to David LeNeveu late in the second period. Ondrej Pavelec went all the way for the Thrashers, facing 26 shots.
Little scored a power-play goal with 5 minutes left in the first period, but the Blue Jackets regained their two-goal edge 90 seconds into the second. Gabreil scored on a breakaway, and Columbus increased its lead on a tip-in by Calvert early in the third.
