Brian Elliott hasn't lost in six games. He also has never lost in regulation to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Blues are riding a 13 game point streak with a chance to make it 14, and a 7 game winning streak with a chance to make it eight.

Are they the best team in the NHL right now? Yes. Have they coped well with the loss of Kevin Shattenkirk thus far? Tolerably. The Blue Jackets may not be much of a challenge, but the Blues need to be focused on winning tonight. A win and a Ducks loss makes the Blues tops of the Central and tops of the NHL. It's been the hardest uphill battle for the team that I can remember, but at this point of the season, first is what they deserve. Hopefully it'll keep rolling in that direction into the playoffs.
