Columbus, OH ( - Boone Jenner scored the game-winning goal in the third period as the Columbus Blue Jackets ended a six-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Monday. Matt Calvert also scored and Kerby Rychel registered his first NHL point for the Blue Jackets, whose last win was a 2-1 decision against San Jose on Nov. 15. Sergei Bobrovsky turned aside 24 shots in the win. Aaron Ekblad supplied the lone marker for the Panthers, who had their two-game win streak came to an end. Al Montoya stopped 21-of-23 shots. The two teams close out their home-and-home set in Florida on Thursday. Columbus, which announced that forward Artem Anisimov will miss 2-to-3 months because of a torn triceps earlier in the day, had its recent luck reverse at 9:55 of the third period. With the score tied at 1-1, Jenner guided the puck, which took an odd bounce off the boards, into the slot. Rychel gathered it and sent a shot on net. The shot was stopped, but Jenner was there to backhand it home. The Panthers pulled Montoya with under a minute to play, but were unable to force overtime. Michael Chaput tracked down the puck behind the net and dished a pass in the slot to Calvert, who dragged the puck from his forehand to his backhand and deposited the puck into a wide-open net to open the scoring with 4:53 left in the first. Ekblad tied it with his third of the season 1:23 into the second, as he rifled a point blast past a screened Bobrovsky and into the back of the net.

Nick Bonino Penguins Jersey .com) - Novak Djokovic easily took care of Andy Murray to reach the final at the $2.WINNIPEG - Hes closing in on 4,000 yards passing but couldnt get his Winnipeg Blue Bombers into the playoffs, yet quarterback Drew Willy is still coach Mike OSheas nominee for the teams most outstanding player this season.I think thats an easy choice, OShea said Wednesday.He missed a game so if hes in for that game he probably throws for over 4,000. He won us a bunch of games early. Hes been a good player for us, very good. Hes the guy you build everything around.Willy is a former Saskatchewan backup pivot who made his debut as a starter this season with the Bombers and has already passed for 3,747 yards. Thats good for second on the CFLs passing list behind Torontos Ricky Ray.Willy will start again Saturday when the Bombers (6-11) bring the curtain down on their disappointing season in Calgary against the Stampeders (14-2). This is the third season in a row the Bombers have missed the playoffs.The Bombers saw their faint playoff hopes disappear last Saturday when they dropped a 28-23 decision to the B.C. Lions.Despite their problems, theyve had some outstanding performances from some players besides Willy.Receiver Clarence Denmark has followed through with his pre-season promise and topped 1,000 yards for the first time in his four years in the CFL. Hes currently at 1,022 yards, second only to Edmontons Adarius Bowman.The Bombers also scored big in rookie kicker Lirim Hajrullahu. The native of St. Catharines, Ont., came out of Western and his 141 points are good for third on the CFL kicking points list right now.And if that wwasnt impressive enough, hes had to handle punting duties as well because of Mike Renauds injury issues.dddddddddddd Hajrullahu has averaged a respectable 43.8 yards a punt.OShea acknowledges both, despite favouring Willy for the teams top honour.Clarence Denmarks had a very, very good season. Without throwing the ball, he doesnt get those yards, right? he said of his top receiver.Denmarks performance has been all the more important to Winnipeg with high-profile free agent signing Nick Moore out of action for much of the season with injuries.(Hajrullahus) done very well for us, we put him in some tough positions too, asking him to punt on no notice, OShea said of his rookie kicker. Hes proven to be a professional. Its good to have him.Denmark certainly isnt crowing, or even looking forward to next season yet, with Calgary still in his sights.Not yet, were really trying to focus on this game, said the soft-spoken native of Jacksonville, Fla.Next season will come but we dont want to just lose again. We want to end the season on a positive note.Hajrullahu added that he may be happy with his rookie year but he can do better, and Winnipegs losing record is something that must be overcome.I think we could have done better as a team, he said.I mean, it sucks not being in the playoffs and Im a very competitive guy so this is definitely a disappointment for me. Personally I think Ive done well but sometimes well isnt enough. I still have different places where I can improve and Ill be working on those in the off-season.
