Blue Jackets look to ride momentum into matchup vs. Penguins

Two teams that hope they learned something from their most recent game clash Thursday when the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets and Pittsburgh Penguins meet at PPG Paints Arena.

The Blue Jackets topped the NHL's best team, the Washington Capitals, 5-2 on Monday. It not only broke a four-game losing streak, but it also provided something of a blueprint for how Columbus wants to play.

Ryan Murray, who scored against the Capitals, called it "our best game for sure. We got those goals, some funny bounces and bad-angle shots -- things that weren't going in before. ... We just had a great team effort."
