Talk about an instant impact. In his first game with the Blue Jackets, Marian Gaborik contributed pretty much what everyone was looking for and more. He tallied the game-winning goal in the third period off a sweet centering pass from Brandon Dubinsky, re-directing the puck over Pekka Rinne's shoulder for the go-ahead goal at 4:16 that would stand up the rest of the way. With a massive 3-1 win at Bridgestone Arena, the Blue Jackets kept themselves in the thick of the playoff hunt and got their first regulation win in Nashville since April 3, 2006.
