NASHVILLE -- Artem Anisimov just keeps scoring for the Columbus Blue Jackets. Brooklyn Nets T-shirts
. Anisimov had the only goal of the game with 6:25 remaining in the third period
and Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves to lead the Blue Jackets to a 1-0 victory
over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night. It was the sixth goal in the
last six games for Anisimov, who also has scored the last four game-winners for
Columbus. With the game still scoreless, James Wisniewski sent a pass from the
left circle to Anisimov at the left faceoff dot. Anisimov carried the puck to
the goal line before cutting toward the Nashville net and sliding a backhander
by Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne just inside the far post. "He skated down
the ice and he actually made the drop to me," Wisniewski said of Anisimov. "I
love when the D-man just stays there because then the forward just skates right
around them, make a quick pass, and hes all alone with the goalie. He made a
great move and scored." The Predators have lost four in a row and seven of their
last eight. They have scored just three goals in their last four games, and it
was Bobrovskys third shutout of the season for Columbus, which has won four of
five. "Weve been shooting enough pucks, were just not finding the back of the
net," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. "There are a lot of dry players." Making
his third consecutive start after being sidelined since late October with an
infection in his hip, Rinne made 35 saves. "I felt confident and I felt
comfortable out there tonight," Rinne said. "Hopefully, myself too, I can
improve all the time." Rinne faced just five shots in the first, but with 5:45
remaining in the opening frame, he denied Ryan Johansens wrist shot attempt from
the right side off of a 2-on-1 break. Midway through the second, Rinne got his
blocker on Boone Jenners shot from the right circle. Nashville dominated the
shots on goal in the first period, outshooting the Blue Jackets 14-5. "I though
guys did a great job in front of me," Bobrovsky said of his defencemen. "They
shot from mostly outside, so they boxed them out. They were great." The tables
turned in the middle frame when Columbus put 15 shots on Rinne, and the
Predators managed just four on Bobrovsky. The Blue Jackets had the shot
advantage in the third as well, 16-10. The Predators had a chance to tie late in
the third, but Mike Fishers shot from the slot rang off the far post with less
than 30 seconds remaining and then Bobrovsky got his glove on an attempt from
Colin Wilson. "It is one of those games where you are wondering is anybody going
to be able to beat either one of those guys," Columbus coach Todd Richards said.
"Bob came up big at the end when the game was on the line." NOTES: Columbus made
their only visit to Nashville for the 2013-14 season. The Blue Jackets and
Predators were both members of the Central Division before Columbus moved to the
Eastern Conference before the start of this season. ... Nashville was just 1-4-0
on its five-game homestand coming out of the Olympic break. The Predators are on
the road for their next three. ... The Predators have not scored a power-play
goal in their last four games.

jersey: 1974-76 road jerseys(Image via Bleacher Report)Why the Golden Seals?The
team was initially called the San Francisco Seals in the WHL and changed to the
California Seals when they entered the NHL. The team changed its name to the
Oakland Seals in an attempt to be marketed better in the Oakland area. The team
changed its name again under new ownership with two games already completed in
the 1970 season to the California Golden Seals because California is known as
the Golden State.Best goalie mask:Goaltender Gary Simmons wore this sweet black

move? Despite improved attendance, ownership wanted to move the struggling team
to Cleveland. They got their wish on July 14, 1976 as the league approved the
move.Relocated: The team was moved to Cleveland and they became the Cleveland
Barons.Previous #TBTs:Atlanta ThrashersHartford Whalers(Stats and info from
