About the Blue Jackets: Columbus beat Dallas 4-2 at home Tuesday in the first of the two-game season series. ... Columbus winds up a three-game road trip, having split the first two. ... Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, good against Dallas last week, was impeccable Saturday at Nashville, making 28 saves in a 1-0 win. ... Columbus held the second wild-card spot in the East before play began Sunday.

About the Stars: Dallas’ decision last week to add veteran Tim Thomas at the trade deadline looks particularly wise after goalie Kari Lehtonen suffered a head injury Saturday when a Wild forward ran into him in a 4-3 victory over Minnesota. ... Stars coach Lindy Ruff said Sunday that Lehtonen was “not doing very well” and the Stars called up goalie Cristopher Nilstorp from the AHL Texas Stars. ... Thomas will get his first start with Dallas after stopping six shots Saturday in the final 13:23. ... The Stars lead the race for the second wild card in the West by three points. — From online reports
