David Vyborny Columbus Blue Jackets

If the Columbus Blue Jackets want to get back on track, they will need to rely on players other than Nikolai Zherdev to score.
The Blue Jackets will try to avoid their fifth straight loss for the first time in over two months when they visit the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
Zherdev, who leads the team with 21 goals, has been Columbus` only source of offense for almost three games. On Feb. 11th, Zherdev scored for the Jackets early in the first period of a 5-2 loss to Nashville.
After the Blue Jackets were shut out 1-0 by Colorado on Thursday, Zherdev scored twice in the first five minutes of the third period in Columbus` 3-2 loss Saturday to Los Angeles.
"It`s a compliment for us to come back like that in someone else`s arena, but it would have been nice to win the game," Nash said. "They`re a good team. They have good defensemen, good forwards and good goaltending. But we played a good game and we were right there with them."
Nash has just one goal in five games while David Vyborny has a goal in eight games.
