NASHVILLE -- Artem Anisimov just keeps scoring for the Columbus Blue Jackets. Phil Jones Jersey . 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. Eric Bailly Manchester United Jersey . The Indians scored twice in the top of the ninth, getting the go-ahead run on a wild pitch by closer Matt Lindstrom. Axford (0-1) came in seeking his fifth save in as many chances. Axel Tuanzebe Jersey .

In return, he was issued with the minimum sanction of a reprimand and cleared of any intention to cheat.The Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland, announced the settlement was reached after constructive discussions between Backstroms lawyers and the IOC, World Anti-Doping Agency, and International Ice Hockey Federation.Mr. Backstrom, WADA, the IOC and the IIHF are pleased that this matter has now been concluded and wish to clarify that at no time was Mr. Backstroms receipt of his Olympic silver medal at issue in the proceedings, CAS said.Backstrom tested positive for pseudoephedrine after Swedens win over Slovenia in the Olympic quarterfinals on Feb. 19, 2014. He said the stimulant was contained in a sinus medication he had been taking for allergies.An IOC disciplinary panel in Sochi ruled that Backstrom committed a doping violation. He was suspended and pulled from the Swedish team just hours before the Feb. 23 gold-medal game, which Sweden lost 3-0 to Canada.The Swedes were outraged by the timing of the decision, and said it affected the teeams performance. Wayne Rooney Jersey. A few weeks after the Olympics, the IOC ruled that Backstrom hadnt intended to enhance his performance, laying the blame for his positive test on the Sweden team doctor. Backstrom was allowed to receive the silver medal based on mitigating circumstances.Backstrom appealed in April to CAS, contending that no anti-doping rule violation occurred. WADA filed its own appeal to CAS in October, challenging the IIHFs ruling that Backstrom had not violated the agencys code and would face no further sanction.CAS said Backstrom agreed to withdraw his appeal against the IOC finding that he violated doping rules. In turn, WADA, the IIHF and the player agreed he should receive only a reprimand — the minimum applicable sanction permitted in the WADA code, CAS said.WADA, the IOC and the IIHF take this opportunity to state that there is no indication that Mr. Backstrom intended to enhance his sport performance by taking a prohibited substance, the statement said.The substance was contained in a product Backstrom was taking for medical reasons, he relied on the advice of his team doctor that it would not produce a positive sample, and he disclosed the product on his doping control form, the CAS statement said.Backstrom received his Olympic silver medal in a ceremony in Sweden on Aug. 28.___Follow Stephen Wilson on Twitter: http://twitter.com/stevewilsonap Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
