For Blue Jackets goaltender Steve Mason, the atmosphere in the dressing room on Thursday after a 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars was something to savor, a forgotten memory coming back to him.

"It's nice to come into the room and see smiles on faces and hear some music afterward," Mason said. "It's a feeling that makes you want to get more and more of them."

The Blue Jackets earned their fourth road win of the season, but it marked the first time they had won in regulation on the road and the first time they had done so with Mason in goal for a long, long time.

Mason had a season-high 36 saves and was the game's first star, ending a garish personal streak away from Nationwide Arena. He had been 0-8-0 on the road this season and 0-9-2 dating to his last road win, March 12 at Carolina.
