It took the Blue Jackets one period to get going last night, and 54 minutes to finally break through against Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne. But it’s hard to imagine a more satisfying, sweeter-tasting victory for the Blue Jackets than the 1-0 win they earned over the Predators last night at Bridgestone Arena. Center Artem Anisimov finished a give-and-go with James Wisniewski by skating wide and around Nashville rookie defenseman Seth Jones and scoring between Rinne’s pads with 6:25 remaining. It was Anisimov’s sixth goal in six games, and four of them have won games. Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky had 28 saves for his seventh career shutout, matching Rinne save for save and withstanding a furious push by Nashville with Rinne pulled in the final 90 seconds. “I’m going to sleep better tonight than I did Thursday (after an ugly loss at Chicago),” coach Todd Richards said. “I thought after the first period we really had everybody going, and it was good to see. It was one of those games where you wonder if anybody is going to be able to beat the (goaltenders).” Don’t expect the NHL to market this game to novice fans, but it’s exactly the type of performance Richards was seeking. He reconfigured the forward lines in search of a more hard-nosed, relentless approach. “That’s a playoff game right there,” Wisniewski said. “That’s what it’s going to take. We had guys taking hits, blocking shots, getting punched in the head … just grinding it out.” The Predators dominated the first period, outshooting the Blue Jackets 14-5 and getting most of the scoring chances. The Jackets carried play the rest of the way, outshooting the Predators 26-4 from the start of the second period until midway through the third. Only Anisimov could penetrate the force field in front of Rinne. He came into the zone with the puck, dropped it to Wisniewski just inside the blue line, then accepted it back an instant later when Wisniewski fed the puck behind Jones and onto Anisimov’s stick. Anisimov skated through the left circle and switched to his backhand as he neared Rinne, flipping the puck through his pads for his 19th goal. The Jackets stood strong in the final minute of play. With 34.5 seconds remaining, Nashville’s Mike Fisher rang a shot off a post behind Bobrovsky, and seconds later Bobrovsky rolled atop a puck near the goal mouth after Predators forward Colin Wilson flubbed a shot at an open net. “Bob came up big at the end with the game on the line,” Richards said. “From the bench, it’s a great thing to see the desperation that the guys had in front of him. You see Shea Weber getting ready to shoot, and we’ve got guys getting into shooting lanes. It was a great team effort tonight.”
