Only Rick Nash could fully appreciate the Blue Jackets' 4-3 overtime win over Nashville on Saturday, because only Nash had endured the entirety of the misery.
The Blue Jackets had lost 17 straight games -- 0-12-5 -- in Nashville before defenseman James Wisniewski scored on a slap shot from the blue line at 2:43 of overtime.
"It's a weird feeling in here," Nash said, referring to the jubilation surrounding him in the Blue Jackets dressing room. "But it's a good feeling."
The Jackets' last win had been on April 3, 2006. Since then, the Jackets have had five coaches, the Predators' home rink has had four different names and the only player who remained on the Columbus roster was Nash.
It was the longest active losing streak by one club in a specific road rink in the NHL.
"When I heard that, I was like 'Wow!' Wisniewski said. "That's unheard of. Something like that shouldn't happen."
