In the four games since the Blue Jackets acquired Gaborik for Derick Brassard, John Moore and Derek Dorsett, he has 2g, 3a, is a +3 and has 12 shots on goal. Here's Gaborik's goal on Tuesday night to put the game away for Columbus...

My 3 Stars of the Game 1. Cam Atkinson, CBJ. 1 goal, 1 assist, generally wreaked havoc around the ice. 2. Sergei Bobrovsky, CBJ.
