Blue Jackets look for scoring against Sabres

(TSX / STATS) -- As the Columbus Blue Jackets continue to search for the offense that was so productive last season, their defense is keeping them in the mix atop the Metropolitan Division this season.

Two teams headed in opposite directions square off when the Blue Jackets meet the Sabres on Monday night at KeyBank Center in Buffalo.

Columbus (12-7-1) has allowed just two goals in a three-game winning streak, including a 2-0 win over the New York Rangers on Friday. Two-time Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 15 of 36 shots in the third period en route to his second shutout this season and the 21st of his career.
