The Blue Jackets snapped a four-game losing streak with a 2-0
win over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday, with Leclaire stopping
38 shots for the memorable win. Nikolai Zherdev and Fredrik
Modin both scored for Columbus.
The 24-year-old Leclaire earned the starting goaltending job
when Marc Denis was traded to the Tampa Bay Lighting in the
offseason. He went 11-15-0 in 31 starts last season.
The Devils are also coming off a shutout as Martin Brodeur
turned aside 29 shots in a 2-0 victory over the Florida Panthers
on Thursday. It was the 82nd career shutout for Brodeur, tying
him for fourth on the all-time win list with Jacques Plante.
Brodeur has never shut out Columbus.
