Josh Anderson scored two minutes into overtime to give the Columbus Blue Jackets their fifth straight win, 1-0 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.
Columbus activated C Lukas Sedlak, who had missed 13 games with an ankle injury. … Blue Jackets C Alexander Wennberg has missed three games with an upper-body injury and remains day-to-day. … Gaudreau has registered a point in all but four games this season. … Columbus’ Cam Atkinson played in his 400th NHL game, while Zach Werenski took the ice for the 100th time.
It is possible, maybe even probable, that the Seattle Seahawks’ famed Legion of Boom secondary has played its final defensive snap together.
When viewers tune in to see the Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football, they will see only free safety Earl Thomas remaining from the secondary that has driven much of Seattle’s historic success on defense during the Pete Carroll era.
Left cornerback Richard Sherman is beginning an arduous rehab from a torn Achilles tendon and will be 30 years old heading into the final year of his contract. Strong safety Kam Chancellor, who will turn 30 four days after Sherman does, has missed 11 of the Seahawks’ past 50 games and could miss the final seven this season if his neck injury is as ominous as reports suggest.
Sherman brushed off the assistance of trainers as he walked off the field on his own power, but it appeared he was telling Seattle teammates on the sideline that he tore his Achilles.
“He’s got to get checked and all that kind of stuff, but the doctors are really clear about it that he ruptured his Achilles,” Carroll said. “There’s no coming back from that until you get surgery and all that kind of stuff.”
