Senators filibusted, Mason helps makes history.

Mason shutout his seventh game of the season. Not only did he help the Jackets veto the Senators 1-0, but he also put himself first in the NHL for Shutouts (7) and Goals-against average (1.98).

Another rookie, Jake Voracek, scores the only goal of the game. But this game was not won only by young talent. This game was won by a smart team with great depth and a chemistry that is unprecedented in CBJ history.

Some other representative players worth noting this game are Michael Peca, R.J. Umberger, Jason Williams, and Manny Malhotra. These are just a few of the names that make the depth of the Jackets campaign so powerful.

This win makes franchise history with the first ever three straight winning months. The race to the playoffs is looking better than ever for the Jackets and the Curse may soon be history as well. Mason has started 16 straight games for the Blue Jackets, winning 11 of them. He started the same week that Shake the Curse began its eradication. Coincidence? We believe it's fate. Shake the Curse.
