Roslovic dangles, dekes for highlight-reel, game-winning goal


It wasn’t Jack Roslovic‘s first goal with the Columbus Blue Jackets, but it was easily his prettiest.

The Blue Jackets forward dangled and deked for a highlight-reel goal that was the game-winner in their 3-2 win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday.

Roslovic, who Columbus acquired from the Winnipeg Jets along with forward Patrik Laine for forward Pierre-Luc Dubois on Jan. 23, picked up a pass from Vladislav Gavrikov in the neutral zone then put the puck between his legs while splitting Carolina defenders Brett Pesce and Ryan Dzingel.

He then snuck the puck between the pads of Columbus goalie Joonas Korpisalo, breaking a 2-all tie with just 4:36 left in regulation. It also fired up his teammates.

“For Jack to come u big like that at the end of the game was obviously a phenomenal goal,” Blue Jackets defenseman Scott Harrington.

It was Roslovic’s second goal of the season, with each coming for Columbus, and boosted his point streak to five games.
