In a season in which injuries and spotty play will keep them out of the playoffs, the Columbus Blue Jackets are still piling up some memorable moments. Scott Hartnell scored three times, and the Blue Jackets earned their fourth consecutive win by rebounding from a two-goal deficit to beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-3 on Tuesday night. ”It was a measuring-stick game for us,” said the 32-year-old Hartnell, a hard-nosed player who has 25 goals and 28 assists after he was acquired in a trade with Philadelphia for R.J. Umberger and a draft pick. We want to keep it up.” It was the first hat trick for the Blue Jackets since Cam Atkinson had three goals at Colorado on April 5, 2012.
