Highlights: Jeff Carter Hat Trick

Standard Spin: With his earlier injury now behind him, Jeff Carter is starting to come through for fantasy owners.  He recorded the hat-trick on Thursday, along with 2 PPGs, on 4 shots.  Carter now has 10 goals and 16 points in 23 games on the year.  Unfortunately for CLB fans, the Blue Jackets continue to lose - it is going to take something special to get that team headed in the right direction.  Of note: David Legwand had a 2 point night.  After a fast start, Legwand is once again playing like his same streaky self; he only has 4 points in his last 8 games.
