Auston Matthews posted three points via two goals and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. Make it seven consecutive games with a goal for Matthews, who nicked Elvis Merzlikins for scores in the first and second periods. He also assisted on the first goal of the game, scored by William Nylander about five minutes into the contest. This was the star forward's fourth game during this hot seven-game stretch in which he has posted multiple points. Matthews started out the season in modest fashion, but his recent roll has him up to 17 goals and 28 points in 24 games. Look out.
