Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch,
Franzen’s second goal so infuriated Jackets forward Derek Dorsett that he snapped his stick over Mason’s crossbar as the horn sounded. Dorsett, generously listed as 6 feet, later started a center-ice brawl with 6-4 Jonathan Ericsson. Ericsson had him by 30 pounds and several inches of reach.
Dorsett was pummeled.
“Someone — a young guy, an old guy, whoever — somebody has to grab a hold of this and take charge and get us out of this,” Dorsett said. “I’m beside myself. I never, ever thought we would be in this situation.”
Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash questioned the team’s leadership, including himself.
“It’s got to be better,” Nash said. “When you are a top player on your team, you have to get your team out of these slumps.”
