True or false - John Tortorella's Columbus Blue Jackets have the best record in the NHL? The answer is true. Surprised?

The former UMaine Black Bear player has his CBJ team with 50 points(23-5-4) and riding a 12-game winning streak as play begins tonight after the mandatory league break for Christmas.

The opponent tonight is Boston, a team that has handed the Blue Jackets two of their five losses.

The up-and-down Bruins are 18-14-4 but have scored 11 goals in two games vs Columbus.

Go figure.
