QuickCap: Blue Jackets defeat Blues 7-4

That was unexpected!

NHL: Columbus Blue Jackets at St. Louis Blues
Billy Hurst-USA TODAY Sports

Entering this game, I think most of us felt pretty bad about our prospects. Torts had made some questionable lineup decisions, with Sergei Bobrovsky, Dean Kukan, and Sonny Milano sitting in favor of Joonas Korpisalo, Scott Harrington, and Markus Hannikainen, respectively.

An early 2-0 St. Louis lead seemed to validate those concerns. Then a funny thing happened: 4 straight goals, then another 3 in the third period for a Columbus victory.

I was planning on having a venting open thread to let us unleash our frustrations after a lackluster loss. Instead, we have this high scoring win to enjoy. Go figure!

Full recap to come in the morning.
