The Columbus Blue Jackets welcomed the Washington Capitals to Nationwide Arena as the Jackets looked to take a 3-0 series lead in their first round matchup.
Here’s what went down.
No score, despite both teams having power play chances. Also, this happened:
Washington scored one good goal, and a second that was then overturned by an offside challenge from John Tortorella.
The Jackets took two stupid slashing penalties to give Washington a five on three, and John Carlson was able to capitalize because Columbus cannot stay out of the box.
NOTHING BUT RESPECT FOR MY PRESIDENT

Columbus dominated high danger chances. No score. My heart exploded.
Washington won it.
