The Columbus Blue Jackets, winners of four straight, welcomed in the Metropolitain division leading New York Islanders.
Here’s what went down.
A Casey Cizikas breakaway goal and several Thomas Greiss stops were the difference as the Islanders led 1-0 after 20 minutes.
Casey Cizikas scored his second breakaway goal of the night to make it 2-0.
Josh Bailey scored on a deflected puck to make it 3-0 late in the period.
A whole lot of outside chances for Columbus. A whole lot of nothing.
