Game #51 QuickCap: Columbus Blue Jackets Drop Fifth Straight
Here’s what you missed.
The Columbus Blue Jackets took the ice at home on a four game losing streak.
Could they break the streak against the Blues, or would the streak hit five?
St. Louis got on the board first as a bad save from Joonas Korpisalo leaked through and found a waiting Ryan O’Reilly at the back post.
Carl Gunnarson won a board battle and tipped in a goal with 19:15 gone to make it 2-0 and further bury the Blue Jackets early.
The Jackets scored (yay, Oliver Bjorkstrand!) but gave up a goal 34 seconds later (shit).
Pierre-Luc Dubois cut it to a 3-2 deficit with 17:23 gone.
Oscar Sundqvist scored an empty netter to end it.
