Highlight Recap: Canucks at Blue Jackets

Here’s how this one went.

Eager to put Thursday’s loss behind them, the Columbus Blue Jackets were back on the ice Friday night against the Vancouver Canucks, looking for a needed-win before their bye week.

Well, it was a nice thought.

1st Period

All-Star Seth Jones put Columbus on the board with his eighth, and 10th power play point at 4:33. Nick Foligno picked up the assist and has points in three of the last four games.

2nd Period

Columbus probably could have had a few more goals in the first period, as dictated by their pace of play, shots, and scoring chances. Well, the Canucks instead paced the second period.

[Insert dumpster fire gif]

First, it was Sven Baertschi, fed by the nifty no-look, backhand pass from Thomas Vanek. Then minutes later, it was Erik Gudbranson coming away with his first goal of the season. Brendan Gaunce scored on a literally broken stick, and Alexander Edler was credited with the fourth goal. Edler’s shot from the point bounced off the inside of Markus Nutivaara’s skate, just in front of Bobrovsky.

3rd Period

Columbus finally found the net again. This time, Scott Harrington, firing a slap shot. His second of the season was assisted by Foligno, picking up his second point of the night.

But Vancouver held on for the win.
