Quick Takes: Blue Jackets at Lightning

Here’s what happened.

Tonight the Columbus Blue Jackets, losers of 3 out of their last 4, traveled to Tampa Bay to take on the Lightning. The Lightning, buoyed by the emotion of retiring Martin St. Louis’ number tonight, would look to exact revenge after losing their first two against Columbus.

Sergei Bobrovsky apparently became ill after the warmup, and so Korpisalo would get the start.

The first period was terrible - Columbus was outshot 19-6, trailed 1-0 on the scoreboard, and posted a 34.88% CORGI. Other than that, everything was fine. We’re all fine here, now. How are you.

The second period? Well, not great at the start, but eventually Josh Anderson tied it. Tampa dominated play, but Columbus had changed their lines and started to tilt the ice the other way.

4:29 into the third period, Columbus finally took the lead behind Nick Foligno. It took a few minutes, but Columbus found their skates and began dictating play. The Jackets were never seriously threatened, and Boone Jenner iced the game with 65 seconds to go.
