Oh No Columbus

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers,

With 3.9 seconds remaining, Chicago’s Ben Smith scored through a pile of humanity in front of Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, the winning goal in a 4-3 Chicago victory before 18,695 in Nationwide Arena.

The building erupted when Smith scored, because the building was at least half filled (60 percent? 70 percent?) by Blackhawks fans. The Blue Jackets are 1-11-1 the last 13 times Nationwide has been sold out, including 0-6 this season. They're 1-4-2 in their last seven home games overall.

But this one ...

“Sadly, we’ve had a few of these (kind of losses),” Blue Jackets center Mark Letestu said. “We’ll bounce back. This is going to sting for a couple hours, but we have to get ready for the (New York) Islanders (on Sunday). There’s a big picture at stake here, and this one loss isn’t going to derail it.”

The same kind of guys who are going to turn the Wings defensemen into pretzels when the game is that close at the end.
