Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Blue Jackets finished one point out of the playoffs. Former GM Scott Howson's rule did not come back to bite them; they would have lost out to the Wild in the previous tie-breaker scenario (total wins), too.
But this one stings. It stings for many because of the way this team played: so tough, so resilient, so full of passion and energy, even in a season when a compressed schedule made hamburger of their groins.
About two hours after last night's game ended, three mini-dozers came through the Zamboni entrance and started ripping up the ice, always a depressing scene.
Another hockey season has ended in Columbus ... but this was not like so many of the others.
