The Blue Jackets Are Staring At Elimination

from Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch,

The grim reaper will be roaming the concourses in Nationwide Arena when the Blue Jackets play host to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6.

If the Blue Jackets win, the series goes back to Pittsburgh for Game 7 on Wednesday night.

If the Blue Jackets lose, they will shake hands with the Penguins after the final buzzer and clean out their locker stalls on Tuesday.

“It’s a do-or-die game,” center Brandon Dubinsky said. “Throughout my playoff experience, the toughest game for any team to win is the fourth one because the other team is so desperate to stay alive.

“That’s where we’re at. We have to have a good start, a fast start, and we have to take the action to them.”
