The Blue Jackets Do Everything But Win

fromMichael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,

The Blue Jackets outshot the Hurricanes 47-20. It was their highest shot count of the season....

The Blue Jackets outshot the Hurricanes 19-0 in the third period. It was only the third time in their history that they have held an opponent shotless in a period, and the first time in nearly seven years....

The Hurricanes scored on their first shot of the game.

The Jackets did not score until their final shot of the game.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes a demon temptress plays with your mind.

Once again, the earth moved in the Metropolitan Division. The New York Rangers won. The Philadelphia Flyers won in overtime. The Washington Capitals won in Anaheim. The Blue Jackets, who started the night one point out of second place, slipped to fourth in the division and eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

The short version: This morning, they are holding down the second wild card, even in points with the Capitals and one point ahead of the Detroit Red Wings.
