from the Columbus Dispatch,
The Blue Jackets lost to the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 in a nine-round shootout in front of 15,713 in the RBC Center. But, this being the exhibition season, the score is merely an aside.
“We’re going to be the toughest team in the league this year,” Fritsche said. “What this should tell everybody is that we’re not going to back down from anybody. If there’s an issue, our five guys are going to be right in the middle of it before their five guys are. That’s just the way it’s going to be.
“So, I’d say, yeah, we’re going to have a lot of nights like this.”
There were 39 penalties for 142 penalty minutes, including eight fighting majors, 12 roughing minors, three 10-minute misconducts and two game misconducts.
