The Columbus Blue Jackets fell to Vancouver last night, 1-0 in a shootout. In a defensive battle, the game was scoreless through three periods and in overtime as Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky was fantastic, saving all 32 shots sent at him. In the shootout, both sides were denied on their first two attempts, but Maxim LaPierre would tally a goal for the Canucks and Matt Calvert’s last chance shot would come up short to give Vancouver the win. Columbus will now head to Edmonton on Thursday. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 9:15 and drop of the puck at 9:30.
