Game Recap: Columbus Blue Jackets Vs. Vancouver Canucks

February 13th, 2010 by Ed Cmar Leave a reply »

It was bound to happen, sooner or later, given the Columbus Blue Jackets were playing their third consecutive NHL division leader, but interim coach Claude Noel experienced his first lost as a Blue Jackets coach, by a score of 4-3, against the prolific, talented and physical Vancouver Canucks. A total of 16,564 loyal fans braved the winter elements to witness another impressive, solid performance by the Columbus Blue Jackets, albeit in a losing effort.  


It was quite an entertaining game which was decided by one of the more fluky goals you will ever witness. Vancouver's Mikael Samuelsson at 7:56 in the third period launched a shot that was redirected by Blue Jackets' center Derick Brassard in the high slot and sent high into the air, which then fluttered approximately 15-20 feet in the air and over the back of the head of goalie Steve Mason. The game was an energetic, fast-paced, physical affair, offering lots of ‘back and forth’ action on both ends of the ice.
