PREVIEW: Blue Jackets vs. Kings

The Blue Jackets look for a home win vs. Los Angeles

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider / BlueJackets.com

KINGS (11-19-2) at BLUE JACKETS (16-12-2) 
Thursday, 7 p.m., Nationwide Arena (Fox Sports Ohio, Fox Sports app, 97.1 The Fan) - BUY TICKETS

The storyline was written as soon as Oliver Bjorkstrand took a drop pass from Scott Harrington, curled into the high slot, and ripped a laser of a shot past Vancouver goalie Jacob Markstrom on Tuesday night. 

The snipe gave Columbus a 2-1 lead and snapped a month-long goal-less streak for the Blue Jackets' winger, and both the team and Bjorkstrand were primed for sweet redemption. 

"I thought we were going to get over that tipping point when (Bjorkstrand) scores," head coach John Tortorella said. "We're alive (on the bench), eight or nine minutes left to play. I thought it was set up really nice for us."

RECAP: Blue Jackets 2, Canucks 3

Columbus sees a third-period lead disappear in Nationwide Arena.

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider / BlueJackets.com

The Blue Jackets couldn't get back in the win column Tuesday night at Nationwide Arena, allowing two goals in the last 3:04 to lose 3-2 to visiting Vancouver. Columbus fell to 16-12-2 on the season while Vancouver improved to 14-16-3.

Game in a Paragraph 

Oliver Bjorkstrand's third-period goal gave Columbus a 2-1 lead, but late tallies by Elias Pettersson and Jake Virtanen gave the Canucks the win. Seth Jones scored 47 seconds into the game for the other CBJ goal on a night the team played an improved all-around game but still left with nothing to show for it in the win column.
