by Kristyn Repke / Columbus Blue Jackets

Welcome to By The Numbers. Here, we'll break down the most important facts, figures and statistics from that night's game. Despite the final score, there's more to the game's story than the numbers on the scoreboard.

Here's a look at some of the most notable statistics and numbers from the Blue Jackets' 5-4 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center:

0.872 - Curtis McElhinney's save percentage, as he stopped 34 of 39 shots on goal. His save percentage was better than that of opposing goaltender and ex-Blue Jacket Steve Mason (0.857) but was unable to come away with the victory.

7:07 - The time it took the Blue Jackets to record their first shot on goal of the game.

12 - Losses for the Blue Jackets this season when they do not outshoot their opponents. They were outshot 39 to 28.

18 - Shots on goal for the Blue Jackets in the second period, which ties their season high for shots in a single period.

65 - Shot attempts by the Flyers. They put 39 shots on goal, missed 16 shots and had 20 shots blocked by the Blue Jackets.

97 - Games before Cam Atkinson scored his first shorthanded goal of his NHL career. His goal put the Blue Jackets ahead 1-0 in the first period.

100 - Career goals for Claude Giroux after he scored two late goals in the third period to win the game.

516 - Road hits for the Blue Jackets, who had 30 tonight. They are second in the NHL to the Edmonton Oilers in that statistic.

4,457 - Days since the Blue Jackets last held a lead in Philadelphia. The last time they did that? Oct. 9, 2001--the Blue Jackets' inaugural season.
