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' 1-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning at Nationwide Arena:


2 - Shutouts this season for the Blue Jackets. The team gets credit for this shutout (not an individual goaltender) as both Sergei Bobrovsky (18 saves) and Curtis McElhinney (8 saves) put together a solid effort in net.

10 - The number of games in the Blue Jackets win-loss-win-loss streak.

11 - Hits tonight for Blake Comeau, who set a single game record for the Blue Jackets. The original high? Seven. Comeau now has 92 total hits on the season, which currently ranks top 10 in the NHL.

25 - The number of wins the Blue Jackets have all-time when Ryan Johansen has a point (25-11-3 record). He now has 20 points for the season, which leads the team in that category.
