Game 73/New Jersey: My Take
The other team was in 15th place in the conference, sorting out April tee times.
Guess which team won, 6-3? It wasn't the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Jackets played a lackluster game - especially on defense - committing too many stupid penalties that led to the New Jersey Devils capitalizing. It's as if they just sat there and watched the Jackets implode.
Mason wasn't great, but he had little help and, by the back half of the 2nd period, dwindling confidence.
A pathetic performance by the Jackets. I hope Scott Howson put aside his scouting to see that mess, take notes and base his housecleaning on what he saw.
