|Vancouver 3 - Columbus 2|
0-3-0, 5th in the Central Division, 15th in the Western Conference
For those who are new to the blog (and judging by traffic counts this season, there are a lot of you), here's how my DBJ recaps operate: I don't do game recaps. There are plenty of good sites and blogs that can tell you what happened and when. Go check out the "Blogs/News" tab at the top of the page. I offer a brief handful of thoughts and impressions in true blog fashion. Generally five, but don't be surprised if I toss in a bonus one or two if something was particularly compelling.
1. I feel horrible saying this, seeing as Steve Mason actually played a decent game tonight (22 saves on 25 shots - not all-star contending but not worthy of getting pulled) under consistent pressure from the Canucks, but it was his inability to control the rebound on the third Vancouver goal that lost the game for Columbus.
