So DBJ has a little sumthin' sumthin' on CBJ Game 28: Tampa Bay

Columbus 1 - Tampa Bay 0
The Columbus Blue Jackets continued their November "win one, lose one" cycle into December by rebounding from a loss to the Bruins in Game 27 with a win over Tampa Bay tonight, 1-0, at Nationwide Arena.

The most notable takeaway from this game came in net: Sergei Bobrovsky crashed back into the net awkwardly at 15:47 of the third period and had to be helped from the ice.  Coach Todd Richards said that Bob will be getting an MRI tomorrow, so nobody has an exact idea what's wrong at this point.

Bob stopped all 18 shots that he faced (Only 18 shots from the Bolts in 45 minutes?  Dang, they need Stamkos back badly.).  His backup Curtis McElhinney, stopped the remaining 8 shots and preserved the shutout.  Curtis is no Bob, but he's proven serviceable in a pinch.  Let's hope Bob isn't out long.

And because I am who I am, you know that I'm going to take a moment to gush over (My Man) Nick Foligno, who only crashes the net and scores goals WITH A BETTER SHOOTING PERCENTAGE THAN RICK NASH.  How about his goal, too?  Check out this between the legs beauty:

Gotta love it!  And the two standings points, too!

Here's the haiku:

Vezina goes down
But the shutout is preserved
Win Lose Win Lose Win

Next up: Friday, 7PM, against our expansion cousins, the Minnesota Wild.
