The Columbus Blue Jackets should have a five-game losing streak going. Thanks to the heroics (and luck) of goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, the streak ended at four. For the third consecutive game, the Blue Jackets scored just once in regulation. Unlike their games against the Predators and Hurricanes, they found a way to win a game
