This game did not start out well at all of the Golden Knights. Just 16 seconds in Artemi Panarin got the Blue Jackets on the board. Columbus scored again a few minutes later, but another offside challenge by the Golden Knights brought it back. Erik Haula tied it early in the 2nd, but things spiraled quickly after that. A messy 3rd period led to nothing and the Golden Knights dropped their fourth in five games.

  • James Neal to the 3rd line? It may just make sense.

Certainly not Reaves’ fault tonight, but this is kind of the story of the game.
