A very tight checking game in the 1st period led to a scoreless first two periods. The pace picked up a bit with Columbus pouring on some pressure in the 2nd, but couldn’t get one past Subban. The Blue Jackets came flying out of the break and scored just 40 seconds into the 3rd. Vegas started creating more offense but never could find the equalizer.
