FINAL: Islanders 3, Blue Jackets 2 (OT)
Columbus extended its point streak to four games with a 3-2 loss against the New York Islanders at Nationwide Arena.Game in a Paragraph
The Blue Jackets fell into a one-goal hole twice in the opening two periods, only to respond to tie the game each time. Columbus buzzed for the go-ahead goal in the third but it never came, necessitating overtime for a second straight night despite a 80-52 edge for the CBJ in shot attempts in regulation. The Isles then won it 33 seconds into overtime on a goal from Brock Nelson.CBJ Notables
- Seth Jones scored his first goal of the season, giving him 40 in his career, tying him with teammates David Savard and Zach Werenski for second all-time in goals by CBJ defensemen.
- Boone Jenner scored his first goal of the year, giving him 200 points in his Blue Jackets career.
- Joonas Korpisalo made 32 saves.
The Islanders held a 2-1 lead after a period, and it could have been more as Oliver Wahlstrom hit the post less than two minutes in and a number of other weird bounces almost amounted to disaster for the Blue Jackets.
But it was 2-1, and the Isles got on the board first 8:25 into the game on an unassisted goal by Mathew Barzal. A clearing attempt by the Islanders bounced over Zach Werenski's stick at the blue line, and Barzel picked it up with speed, bore down on Korpisalo and put a shot between his legs from short range.
Columbus tied it at 12:07 as Jones got on the board off a nice feed from Sonny Milano. The diagonal pass from low on the right to the top of the left circle gave Jones time, and his wristed went over Thomas Greiss' glove to tie the score at 1.
The Islanders then took the lead at 16:32 of the period. Anthony Beauvillier's shot tied up Korpisalo, and the Islanders forward tapped the rebound across the crease for the onrushing Michael Dal Colle to tap in to make it 2-1.
Columbus came out for the second strongly, with Jones and Cam Atkinson getting early chances and the Blue Jackets putting holding an 11-0 edge in shots on goal eight minutes into the period. The tying goal didn't come, though, until 2:14 remained in the period, as Greiss spilled a shot by Dean Kukan and Jenner was in the right spot to put home the rebound.
The momentum carried right on to the third as Columbus had nine shot attempts in the first 2:28 of the period and a number of near goals. Among the notable misses was a floating shot by Atkinson that got by Greiss' blocker and hit the post, a pair of saves by the Isles' goalie in tight on Atkinson, and a try by Jenner that got behind Greiss before the netminder dove back and swiped it off the line.
New York had the puck the entire overtime and won it, as Nick Leddy followed his own rebound, got it back and fed Brock Nelson across the crease for the game-winning finish.Notable
