Blue Jackets At Blues Second Period Score: Lead Flips To Columbus, 3-2

Not the best period of play for the Blues, and frankly possibly the worst period of play under Ken Hitchcock so far. The Blues’ lack of pressure, especially in their own zone, allowed the Blue Jackets to net two goals. The first goal of the period was an awkward deflection credited to Fedor Tyutin but which also could have gone in off of Derek Dorsett:

The credit, if possible, should have gone to Roman Polak.

The second goal came for the Jackets on the power play, which Columbus was granted for an absolutely questionable boarding call on Kevin Shattenkirk. With just one second to go in the period, Mark Letestu snapped one high glove side past Halak to give the Jackets the lead.

As Norm Sanders pointed out on Twitter, the Blues are 1-6-1 when trailing after two periods — possibly because it requires them to score more than two goals to win those games.
