Canucks rally in the second period to beat Blue Jackets 5-2
COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Blue Jackets are limping into their five-day break after another surprising loss to one of the NHL’s worst teams.
Sven Baertschi sparked a four-goal second period for Vancouver, Jacob Markstrom had 27 saves and the Canucks rallied to beat Columbus 5-2 on Friday night.
The Blue Jackets also lost 3-1 to Buffalo on Thursday night despite outshooting the Sabres 45-29. Columbus got off to a strong start against Vancouver before the decisive second period. The Blue Jackets now get some time to recover while still holding onto second place in the Metropolitan Division.
