With Loss To Pittsburgh, Blue Jackets End Playoff Run

Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets' season ended with a 5-2 loss to the Penguins last night in Pittsburgh.

Columbus trailed by three in the second period but had a potential tying goal waved off in the third for interference. After the game ended, Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella described his frustration.

“Well, we had a lot of chances. I think we had over 30 chances, which is just insane," Tortorella said. "We needed to capitalize, we didn’t. They did."

The Penguins won the series four games to one in their attempt at a back-to-back Stanley Cup Championship.

Columbus captain Nick Foligno did not play due to a lower-body injury announced following pregame warmups.
