The Columbus Blue Jackets have had their share of ups and downs in their series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and those downs have included a lot of near misses. One of those near misses came late in the third period of a 3-2 game in which Matt Calvert nearly missed what would have been a game-tying goal.
Columbus needs something big to happen as their loss in Game 3 was behind deflating as they allowed a 3-1 lead evaporate and turn into a 4-3 loss.
But while they need big things to happen, it always seems like they’re just inches away from making it happen. Instead, the Blue Jackets have their backs up against the wall but are still somehow in the series.
