The Blue Jackets won four straight in a stunning sweep of Tampa Bay last year. If they're going to eliminate the Lightning again, they'll have to find a way to win three in a row. The Jackets are now in a 3-games-to-1 hole in their best of seven series, after a 2-1 loss in Game four. The Jackets had opportunities, but were able to score only once on a second period goal by Cam Atkinson. It's been a familiar theme. In all three losses in the series the Jackets have scored two goals or fewer.
Fox Sports Ohio analyst and former Blue Jackets enforcer Jody Shelley talked with me Tuesday morning on the Joel Riley show on 610 WTVN. Jody talked about the Jackets offensive struggles, the challenge of rallying from a 3-1 deficit and much more. Thanks to Jody for joining me.
