“We know we need to get inside,” Tortorella said. “It’s easy to pick it apart. There were some shifts we’re right there, and sometimes the puck bounces and different things happen, so I’m not going to get into a long dissertation about getting guys to the inside.”
Seth Jones had another assist, but also had some poor luck on Buffalo’s second goal.
And that was an impressive goal. It will probably be replayed quite a bit on television, and also got a little rerun on the videoboard inside the arena. Bobrovsky already had it committed to memory, though.
Alexander Wennberg missed just a little more than two weeks with his back injury. He was out eight games with the injury, his second of the season but having him back quicker than expected is a nice boost to the Blue Jackets’ depth up front.
They had a season-high 48 in a 3-2 shootout victory against the Florida Panthers on Sunday at Nationwide Arena, but that included a five-minute 3-on-3 overtime session. This one ended in regulation, so it was the most shots they’ve had this season in a game that lasts 60 minutes.
